Three Natural Ways to Soothe a Teething Baby
Teething can be an uncomfortable season for any babe. As your babe’s teeth begin to come in, you may notice some tell-tale signs, such as fussing, drooling, trouble sleeping, and the desire to chew on anything, and everything within their grasp. Teething is an inevitable part of growing up, and while it is not the most enjoyable part, it’s only temporary. Here are three natural ways to help soothe your teething baby.
It’s important to remember that teethers are objects your babe will be chewing on. That’s why natural teethers are a great option! Unlike other teethers on the market, natural teethers are made from natural, untreated materials, and often do not include harmful chemicals, dyes, and toxins. When choosing a teether, make sure to look closely at the materials used and avoid teethers that include synthetic ingredients.
At Babe Basics, all of our natural teethers are handmade and designed with your babe’s safety in mind. All of our designs are double knotted, for extra durability, and include soothe edges to maximize safety. Our teethers are made using natural materials, such as beech wood, a naturally splinter-free material that has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, and food-grade silicone that is FDA approved, BPA-free, PVC-free, Phthalate-free, latex-free, lead-free, petroleum-free, and non-toxic.
If you’ve introduced fruit into your little one’s diet, frozen fruit can be a great way to help soothe your babe’s teething pain. The cold fruit can help to numb their gums, while also providing them with some additional nutrition. Select fruits that can easily be chewed, such bananas, strawberries, watermelon, etc. Make sure to check with your doctor before introducing solid foods, and keep a close eye on how your babe responds to each new fruit.
Summer is the perfect season for popsicles! If your babe is starting to teethe, try making popsicles using breast milk or formula. As your little one begins to teethe, you may notice a drop in their appetite. Teething pain and discomfort may cause them to consume fewer calories. Frozen breast milk or formula popsicles are a great way to help soothe their pain and provide them with the added benefit of extra nutrients.
