Keys Are Not Good For Teething Babies
Time and again we’ve seen parents give their ring of keys to teething babies. This is a bad idea for a handful of reasons. The keys on your keychain likely have plenty of germs from being set on shop counters, restaurant tables, and even your your hands. The edges of traditional keys could potentially cut the mouth of a baby. If a baby ends up getting a key off the ring they could choke on it. Some keys are coated with paint or nickel, and the majority of keys are made of brass, which is really not a good choice for a teething item.
Better Teething Choices For Babies
Below are some better options of teething items similar to that which we’ve used with our kids. These will give your baby a sense of having their own keys, without the risks involved with them actually chewing on real keys. We’ve included some that give a cooling effect when chewed, as well as non-frozen options. Hope these ideas help!
