As any parent who has found their tie, hair, fingers or necklace in a tiny mouth will tell you, babies will do anything to relieve teething pressure.
Instead of handing baby your dirty car keys or iPhone, wear the Oh Plah! bracelet.
French for "here you go," the modern, chunky cuff doubles as a teether that baby can safely mouth or bend, twist, roll, bite and play with whenever she feels that itch. Think of it as English for "crisis averted."
Easily cleaned with soap and water, the green-minded, medical-grade thermoplastic bracelet is non-toxic, bacteria resistant, and is completely free of lead, latex, PVC, BPA and phthalates. Moms can even use it as as nursing reminder, switching wrists to remember which side comes next.
Once baby's teeth are all in, Roundhouse Design Collaborative, the clever company behind the cuff, will pay to have your bracelet shipped back so it can be recycled into new products.
