Teething Remedies You Need To Know.

We all forget how much pain our teeth cause us when it’s over. I forgot how I’d be in agony over my braces being tightened or further back to when a new tooth would emerge.

Teething sucks, for both baby/toddler and parents. Luckily (or unluckily) my toddler seems to have teeth that want to grow in quickly. We’ve been a dealing with a drool monster since 4 months. First teeth coming in at around 6 months and now at 14 months he’s got 8 teeth and more coming in. I’m in a due date Facebook group so I’ve seen different babies going through teething and we all want to know the same thing: How do we make it better?

I asked my group what their favorite tried and true remedy for teething is and here’s a list. I’m also adding my own tips as well!

What works for me:

  • Teethers: that sounds simple enough. You should always look into getting any kind of teething toys for your baby. When they’re little I found my kiddo enjoying the soft silicon toys more than the hard plastic teethers. Eventually he moved on to the harder things as he got more teeth.

*Note: Someone mentioned that the teething gels aren’t FDA approved for babies, so please ask a pediatrician before using.

What other moms have said:

  • Cut up stalks of celery sticks kept in water. Baby loves gnawing on it when they’re hurting.

Teething is inevitable part of growing up! So hopefully these tips and tricks help you and your little one!
