“A teething baby is so much fun. Said no one ever.”- Anonymous
Having restless days and nights with baby teething issues – crankiness, crying, irritated?
Little babies may develop their first teeth with no problems at all, but it could be a long and painful process. They need lots of cuddles! All parents wish they could take the pain away, and for this, they can seriously do anything!
Don’t worry, here comes a wonderful healthy home remedy- “Momsicles -Breastmilk Popsicles”. They are easy to make, and most babies love them. You can use the breast milk or even baby formula for making these mom-popsicles. Trust me, it soothes a lot and also a healthy option. Here is the link on pumping and storage of breast milk:
Following are the way I use for making these momsicles:
- Mesh teether: This teether is used for cold fruits when baby starts solids it helps in making gums stronger. It is good for teething too. This is a good alternative, if you don’t have a tiny little mold. You can fill an ice-cube tray with breastmilk or formula and freeze. When the breastmilk is set, remove it from the tray and pop it in a mesh teether. Following is the link for the mesh teether, I use for my little princess and she loves chewing on it just as much as they love eating whatever I put inside.
- Cute popsicles: I pour the breastmilk and make these cute Popsicles. The molds I use
- Milk cubes: Freeze the milk in the freezing bags. I used the medela bags. Freeze and break in small chunks, put in the feeding bowls in and child can play. Its little messy but worth it.
4. Coconut Oil: I also do massaging of gums using few drops of organic coconut oil. It also soothes the gums and pain.
Note: You can also use formula or fresh fruits and freeze them. There are many other remedies too. This is great for keeping your baby entertained for a while. We can share more as we experience and proceed further with teething. Hope this helps!!!
