My 5 Go To Natural Teething Remedies

PIN IT!As most of you reading this right now know, teething babies are no fun for anyone. They’re cranky, may have a slight fever, diarrhea, and their poor little gums just throb. There are lots of options out there that you can offer your little ones but slowly more natural remedies are taking over as the best option for relief. As a natural parenting household, I decided to round up some of our go-to natural teething remedies that will hopefully find you and your little ones some relief.

Teething Tablets

This one has always been one of my first go to options. Teething tablets can be given at any age and since Baby M started teething at 3 months, they were very needed! Humphrey’s tablets are all natural and dissolve in seconds once placed in your little one’s mouth so no worries on choking. Baby M has always enjoyed the taste of them as well which was also helpful!

Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces

When Little E was a teething baby, baltic amber teething necklaces weren’t known to me so we never had the chance to use them. This time around I knew I wanted to give them a try and see what all the hype was about. For those of you who don’t know, your little one’s body heat releases the succinic acid in the amber necklace which has anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties. I ordered a Baltic Amber teething necklace by Silver Baby Spoons in cognac to try and fell in love. I was slightly skeptical as to how well the necklace would work but as Baby M wore it, his teething pain significantly decreased.

Teething Mesh Pacifiers

These pacifiers can really be a hit or miss depending on your baby however they are great for two different reasons. First off, they allow your little ones to practice chewing new foods like bananas and secondly, you can put a couple ice cubes in them for teething. Little E used these for trying new foods but Baby M loved these for the ice and teething. Not to mention, you can grab two for about $7 which is fairly cheap.

Vulli Teethers

Though I do believe Vulli teethers like Sophie the Giraffe, are overpriced, they are rather cute. These teethers come in several sizes now and are not only 100% natural rubber but they are also made with food paint which makes them a great teething option.

Wash Cloths

Last but not least, washcloths. I know, something so simple and easy but they really do work. Just wet any washcloth you have and hand it to your little one to suck, bite, and pull on for relief. It’s always the simple things that seem to keep their interests most!

Products may have been received in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    What great natural products to highlight today! I must admit, I had never head of these teething products! I will be sharing your blog post with friends who have children with teething products! I always think it is best to purchase products that are as natural as can be!

    It’s sad that I don’t remember what I used for my kids I want to say I had a teething ring and it was shaped like keys. I like the wash cloth idea though my kids loved to play with them and I never thought to use them for teething. Great list!

    Natural is the way to go with small children,
    Most if not all my friends love using the amber necklace and swear on it.
    Some use the mesh pacifier to put in fruit and have had postive results.
    I’ll be sure to pass this on to some new mommys

    I have never heard of the Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces, so this is a new one for me. I like that the necklace is in color which I know its somethings that babies grab for when teething. I will have to buy one and have one of my God children try it, to see how it works. Thank you for sharing.

    I love how many new natural products are out for kids these days. These all sound like amazing products for kids. The Teething Mesh Pacifiers are a great way to help kids with starting to eat foods and comfort teething pain.

    Natural is the best, especially for the little ones. I wish we had these natural products when my kids were babies. I didn’t want to buy the usual toys for teething, so I only used a damp towel to soothe my kids’ gums.

    My daughter was the best sleeper until she started teething and then neither one of us got much sleep for a while. I always feel for parents when they say their children are teething so I’m sure this post will be invaluable to many of them.

    Teething is such a hard time. Finding the right solutions to help your baby with teething is so helpful. I’ve never heard of the Vulli teethers but they sound awesome! If all else fails, lots of snuggles and love.

    My neighbour had her first baby in April and I’m surprised to hear that he’s teething already. I feel like he was only born yesterday. Going to send this blog post link to her for her to check out (because I’m not a Mom yet… I don’t need the tips) but she’s a NEW mom and I know she’d appreciate that you took the time to write this up. I do know that she has that Sophie the Giraffe for the little fella. So she knows a bit, so far!

    Though I do not have experience using the amber necklace… I work with children who use it and it seems to work very well for them. It is essential to have natural solutions especially at such a young age! Thanks so much for sharing this 🙂
