Premium-grade silicone, i.e., 100 percent medical- or food-grade silicone is particularly important for water-filled teethers since these are meant to be extra-soft for very young, sensitive gums. However, water can leak from the unit if the material doesn’t hold up time and time again. That’s why we made sure to only select teething toys made from the highest-grade materials. The combination of premium materials and sound manufacturing techniques is the key to making safe, effective products for all your baby’s teething needs.
