Teething is a difficult and painful process for most babies and can leave both baby and mum exhausted. It is important for parents to make teething as easy and painless as possible by helping them through the teething developmental phase.  Sore gums and flushed cheeks are the primary symptoms of teething, and babies will often chew on anything they can get their hands on to relieve the discomfort, which is why it is important it is to give teething tots something to chew and suck on during their teething troubles.
