When do babies need teethers?

When your baby sprouts their first tooth depends a lot on genetics, and your baby may start teething sooner or later. So, they may need teethers to help soothe babies’ swollen gums when they start teething.

Chewing on a teether can provide some comfort to the baby, but there are many other reasons that babies like to put teether toys in their mouth to chew on. Babies generally try to put anything they can get their hands on (some can be dangerous) into their mouths at an early age. This encourages the baby to move their tongue inside their mouth. It helps them become aware of their mouth and strengthen facial muscles, as well as aid in speech production.
