A few weeks ago Jenny posted about her top 5 favorite things for kids. I (Brooke) then did a follow up post the next week with my top 5 baby items. Then, recently my one year old started to get her molars and was in a lot of pain from teething. I did one of my favorite things to do as the admin of our facebook page and asked all of our fans what their favorite teething remedies are. I thought I would share the top 5 answers as a blog post so that when others are going through the same thing as me, they will also have access to the expertise of our fans (who are amazing parents with great advice)! Please keep in mind that this is advice from other parents and not medical advice. Please consult your doctor with any questions about remedies and medications.
1) Amber Necklaces & Anklets
Many people swear by these. M has an anklet, I don’t know if it was one of the things that helped or not, but it sure looked cute on her. It is said that baltic amber has natural healing powers.
2) Teething Tablets
Teething tablets are a homeopathic remedy for teething. They were recalled when M first started teething, so I never tried them. But, after many processes and tests with the FDA they are back and claiming to be completely safe. Many people recommend these as the only thing that got them through the worst teething spells with the baby.
3) Frozen Wash Cloth
The frozen wash cloth will stand the test of time as a great teething remedy. It will occupy their mouths by giving them something to chew on and will numb the pain. Just make sure that the cloth is clean.
Camilia is a safe and natural homeopathic option for teething relief for children age 1 and up. I had never heard of it until it was suggested on our facebook page. I think I may order some now!
5) Infant Motrin/Ibuprophen
Infant Motrin is an over the counter medicine for fevers and pain relief. It is a great choice over Infant Tylenol because it seems to be stronger and lasts longer with each dose.
There you have it. These were the top 5 recommendations from Taylor Joelle fans for baby’s teething pain. 🙂
