Teething is such a pain ... for the babies who must endure the pain and for their families who must endure the results of that pain -- constant whining, at least in my daughter's case.

She wants to chew on everything, and everything she reaches for makes me cringe with thoughts of harmful ingredients it may harbor. I'm not one to give my baby whiskey, so I've been on the hunt for other options, and in my opinion, you can't stock up on too many, too early -- teething starts soon after birth and continues for a long, long time.

Here's a great toy I found that she can really sink her teeth (or gums) into with no worries of harmful effects. It's made of unfinished maple wood and is 100% recycled and recyclable.

I love the holes that make it easy to grasp and fun to play with, and for each one purchased, a tree will be planted for Trees for the Future.

If your political persuasions won't allow you to order an elephant, there's also a really cute giraffe version.

Have you thought of safe teething solutions for your baby?
