Teething is never a fun time. All three of my children started the teething process later than my nieces and nephews and I wasn’t the least bit disappointed. In fact, I was quite happy with their toothless gummy smiles.

Miss B is officially two as of 11 days ago, 2! Where did my baby goes? She is a full-fledge toddler who has the personality of a 3 or 4 year old. Whoever thinks that teething is only difficult for the baby, is wrong. It is also a very painful process for Mama! All jokes aside, it is hard to watch your happy little one become a grump because of being in pain! While I don’t remember teething, I have recently had wisdom teeth removed and remember just how much pain they caused me. Mouth pain is no laughing matter. As a Mama of three, here are my suggestions to try with you are dealing with teething, toddlers and tears.

Freeze a bottle. Freeze just a small amount of water in an upside down baby bottle so you can create a chewable icepack. This only works if your little one likes the coldness on their gums, but will help to relieve the pain for a little while.

Freeze a banana. Again, your little one has to like the coldness, but chewing on a frozen banana helps numb the gums and every so often rewards them with a yummy chunk of banana.

Clean damp dishcloths or wash clothes. Little ones love to chew on things while teething, provide them something they can manuevr and feels good on the gums.

Carrots. Not baby carrots, but full sized carrots are great for teething babies when they don’t have teeth. They can chew on them for a long time with a little flavor and it feels so good on those sore gums.

Offer a spoon. Place a spoon in your frig and when you need it pull it out and let them chew on it. The cold metal against the gums will make your little one happy. My hubby flattened a couple of spoons for our kids so the edges were not as harsh in their mouth, they worked great!

  1. I’ve never heard of the frozen banana! My girls would have loved chewing on something like that to soothe their gums and have great flavor at the same time. Infants’ Advil was definitely a must during the teething phase – especially for sleeping through the night. #client
