Teething Ideas

In light of the recent recall on Hyland’s Teething Tablets, many parents are probably scrambling to find another natural alternative for their children. I look forward to hearing what many of our readers do and use as well, even if that is to continue to use Hyland’s. Let’s use this as a learning opportunity!

Other Brands of Teething Tablets
Even though you will be hard-pressed to find a bottle of Hyland’s these days, other companies do make tablets and drops for little ones to find teething pain relief. Our chiropractor recommended Boiron’s Teething Relief. Another brand we have used in the past is Humphrey’s Teething Pellets (although, in our area, they seem to be hard to find).

Amber Teething Necklaces
Baltic Amber is said to help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with teething. Just by wearing these necklaces next to the skin, the amber releases oils that help to diminish the pain.

Frozen Washcloth
For the older baby who can hold things in their mouth, this is a great help (especially if you have a “mouthy” baby who loves to chew on everything!) Wet one end of a baby washcloth and roll it up, like a cigar. Stick it in the freezer (preferably in a ziploc baggie or on a clean dish) and allow it to freeze. Once it is frozen, hand it to the teething child and let them have at it. Your child will naturally put the hardest part on those achy gums, soothing the pain.

Mama & Daddy
My boys have been terrible teethers, but one thing that has calmed the fussiness of those first teeth breaking through - massage. My husband or I would run our finger on their gums for what seemed like hours, but that counter pressure always seemed to provide some relief.

What has your child found helpful in those teething days?

I like to use the teething toys that are plastic and have water in them. I keep them in the fridge and when baby gets fussy I take one out and let him chew on it. They also work great for when my 2 year old gets an owie. He loves to get the 'ice' out of the fridge and instantly is better.
