Teething pain doesn’t sleep, and neither will bub! We don’t blame them either, for anyone who has ever suffered a toothache, you know what we are talking about. The pressure of those little teeth pushing through is enough to wake your baby at all hours of the night. Sometimes all we can do is to be there with them, giving cuddles and comfort whether the pain hits day or night.Night time teething not only affects bub routines and behaviours, but mum and dad also suffer trying to function on sleepless nights.

Creative exploration is an ongoing process from the minute your little one is born. First through observation, and now they are beginning to put what they are learning into practice. Now at a stage of purposefully picking up toys, banging them, dropping them and chewing on them and really spending time examining the items in front of them, determining the relationship they have with the item and its purpose.
