What’s better than a pacifier to soothe a baby? A combination of bright colors catch the baby’s attention and also calms them down when they are being cranky. Be a little careful and choose a BPA free, silicone variety as plastic versions may cause health hazards. A nice binkie also puts habits like thumb sucking to rest and we are sure the parents won’t be able to thank you enough for this.
A teething baby becomes fussy and cranky. Their discomfort not only causes them pain, but can also spoil celebrations for the rest of the family. A teether would help in comforting the baby and also lessen the pain. Keeping the infants’ health in mind, stuffed teethers have also been introduced in the market.
