The sleepless nights, endless drool, & fussiness can drive us crazy. A teething baby means you don’t get a good nights rest for a while. With each of our kids it has been a different experience.
So what have I found works? There seems to be a million and one products and remedies for teething, everyone gives you different advice. I think I tried just about everything and have found that some days some things work and others call for alternative measures. Although I might try new things there are a few products that I highly recommend you have to ease your baby’s discomfort and hopefully give you a little piece of mind.
Amber Teething Necklace
I was a little skeptical at first about whether or not these amber necklaces actually worked. The way an amber necklace works is by releasing analgesic oils triggered by your baby’s body heat. These oils are them absorbed by your baby’s skin and causes relief to your baby’s swollen and sore gums. It seems to be the natural remedy everyone is talking about so we decided to give it a shot. We purchased this Powell Owl’s Baltic Amber necklace on Amazon after much research and we noticed she was less fussy than before. For safety reasons put around the ankle at night time.
Yes of course you can use regular bibs for your baby. BUT-have you seen the amount of drool a teething baby has lately? It is A LOT! All my kids have gone through about 5-6 bibs per day because they were constantly getting soaked. We loved thick bandana bibs like those from Goobie Baby Their bibs are 4 layered which means they soak up all the drool better than anything else I have ever owned. The bibs are waterproof so there is no having to constantly change a bib or it soaking through to your precious outfits.
There is such a huge selection in the teething toys out there. We love ones that you can throw in the freezer, they offer extra relief when they have tough days. Although most of the teethers end up frozen all around we found the Mam Mini Cooler Teether to be our favorite because it has a handle that does not freeze. With that handle your little ones hands won’t end up ice cold.
Not for baby to wear Mamma Bears-for you! I loved them! This is probably one of my favorite product of all time. Goobie Baby not only makes amazing teething bibs, they actually specialize in 100% Baby Safe Silicone Necklace for you to wear! It is like having something for your baby to teeth on you at all times.
I hope these help!
