Looking for a baby shower gift? Or a gift for your own? These handmade wood teether are perfect for little mouths. Each ring is made of natural maple hardwood that has been hand-brushed with a mix of organic beeswax and olive oil, that protects the wood from splintering and preserves the wood. The beeswax is certified organic and purchased from beekeepers in the US. The fabric is made of 100% quilting weight cotton and 100% cotton terry cloth, feeling soft for little fingers to hug and tug. Beth Hartman-Peters is the brains of The Bird and the Elephant. We love her creative designs of these Wood Teether’s and so will your baby!

Traveling with your little one? The Lotus Everywhere Crib by Guava Family is a great way to easily transport your kids resting place (hands-free) wherever you travel!
