In my previous article , Dikemali – Ayurvedic Teething Remedy , I have shared one of the thing i used to soothe my baby in the cold days here. The other thing that I used was, a teether , A Silver Teether , a traditional teething soother recommended by my mother in law.
It was very thoughtful of her , to have it made by jeweler , according to instructions & design given by her. It was of almost same design as my husband’s & brother In law’s teether. So we had this , Customized Silver Teether , made for our little Prince , ready to use , by the time he was born.
I was eager to see it , as being a marathi by birth , i was unaware of such teether. But to my sheer surprise , teether was simple yet elegant & strong & solid in nature made of pure silver .
- I could sterilize , it easily as compared to other teether.
- I found it very safe , my son was taking something in his mouth , which did not contain harmful chemicals , toxic colors or any kind of adulteration.
- By chewing the , teether if anything goes in his tummy is pure silver which wont harm him in any way.
- Feel of relaxation given by trust of goodness, as it is used for past many many years ,for babies.
It is not that Silver Teether was the only thing used , but it was my son’s favorite soothing toy . I am calling it toy as , he used to carry it almost while day in his hands , & chew. he chewed it so so much that condition to take a photo of. So the picture shared above is from internet, my son’s teether is of same Design & Shape & Size.
Please, see to it that the teether, has all the round edges & smooth surface as baby may have a cut on gums by sharp edges.
Happy Parenting & Happy Teething !!
