Teething remedies for Babies….. and Mums!!
When those little nashers start to come out your poor little sweet innocent delicious baby can turn into a crying, drooling, red-faced mess. I know all too well as both my girls really suffered. I searched the globe for solutions, as I hated seeing them in pain. I found a few old school remedies but also found some great products. Read below for my top tips to survive the teething days!
Rub their gums
You can simply rub a clean finger over your baby’s sore gums, or use a damp washcloth to massage your baby’s gums. The pressure can ease your baby’s pain and creates a bonding moment for the two of you!

Give them a teething ring
Try one made of firm rubber and put it in the fridge (not freezer) for a bit. (Be careful with the liquid-filled variety as they might break under the pressure of your baby’s chewing.) There are varieties available so search the web.
