Teethers/toys without wooden parts:
dishwasher safe and freezer friendly. Do not hot water sterilize products that are strung together as extreme hot water will compromise the integrity of the cording. Silicone solid products can be sterilized.
Teethers/toys with wooden parts:
handwash with soapy warm water on a cloth and air dry. Do not submerge wooden parts in water as overtime they can become rough with repeated exposure to water. We recommend treating your wood parts with a food grade oil of your choice (olive, coconut, etc) every 5-8 washes or as desired. Treating the wood will prevent water from seeping into the pours and keep the teether feeling newer longer.
It is important to note that is is safe for your baby to teeth on wood. Hardwood used is natural and a desirable surface for babies to bite down on. Hard surfaces help budding teeth erupt through the gums whereas silicone or soft surfaces help soothe and massage achy gums. Both are mutually beneficial in the teething process.
