When your little one is teething, they can be in a lot of pain and it is important to find out something that will help provide them with some relief. Providing comfort for teething is so important so I have come up with my top tips for teething babies to share with you.
Natural remedies – Do your research, as many parents do and find a natural remedy or pain reliever that can help ease some of the pain and inflammation associated with teething and sore gums.
A rolled up frozen washcloth – This was my “go to” teether when my kids were babies. They loved the cold feeling on their gums and I could have MANY prepared and ready to go whenever one was needed. I stored the rolled up frozen, wet cloths in a glass container with a snap on lid.
A mesh feeding bag with frozen fruit – Fill one of these self-feeders with any type of frozen fruit or veggie that your little one likes. Not only will they be provided with some comfort from the cold sensation, but they will be able to chew AND receive nutrition all at once.
Gum massage – Some little ones enjoy getting their gums massaged. Be sure to have very short finger nails and to wash your hands well before putting your fingers in your little one’s mouth.
Teething jewelry for mom – There are many great options for teething jewelry that Mom can wear. This is another fantastic option as they won’t get lost.
A variety of teethers – Provide your little one with some options as every type of teether has its benefits. My new favourite one, that I feel is a must have is called the Munch Mitt.
This is a very practical teether that you are sure to not misplace or lose, as it fits right onto baby’s hand, providing them with a wonderful chewing experience that will not frustrate them.
