Wallet. Sunglasses. Car keys. When Baby’s cutting a tooth you reach for whatever’s nearby. So long as it soothes the pain and restores the peace.
Next time the gums swell, save the contents of your bag from the saliva bath. Lifefactory’s new circular teether is safer, cleaner, and just as convenient.
The lightweight, medical grade silicone toy comes in three sunshiny colors (pink, yellow, blue) for stylish layering. Plus, its textured surface and ring-shaped design make it easy for Baby to hold, chomp, and explore.
But the genius part? You wear it like a bracelet.
So it’s always on hand.
Available at Sprout San Francisco, 1828 Union Street, between Laguna and Octavia Streets (415-359-9205 or sproutsanfrancisco.com).
