I know honey isn't safe for my infant, so i'm wondering, is it ok for him to have a wooden teething toy with a beeswax polish on it?

In brief: Teething toy OK

Bees wax has no sugar.
Honey does and can cause caries.

In brief: Pacifier

I would not give the baby the wood pacifier with that varnish on it, but look for a ortho approved pacifier.
