The "Octo Teether" is a wooden teething ring designed with preemies and newborns in mind.
It is a spin off, more cost effective version of a crochet octopus that has the same terrific impact.
The spiraled tentacles are calming to preemies and newborns because they're reminded of their umbilical cord and floating in their mother's womb. The tentacles have been proven to prevent NICU babies from pulling on wires, cords, etc. while proving comfort and even raising oxygen levels!
Each octo teether is carefully handmade stitch by stitch. Once it's finished it measures approximately 6.5 inches from the top of the ring to the bottom of the tentacles and about 3.5 inches wide.
Made with 100% soft cotton yarn and a smooth wooden teething ring making it safe to wash and dry in a garment bag with hot water and tumble dry.
Once baby is home at please only let your baby play with the octo under adult supervision.
NICU guidelines vary from place to place, make sure your NICU will allow such "toys" in with baby.
