In full disclaimer, I can honestly say neither my wife nor myself had childhood dreams of inventing a baby teether but having kids of your own can do funny things to the course of one's life...and here we are.
Our first child was a sweet little girl who had a terrible case of colic. After making it through that period my wife and I were convinced we had seen the worst of her crying - until she began teething. One day during a particularly cranky episode I looked at my teething baby daughter and saw she was surrounded by a slew of plastic teething gizmos and a rubber giraffe yet she was uninterested in all of them and still wailing from the pain and discomfort. That's when I said to myself: "There's got to be a better way." After much thought and consideration it occurred to me that the ice cream cone is truly nature's perfect teether design. With that inspiration we set out to make SweeTooth a reality where nature meets nurture with a sprinkling of fun.
Of course more important than fun is safety and that is why we insisted on manufacturing SweeTooth in the United States using only premium medical and food grade silicone rubber. We know there are a plethora of baby teethers on the market, many available at a fraction of the price, but in most cases they are made overseas from plastic or another inferior material.
SweeTooth is proud to be a family owned and operated business that does all of its manufacturing in the United States.
Sprouting teeth is a rite of passage and it can be a very stressful period for both baby and parents alike. While there is no magic cure for teething pain and discomfort it's our hope that SweeTooth will make the experience a little more pleasant for everyone.
