My little guy is wanting to chew on things and I'm hoping to find something natural and completely safe for him to chew on.  Any recommendations and places to get them?

Your mileage may very - but I know there are natural rubber pacifiers out there, so this might work.  I filled up pacifiers with water and froze them for my daughter.  Worked like a charm, and I felt good that they were just filled with water, and I could reuse them over and over.  You have to watch for signs of cracking when those teeth break through so they don't chew them to bits, but that was pretty easy as they are small and warm/out of ice pretty fast.

Look for Sophie the Giraffe!  She is the ideal chew toy. Love Sophie.

You might have to try a few different things before you find your baby's favorite.  My son loves his Sophie, like the PP.  He also likes the organic Teething Bonbon:  http://www.urthchild.com/toys-baby---toddler-toys.html.  You can wet and freeze the organic cotton knots for him to chew on.  Good luck!!!
