Handling and safety
All my products undergo rigorous testing and quality checks before shipping. The toys are well-built, and safe for children, however I still recommend checking the product thoroughly when you receive it, as it might suffer damage during shipping.
Before giving it to your child please make sure that all the parts are well secured and nothing is broken. A broken toy can be dangerous!
Please don't leave the child alone with the toy for prolonged periods of time.
Materials and care
All the nihama teething toys and nursing necklaces are made of wood and natural yarns. Normally I use 100% baby cotton, organic or eco-friendly, but in some cases organic cotton yarns with wild silk and kapok are used too.
For smoothness and shine you can polish the wooden parts (beads and rings) with any edible natural oil - for example, olive, sesame, cornflower, or any other to your liking. Just sprinkle a few drops of oil on the wood, rub it in with your fingers, and let it dry for an hour.
You can wash your items with warm water and soap and air-dry afterwards. Don't forget that your baby will bite it - so make sure to use organic or baby-friendly non-allergenic washing liquid.
