Simple wooden teething ring

At 17 weeks a wooden teething ring is Henry's best friend.  He has this one and a crochet covered one which he loves to sooth his sore gums on.  He keeps the wooden one in his left hand and the crochet covered on in his right hand :)

The best thing about a ring of course is that at this age anything that you put in a baby's hand usually ends up poking them in eye so you just can't give them anything long or with a blunt end (obviously).  Thankfully the ring avoids this problem and is really easy for the baby to work out how to get it into his mouth i.e. it doesn't have to be the right way round or held in a certain way.

Something else that | have started to do is to tie a piece of muslin to the ring with a knot.  I do this because for some reason that knot is also irresistible to Henry and he loves it when the cloth goes over his face too!

  1. What kind of rings did you use? I also noticed a ring with small jingle bells. Did you make that as well?
