I just bought these for my teething son! I use them to put in the refrigerator after dousing them with water so that he can chew and teeth on a cool cloth. My son loves to chew and teeth on cloths so I figured a safe option would be a wash cloth. Word to the wise -- make sure you wash and dry them FIRST before giving them to baby because they do have a little lint that could be dangerous to baby. I also use some of them in the bath tub and they are great for washing. They are super soft too!
