As the name suggests, teething toys have a dual purpose – they are something for baby to chew on when gums are sore, but they can also entertain.
And when even a toy won't distract for the pain, there are also natural and tasty gels to ease sore gums.
At Bounty, we have selected our favourite teething products.
