Does anyone know of teething rings that you can freeze? All the ones I've seen say not to freeze.

I know this post is way after the dates of the other posts but i was told that the reason why you are not supposed to freeze most teething toys is because they can burst this way and leak toxins into your baby's mouth.

I tried just getting a washclothe really wet and damp and then would freeze it and let my son suck on that. It works when there teething you could probably use juice instead of water too and just let your baby sit in a chair or at the table because it does get messy.

I think they all say not to freeze but I went ahead and frooze all of my teething rings (different brands) and never had a problem with them. I tried the frozen cloth but my daughter didnt like it and it didnt last as long as the frozen ring.

the reason they cannot b frozen is because a frozen ring can cause frostbite damage to babies gums. like when u was a kid and u got ur lips stuck on ice in the fridge.

When my daughter was teething, I would soak a washcloth in cold water, roll it up and freeze it. She would chew on that for some comfort.

I always kept a baby sock with an ice cube in the freezer. When it was time to give to my daughter, I ran it under cold water, handed it to her, and she would safely suck away on it.

If you have a Target near you, that's where I found mine. It's made by Bright Stars and on the front of the packaging near the top is says "safe for freezing" and my little one loves it!

Frozen fruit is a good alternative. I wrap it in muslin cloth to prevent it going all over the place and to prevent them choking. Even cold watermelon in a muslin cloth works well as the juice soaks through and they really enjoy the taste. Be preapred for a mess with watermelon though!

I have done frozen fruit which he seems to really enjoy :) I just thought that maybe there are some kind of teethers that you could freeze. I think that he would really enjoy that! Overall he seems to be going pretty well with the teething phase :) I think that I've got myself an angel :) I'm very blessed! Thanks for all your thoughts :) Take care!

I've tried the frozen wash cloth and he does not like it. I put the teething rings in the fridge but it's not the same a freezing them. I've never heard of a baby getting frost bite. I don't think that my son would keep it in his mouth long enough to get frost bite....
