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.
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.
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.
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!
