why baby teethers are so good

why baby teethers are so good

Indeed, baby teethers serve an essential role in soothing infants during the teething process, which can be uncomfortable and painful for them. When selecting baby teethers, it's crucial to consider factors like safety, material, and design. Here are some characteristics of good baby teethers:

  1. Safety: The teether should meet safety standards and be free from harmful chemicals. Look for products that are BPA-free, phthalate-free, PVC-free, and lead-free. It should also be durable and designed to minimize the risk of choking hazards.

  2. Material: Opt for teethers made from safe materials such as food-grade silicone, natural rubber, or untreated wood. These materials are non-toxic and gentle on a baby's gums. Silicone and rubber teethers are often easy to clean and can be chilled for additional soothing relief.

  3. Texture: A good teether should have different textures to provide various sensations for babies' gums. Some babies prefer softer textures, while others may enjoy firmer ones. Textured surfaces can help massage sore gums and provide comfort during teething.

  4. Design: Choose teethers with designs that are easy for babies to grasp and hold onto. Shapes like rings, keys, or animal figures with multiple gripping points are popular choices. Teethers with built-in handles or loops are convenient for attaching to pacifier clips or stroller straps.

  5. Multi-functional: Some baby teethers come with additional features, such as built-in rattles, crinkly fabrics, or sensory elements like bright colors and patterns. These extra features can engage babies' senses and provide entertainment while soothing their gums.

  6. Ease of Cleaning: Look for teethers that are easy to clean and maintain hygiene standards. Dishwasher-safe or boilable teethers can simplify the cleaning process and ensure that the teether remains free from bacteria and germs.

  7. Recommendations: Consider recommendations from pediatricians, other parents, or trusted baby product reviews when selecting a teether. Feedback from those who have used the product can provide valuable insights into its effectiveness and safety.

Ultimately, the best baby teether is one that soothes your baby's teething discomfort effectively while prioritizing safety and quality. By considering these factors, you can find a teether that both you and your baby will love.

  1. Environmental impact: Cotton toys are generally considered more environmentally friendly than plastic toys. Cotton is a natural, biodegradable material, whereas plastic is derived from petroleum and often takes hundreds of years to break down. By opting for cotton toys, you can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.

  2. Safety: Cotton toys are often perceived as safer than plastic toys, especially for young children who may put toys in their mouths. Plastic toys can contain harmful chemicals such as phthalates and BPA, which have been linked to various health issues. Cotton toys, on the other hand, are free from these chemicals and pose fewer risks to children's health.

  3. Durability: While plastic toys are typically more durable than cotton toys, cotton toys can still be quite durable if they are well-made and properly cared for. Additionally, cotton toys can often be machine washed, making them easier to clean and maintain than plastic toys, which may require special cleaning methods to avoid damage.

  4. Sensory experiences: Cotton toys offer a different sensory experience compared to plastic toys. They are often softer and more tactile, which can be beneficial for children's sensory development. Cotton toys can also come in a variety of textures and colors, providing opportunities for sensory exploration and stimulation.

  5. Supporting local artisans: Many cotton toys are handmade by local artisans, which can provide economic support to communities and contribute to the preservation of traditional crafts. By purchasing cotton toys, you can support small businesses and help sustain traditional craftsmanship practices.

Overall, the choice between cotton toys and plastic toys ultimately depends on individual preferences and priorities. However, for those concerned about environmental impact, safety, and supporting local communities, cotton toys may be the preferred option.

 Cotton is a natural fiber that is grown from the cotton plant, scientifically known as Gossypium. It has been cultivated for thousands of years and is one of the most widely used fibers in the world. Here are some key points about cotton:

  1. Cotton Plant: Cotton plants are native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world. They thrive in warm climates with adequate rainfall. The plant produces white, fluffy fibers around its seeds, which are harvested to make cotton fabric.

  2. Fiber Properties: Cotton fibers are known for their softness, breathability, and absorbency. They are comfortable to wear and suitable for a wide range of clothing and textile products. Cotton fibers are also versatile and can be spun into various yarns for different applications.

  3. Cotton Cultivation: Cotton is primarily grown as an annual crop. It requires well-drained soil, plenty of sunlight, and a frost-free growing season. The cultivation process involves planting seeds, managing pests and diseases, and harvesting the mature cotton bolls.

  4. Types of Cotton: There are several species of cotton plants, each producing fibers with different qualities. The most commonly cultivated species include Gossypium hirsutum (upland cotton), Gossypium barbadense (Pima cotton or Egyptian cotton), and Gossypium herbaceum (African cotton). Each type has its own characteristics and is used for various purposes.

  5. Uses: Cotton is used in a wide range of products, including clothing, bedding, towels, and textiles. It is also used in non-textile applications such as medical supplies, paper products, and oil extraction. Cottonseed, a byproduct of cotton production, is used to produce cottonseed oil for cooking and other purposes.

  6. Environmental Impact: While cotton is a natural and renewable resource, conventional cotton farming can have significant environmental impacts. It often requires large amounts of water and chemical pesticides and fertilizers, leading to water pollution, soil degradation, and biodiversity loss. However, there are efforts to promote sustainable cotton farming practices, such as organic and Fair Trade certifications, to mitigate these impacts.

Overall, cotton is a valuable natural fiber with diverse applications and cultural significance worldwide. Efforts to promote sustainable practices in cotton farming are crucial for reducing its environmental footprint and ensuring its long-term viability as a resource.

HELLO WORLD! Joyfully introducing Zubels New Nursery Knit Dolls - Petit Ami & Zubels    All Baby!

HELLO WORLD! Joyfully introducing Zubels New Nursery Knit Dolls

IT'S FINALLY HERE...Our new collection of Zubels Nursery Knit Dolls! 

We are so excited to finally introduce this very special line of dolls that are waiting to be taken home and become your baby's new companion through infancy. 

All of our dolls are handmade with love by talented artisans in the Philippines. They are made with 100% Cotton knit ultra soft yarns and we use eco-friendly dyes because your little one's safety is our number one priority. 

This collection is particularly special to me, as it was my first collaboration as a designer with my fellow designer here at Zubels. The inspiration for this collection was mainly a soft pastel color palette that represents the softness and "baby aesthetic" of our Petit Ami line. We wanted to create a collection of baby knit dolls that were more exquisite and that would become the best gift for a newborn. Through this process, we wanted to emphasize the very special stage of infancy. We know that this stage is very short and special and that is why we wanted to create a collection as an homage to newborns. 


Here at Renzo Company we have our toys tested and graded safe for ages 0+. They are all tested and pass the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission Standards. Our toys are designed with you in mind, which also brings me to the point that they wash beautifully! And yes, in the machine, not by hand. Well, by hand if you’d like.

Please check the entire collection on our website!

Why Organic Cotton is the BEST Choice for Baby Clothes and Blankets! - Petit Ami & Zubels    All Baby!

Why Organic Cotton is the BEST Choice for Baby Clothes and Blankets!

Your baby is precious which is why you only want to give them the best in life! We worry about what they eat, where they run too, but should we worry about what their skin touches? 

Babies Skin is very delicate and sensitive, especially as a newborn! Which is why it is so important to be selective of what clothes, blankets and toys you give your little one.

So Why Organic Cotton?

Its Safe and Non Toxic.

Cotton is from Nature, which makes it a great choice for babies clothes. Here at Petit Ami & Zubels we use only the highest quality Organic Cottons for our clothes and Toys. 

It is extremely important for babies to wear clothing and have blankets that are chemical free. This is because baby skin is 5x thinner, more absorbent and more sensitive than adult skin.

We make sure we use Earth Friendly Non-Toxic dyes on all of our items. Good for Baby and Earth. ❤️

Its Hypoallergenic.

Without harsh chemicals and processing Organic Cotton is naturally very soft and antimicrobial. This is important for babies skin and leaves a less likely chance for your baby to develop dermatitis, eczema and allergies. 

Conventional Cotton contains Chemical Residues that your baby will inhale as they wear it. By choosing organic, you can rest easy knowing your babies lungs are safe from any harsh chemicals and toxins. 

Its Soft and More Comfortable.

Cotton is Naturally Very Soft, But when it is processed and doused in chemicals it becomes harsh and scratchy. 

By Choosing Organic Cotton you are ensuring your baby will be wrapped in comfortable and cozy clothing that will let them rest easy. 


Its Better for the Earth.

Conventional Cotton uses TONS of Water to grow and process. It also uses harsh chemicals and pesticides that damage the earth and end up in the fibers of the cloth. 

Organic Cotton is much much better for the Earth. It uses no chemicals and most farmers use recycled rainwater while farming. 

Here at Petit Ami & Zubels we also use Non-Toxic Dyes that are Environmentally Friendly and Baby Safe.

Its Less Work for You!

Organic Cotton lasts a very long time when taken care of. It is machine washable and very easy to clean. Instead of fading or getting disheveled, Organic Cotton actually can get softer over each wash. 


Organic Cotton is the best choice for your Baby, the Earth and You! Which is why we are extremely proud to use it!
