Teething help for Our 10 month old
Lily had a good week or so where her teeth were really bothering her. You could see all the little bumps in her mouth, swollen and pink. She was not a happy camper and chewed on anything she could find, even our legs and her own feet.
I had to look up ways to help her. Addison never really complained about her teeth and still to this day she keeps most things to herself. I'm basically a teething newbie over here researching my tushy off. You mama's can probably relate to that.
Thank goodness for Pinterest and YouTube these days. You have saved my life! Genevieve from Mama Natural had a great idea of putting frozen fruit in a mesh teether or even ice cubes for baby to gnaw on. Teethers from the freezer seem to work pretty well too. Also, Mama Natural has a good teething biscuit recipe that I pinned// HERE. They're super simple the make and it gets their mind off of the teething pain for a while.
We have also been using the amber teething necklace we bought from our local baby store. This is the one we have// HERE. I'm not really sure if I see much of a difference, but they look cute on her and anything is worth a shot at this point.
Lily really isn't into teething toys or anything I've mentioned above really. She gets bored quickly and we always have to change it up. Although, she will try everything, but just not for very long.
The thing about teething is you can't fix it, and no matter how badly you feel and how much you both just want it to go away, it will most likely still be there until those little chompers are ready to come through. All we can do is hug those little ones and love them though it. Lily is addicted that part. She loves her snuggles more then any teething toy I could buy.
