I’m a happy teether with my amber teething necklace!
When Trinity was teething for the 1st time so was I. My wicked wisdom teeth decided to rear their evil heads while my baby girls central incisor’s were poking through her bottom gums. She took it like a champ! Mom on the other hand curled up on the couch and thought she was going to DIE! I continuously chewed on Gummy Bears (which was a surprisingly effective method for dealing with the pain) until I could get into the oral surgeon to have my teeth removed.
Number 1 = Trinity; Number 5= Mommy (only worse! there should be a number 6 wisdom teeth you think you will die and at the worst point wish it were so!)
For me it was chewy Gummy Bears that were my saving grace but you can’t give a baby candy to ease the pain. There are a million options available but here is what I have found works (and what didn’t).
They make both baby and mommy ones. The amber is a great natural pain reliever for babies to wear when teething just don’t let them nap or sleep with them on. Ryder’s is a necklace from The Art of Cure but there are many vendors available. For moms they have tons of options also. Most mother teething jewelry is silicon or rubber but some are knit, wood or fabric. Chewbeads, Jellystone, and Uggla Land on etsy are some of my favorite brands. I also adore Mommy Necklaces but as far as helping with teething my babies didn’t love them for that.
I have spent a fortune on toys that are supposed to help with teething but neither of my kids like to chew on them. I have friends that sware by Sophie the giraffe made by a French company most parents are aware of, I also tried Lela the deer from a German company neither of which interested my kiddos.
I thought maybe imitation food would work since Ryder loves to eat anything (including paper and cardboard!). I purchased jellystone’s candy bar teether and appetheethers broccoli teether. He doesn’t love either.
Next I tried a paci type teether. Ryder likes his Nuks so this went a little better but only when he is sleepy does he use it more than a minute. Here is the one I got him KidGear Teethifier:
Trinity loved her RaZbaby paci but Ryder wasn’t as big of a fan. I think the mouth shape is the difference between the 2 kids because Trin liked MAM pacifiers which are shaped more like the RaZbaby teether and Ryder likes Nuk brand pacifiers.
Last I thought maybe something with flavor would do the trick. I couldn’t find any pacifier or teething toys with flavor but I did find some that had a smell. I went with the Vulli Vanilla teether (from the makers of Sophie). They smell AMAZING but didn’t interest Ryder. 😦
Biscuits, Popsicles and Food Items~
I found a great idea for a popsicle teething treats on Momdot.com Ryder actually loves:) Here it is:
All you need is a silicon pan. Any shape will probably do and I own a heart one. Here are some Silicone Pans On Amazon .
I added my squeezable pouches in (I layered two flavors here):
Put the pan into the freezer till they were solid ( this took a few hours, but will ultimately depend on how much food you layer) and then I popped them out. They come out super easy!
Now another way to do this would be to add little Popsicle stick handles in them or even use a thin apple slice (or carrot, celery, etc) as a handle so your child can pick it up without getting their fingers cold.
These frozen treats are a great alternative to grocery bought ice cream and you can control the fruit or vegis and it tastes just as good! And if you have a pantry full of left over baby food, it helps clear that up as well.
Another BRILLIANT idea I ran across was this form howdoesshe.com:
