There’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is, Mothercare was going through a lot of financial losses over the past few years and announced to shut down 79 stores across the UK. The good news is, none of the stores across the UAE were affected by this financial crisis and the products from Mothercare are still widely available.

Baby teethers

Once the baby is around 3 months old, their teeth start developing and teethers are used to soothe babies’ gums. This allows the baby to get some comfort and relief as tender gums feel better when pressure is applied. Note that it is important to sterilize your baby’s teethers before handing it over to them even if it is between short intervals of time. These Water Filled Teethers from Mothercare give your little one something to chew on when their gums are sore or if they are teething. They come in a pack of 2 and are soft and textured. You can keep them refrigerated before giving them to your baby so that the chilled water-filled center aids in cooling sore teething gums.
