Advantages of a teething ring

A teething ring is the right size for those little fingers and is light and tactile. Another advantage of these is that babies are learning motor skills "by this we mean a series of actions such as running, walking, using an object such as a pencil etc. These movements are based upon hand-eye co-ordination. So using a teething ring will enable the baby to become familiar with repetitive actions as well as learning to handle an object. What a ring does is to ease any discomfort caused by the eruption of the teeth. During teething the milk teeth certainly make their presence known as they push their way through the gums. This pressure is painful but can be reduced by chewing on a hard object, for example a teething ring. This brings instant relief. Plus it gives the mouth a good workout as well. Chewing helps to strengthen the muscles of the mouth and jaw which is useful when the baby progresses to solid foods. There are a wide range of teething rings to choose from so it comes down to a matter of personal choice. The most popular teething ring is made of rubber and is also the cheapest as well.
