Teething is an exciting time! Your little one is growing up right before your eyes and you can see those little tooth buds right under the surface of Baby's swollen gums.
You've probably asked yourself some questions like...
How long does teething last? How do you know if your baby is teething? What are the symptoms of teething? As with everything in life, each baby has their own symptoms and the teething experience is different for every family. Drool, fussing, sleep regression - these are a few things you might be dealing with for several months or even longer.
Five (5) Under the Nile Bandana Dribble Bibs
Save your baby's clothing from waterfalls of drool with our super cute bandana style drool bibs. We love anything to help cut down on the amount of clothing changes and laundry. They're also super cute and make for instant baby fashion!
Our quirky and colorful dribble bibs are super absorbent and awesomely sustainable. They are a zero waste design, made from 100% Egyptian Organic Cotton scraps left over from our clothing production.
One (1) Mello&Co NawGum Teether
As you probably know, Baby prefers to gnaw on your finger above any teething toy. We love the NawGum because it actually feels squishy yet firm just like a real finger. Help ease Baby's pain with this BPA-free and non-toxic teether by Mello & Co!
This universal teether is designed to manage all areas of the mouth, and during all three stages of baby’s oral development: gumming, front and side teeth and back molars. Nawgum’s design has four sections — two arms and two bumpers — that each has different textures for safely grazing gums. These sections are soft and rubbery on the surface, with a slightly hardened middle, to simulate a bone. The arms are also deliberately situated in opposite directions to help the child maneuver the device. It's a really fun 'cactus' shape that will keep your baby entertained!
One (1) Siliskin® Sippy Cup
Most likely, when your baby is in full teething mode around 6 months old your pediatrician might recommend to start introducing a sippy cup (It all happens so fast!). Baby will probably play more than actually drink from it, but pretty soon you'll see your little one get the hang of it. Practice makes progress! We LOVE the Silikids Silicone Sippy Cup. The sippy top fits over ANY cup! That's right - if you find yourself at a friend's house or restaurant and they don't have sippy cups, no worries, you've got a Silikids sippy top!
Silicone is a great non-toxic material that is durable, non-toxic, and more than just BPA-Free. The Siliskin® Sippy Cup is 100% silicone with an embedded stainless steel ring keeping it from collapsing when squeezed. The sippy cup comes with a universal sippy top that fits over any size cup. The spout is also free of intricate valves allowing for easy cleaning and easier use. Perfect for on-the-go, tabletop, indoor and outdoor use. Excellent for preventing big spills! Time to GoSili!

There are many ways to navigate smoothly through the teething process. Here are some quick tips on teething:
Ease the Pain:
Teething rings and toys are made to help soothe aching gums. Are you in a bind because you haven't gotten a NawGum teether yet? Amy V. of San Jose, CA recommends to try a frozen bagel (under your careful supervision, of course). Consult with your pediatrician to see if that's a good option for you.
Drool, drool, lots of drool is a noticeable part of teething. To avoid skin irritation, try your best to dry Baby's chin often and prevent wetness on clothes with a drool bib like our super cute bandana style Dribble Bibs!
A Parent's Love
Nothing beats comfort than extra cuddles from mom or dad. The teething process may be stressful - it's hard to see your little one in pain, and also no fun to deal with fussing - but cherish these moments because they grow up so fast!
