A baby soother is also known as a comforter. It's made of soft fabric, usually plushy and fluffy with an adorable design on it that can be anything from your favorite animal to flowers or rainbows.
It's usually shaped like an animal with soft material on the outside designed to soothe a crying baby with the gentle touch of their favorite animal.
The inside is usually stuffed with a lightweight, hypoallergenic material to mimic the feel of being in their mother's womb.

Why do babies need soothers?
Babies sometimes become fussy or upset for various reasons. This can happen from being too hot, feeling hungry, and more. A soother is a type of toy that's usually shaped like an animal with soft material on the outside to help babies feel relaxed.
A baby's sense of touch is the first way they communicate with their environment, which means that having something soft to hold on to can be comforting.
