Green Bean teether

Organic cotton green bean

Message to mummies! If you are looking for fantastic teethers I would like to share with you some of the best I have found. We are delighted to be stocking the vegetable and fruit collection from Under the Nile they are just so cool. The green bean is a firm favourite because it’s easy for babies to grasp, lightweight, colourful and soft but with enough firmness to ease aching gums. No chance of babies bashing themselves in the eye either. Or what about this fruit tote which comes complete with 4 different fruits watermelon, banana, pear and grapes.

These fruits and vegetables are all hand picked because they are made from 100% organic cotton which is coloured using metal free and vegetable dyes so no problem about them being chewed and sucked. An additional plus factor is that unlike the usual hard teethers they will absorb the dribble so much less likelihood of a sore face. Machine washable and can be tumble dried so if they get grubby it’s not a problem. Under the Nile are supportive of fair trade so you can feel reassured that your baby’s beloved toy is helping somebody else by ensuring that they are paid a fair wage.
These cute teethers will introduce babies to their 5 a day at an early age and hopefully help develop a positive attitude to eating up their fruit and veggies. All in all they have just got to be a win win buy.
