We're really loving these wooden alphabet teething toys by Etsy seller Little Alouette. They are a great alternative to plastic teethers. Plus they're great to look at.
Each teething rattle is made of solid hardwood and finished with organic flax seed oil. They are filled with beans so that they make a soft sound when baby shakes them. Buy a few as a gift for a new baby in his initials. Even when baby outgrows a teether or rattle, they can be used as display on a wall. You can find them in Little Alouette's shop.
