A few teething tips for parents looking for relief for their little ones.
A Darling Foot massage.
Studies in reflexology identified connections between toes and the head and teeth.
Gently massage babies foot while focusing on the toes to provide some comfort.
Cold purees in the fridge prior to feeding can feel soothing and encourage baby to eat when they don’t feel so great. Even cool applesauce and yogurt is great for babies that prefer a softer texture.
Freeze a wet, muslin.
Wring it dry, and place it in the freezer before giving it to baby. This will offer relief as baby gnaws on it.
Freeze a whole banana for a sweet treat to soothe your little one’s gums.
Keep baby’s face dry.
Wiping the waterfalls of drool that comes with teething from your baby’s mouth, chin, and cheeks helps prevent skin irritation, which can add to baby’s discomfort during teething.
Rotate Teethers in the freezer.
Give teethers a quick hand washing and rotate 1 or 2 between the freezer for some cool relief for baby. Our Teethers come in sets of 2.
A few crowd sourced tips:
Use. Dr. Browns refillable food pouch to fill with berries for gnawing.
Camilia drops. A homeopathic remedy that helps baby’s gums.

Happy Mother’s Day!
The day is getting so close and we hope your Mother’s Day weekend is filled with lots of love and appreciation. You deserve it! Moms are amazing and we celebrate that every day.
So many of you told us on our Instagram that you’d love to extra sleep, quiet time, and a little extra time to pamper yourself. Breakfast in bed sounds like a great way to start the day to us! Our Garden Party In A Box is the perfect, and easy addition to making it a fun brunch!
While we fully plan to relax and celebrate our own moms and loved ones who are closest to us, we made this fun little scone recipe ahead of time too. If you like to bake with your kids, this one is simple and you don’t even have to remember to soften butter.
Lately, I’ve loved taking my little one on a lunch date and I thought a tea time or picnic with these yummy scones would be something she would love! Print the recipe here.
However you celebrate, we hope you enjoy your day and weekend! Thinking of the mamas-to-be out there who are waiting on their baby, too.

Happy Earth Day! I’m so glad we get to celebrate this wonderful place we live on called the Earth! If there is anything I’ve learned from this last year, it’s that every day I’m on it is a gift!
In the spirit of appreciating our awesome planet, we are talking about Earth in our school time. And to create something together that will both recycle some old garbage, as well as create new plant life, we are making plantable SEED CARDS!!! If you have never made a seed card, it’s the most fun ever! Send a card to a friend and they can plant it! How cool is that? Here is how you do it.
Gather Scrap Paper
Blend your paper with a little bit of water.
Strain excess water and add seeds in to your paper mixture.
Smush it onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet and let it dry.
Cut out shapes or use cookie cutters before hand and let it dry in the cookie cutter. We traced and cut our shapes out of our paper.
