Teething Tips and Tricks
Let me start by saying I am NOT a pedestrian. These are just tips I have learned on my path of motherhood.
I have an one year old and she currently has three teeth growing in all at once! She is moody and not to mention hot with all this summer heat! While there are several teething toys you can buy the truth is that some of us mothers just cant afford them. So here are cheap at home remedies that i use and seem to really help!
1) Putting a wet wash cloth in the freezer
As you all know teething babies love to put anything and everything in their mouth. This just a great way to help cool them off and relax those gums!
2) Frozen Fruit
I like to put my daughter in her high chair with a handfull of mixed frozen fruit. I usually do this towards the end of the day so I can give her a bath right after. I love this idea because it teaches her how to feed herself and if I'm being honest; it gives her something to do as I make dinner/clean so that way she's not all over and I can still keep a close eye on her.
Now I understand all moms do things unique to them, but I love to share a popsicle with my sweet girl. It keeps our bond strong, we are cooling down, and the ice numbs her gums for a while.
Like I said I'm not an expert but i thought it would be nice to share some of my wisdome to first time mothers who are also just trying to figure this stuff out. If you have any other tips you'd like to share please feel free to do so in the comments section. Thank you!
