Do you have a teething baby? Have they been suddenly they're a little fussy, extra drooly, and gnawing on their hands a lot?
Here are a few teething tips for baby to help you while you wait for their new teeth to arrive.
Make baby comfortable with a 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. Use your favorite lotion of baby oil to avoid pulling on the skin.
Soothe sore teething gums with cool foods.
Cold purees in the fridge prior to feeding can feel soothing and encourage baby to eat when they don’t feel so great. Cool applesauce and yogurt is great for babies that prefer a softer texture over gnawing on something frozen.
Freeze a wet muslin for a cold alternative to food.
Wring it dry, and place it in the freezer before giving it to baby. This will offer relief as baby gnaws on it.
Rotate Teethers in the freezer.
Give teethers a quick hand washing and rotate one or two between the freezer for some cool relief for baby.
