Our beloved teether lovie combines the sensory qualities of hard and soft. Young graspers enjoy holding the wooden ring and smooshing the soft gauze cloth in their hands. When baby begins teething, the wooden ring provides a soothing, hard-but-not-too-hard, natural surface for biting. As your child grows, the small square unties from the wooden ring to become a cloth napkin or favorite little lovie.
Our teething ring is made in the U.S. specifically for us from maple wood grown and milled in the U.S. We rub it with a mixture of 100% organic jojoba oil and domestic organic beeswax.

We recommend re-oiling your teething ring as needed. You can add natural wood rub to your cart here.
* The crinkled state of gauze is achieved with washing and drying. The weave of the fabric appears flat prior to washing. It crinkles up with laundering, and may become more textured via successive launderings--achieving the appearance you see in our product photos. (We include this information on an insert that comes with the product.)
