One truth about just about all babies: they put EVERYTHING in their mouth. Not only does chewing on all your favorite things help them discover the world around them, but it also helps relieve discomfort they may have with teething. To sooth those sensitive gums, you may want to opt for wooden teethers that are free of chemicals like BPA, PVC and phthalates. Wooden teethers are also really easy to clean, naturally antibacterial, and rock-hard–making them ideal to chomp away on. Wood is also a material that can be recycled, and it can pretty much last forever! When looking for wooden teethers, be sure that they are non-splintering and that they aren’t made in China–many of these have toxic paints and can contain lead.

Here’s 6 of our favorite wooden teethers to naturally comfort and alleviate pain.
