Teething is one of those events that can be relatively easy for some babies and absolutely agonizing for others. When my boys were younger, they tended to get three or four teeth at one time so teething was not all that pleasant for them. I tried a few different things to soothe their gums and help the teeth break through, but it was a bit of a stressful time for them and for me. My boys are done teething now but if you have a little one that’s drooling, fussing and showing other telltale signs of teething, don’t despair! Earth’s Best Organic has some great tips for making teething easier for mom and baby!
- Offer a hard snack: giving your baby a hard snack to gnaw on can be very soothing for their growing teeth. Earth’s Best Organic Toddler Biscuits are made from organic wheat and organic barley. Perfectly sized for little hands to hold, they are a good source of calcium and have an appealing texture for baby’s changing mouth. Firm rubber teething rings are also good choices.
- Make sure to dry excessive drool: drooling during teething can lead to rashes around the mouth and neck. Use bibs, change your baby’s shirt often and dry drool as often as possible to prevent rashing.
