Plastic Teethers are Out!

We're sure, like any other parent, you are concerned with what your baby puts in his mouth and here's a little helpful guide as to the reasons why: 

You'll definitely want to avoid any plastic teethers that contain BPA, PVC or phthlates:
  • BPA or bisphenol-A is a plastics chemical that mimics estrogen and disrupts the body's hormonal systems. Many companies also simply replace BPA with BPS (bisphenol-S, which is just as toxic, if not more than BPA!) so just because a product is marked as BPA-free doesn't mean it's safe
  • PVC or polyvinyl chloride is the third most common plastic in the world and also the most toxic! 
  • Phthalates are chemicals added to plastics to make them soft and supple. They don't bond to plastic though, so over time they leach out - a big no no!
  • Naturally anti-bacterial
  • 100% non-toxic
  • Natural wood avoids all risk of allergy and toxicity
  • Wood is thicker and more durable than plastics
  • Easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth and leave to air dry
