You can’t underestimate the power of a good teether – Alfie and Kitty were rarely without their Sophie the Giraffes. I am loving Squidge & Pip, two brand new sensory teething toys made in the UK. The brainchild of mama of two, Mary, the yellow and green silicone teethers (with no nasties) are designed to stimulate all baby’s senses, so have lots of raised bumps, grooves and texture to soothe sore gums, are easy to grip to improve motor skills and the cute dog shape and bright colours are visually appealing. The ring shape also means that they’re easy to attach to links or a strap so they won’t get lost when you’re out and about. Named after her children’s nicknames, Squidge is green and Pip a bright yellow and, from a practical perspective, they can be steam sterilised and popped in the fridge or freezer to offer additional relief. They come with a travel bag and unusually packaged in layers of corrugated cardboard, making them a fab gift, £20.
