The 7 Best Teething Toys to Soothe A Cranky Baby

Before you had kids, you probably gave little, to no, thought about what’s involved when a baby gets teeth. Why would you? But even once you have your first baby, no one warns you that teething isn’t a thing that happens and then quickly ends. Ha!

Instead, teething is a long-drawn out marathon of months spent wondering if the reason baby isn’t sleeping or eating or being her usual happy self is because she’s teething, or because of a developmental leap, or simply because she’s a baby and everything she does is confusing.


Luckily, there are a ton of products on the market just for this uncomfortable time in baby’s life. Here we round up 7 of the best-selling teethers on Amazon. We do want to add the caveat though that babies being babies, you may want to buy a couple of these to up the odds you’ll find one that your child actually likes. And when you find that one, buy it in bulk because it’s definitely going to get lost and you’ll want to be that parent who’s like “No big deal, I have six more in a drawer right here”.

If you think your baby is gonna like it cold …

You’ll want to look for a teether with a cooling feature, like this Nuby Ice Gel Teether Keys ($3.88 on Amazon). Throw the keys in the fridge and thanks to an icy gel, they’ll stay cool long enough to keep your baby happily mouthing away.


If you want a teether that does double duty …

Check out the Baby Banana Infant Training Toothbrush and Teether ($6.99 on Amazon). The soft bristles help to soothe sore gums and then the teether doubles up as a first toothbrush. Getting kids used to brushing their teeth can sometimes be a battle, so we love that this fun teether helps babies adjust early.

If you’ve got a baby fashionista …

Nothing says style quite like a silicone raspberry teething ring! The RaZbaby RaZ-Berry Silicone Teether ($3.56 on Amazon) has a bumpy texture that many babies find super soothing on sore gums. And because of it’s pacifier-like design, younger babies who haven’t quite mastered their hands may find this easier to use.


If you believe it’s never too early to instill healthy eating habits …

Then you’ll definitely want to nab this super cute carrot teether. The Infantino Good Bites Textured Carrot Teether ($4.84 on Amazon) is first and foremost adorable, but we also love the easy-to-hold handles and the two different textured sides.

If you like to kick it old school …

We’re guessing you’ll like the green sprouts Cooling Teether ($3.99 on Amazon), which reminds us of teethers before they got fancy. You can stick this one in the fridge for extra cooling relief if needed.


If you want an educational teether …

The Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle & Sensory Teether Toy ($14 on is a classic. It’s won multiple newborn toy awards — apparently those are a thing! — for its design and the way it promotes one-handed and two-handed play. On top of that, the multiple colored silicon tubes are perfect for baby’s gums.

If you want to be on trend …

Sophie the Giraffe ($24.99 on Amazon) is on basically every baby recommendation list ever. The French-made baby toy — Sophie la giraffe — has been around for more than 55 years and continues to delight babies everywhere. It’s a different feel from some of the other teethers on this list, so if your baby seems to want something softer, this might be a good bet.
