Surely, parents can't afford to pay the doctor a visit every time their child has pain because of teething. Naturally, many resort to take care of it at home. Fortunately, there are many home remedies for teething and they can vary. We tell you about ten home remedies for teething pain to help get you started.
This might be unheard of but beef jerky makes great teethers. Since it is tough but flavourful, babies love chomping on this dried meat endlessly. After several minutes of being a baby’s chew toy, parents should replace the drooled-on jerky with a new one to prevent choking accidents.
One of the best remedies for teething is chomping on a piece of chilled banana. Since bananas are soft and safe, babies can swallow what they chew off. The entire process should be closely monitored by parents.
Teething necklaces made from amber is considered as one of the common remedies for teething. Wearing amber gives off succinic acid into the skin and alleviates pain. Succinic acid reduces inflammation and heals wounds. Plus, the textures and shapes of the beads on the necklaces relieve pressure on the gums.
Just like clove oil, vanilla has properties that relieve teething pain. Rub a small amount on baby’s gum once a day for it to be effective.
A chilled washcloth is one of the best remedies for teething. The cool and soft fabric helps with the pain. To make it more textured for your fussy baby, make several knots on the ends of the washcloths.
Shaved ice (flavoured or unflavoured) is usually considered to be one of the most favourite remedies for teething compared to other options. The ice brings down the swelling and numbs the pain. The slushy can be fed by a spoon like it is when being served as a drink.
Tasty, frozen waffles make for a great remedy for teething. If a small piece is broken off the baby, you can safely turn it into mush.
Chilled raw carrots are a great and healthy remedy for teething. The cool and firm texture is just what babies need. Watch out for broken off pieces to prevent choking.
Cold foods like straight-from-the-fridge applesauce taste good and are gum-friendly.
By placing a toothbrush inside the mouth, a baby’s pain can be alleviated because of the gum massage it receives by stroking the brush back and forth against the teeth. Chewing on a toothbrush is also a great way to help with the pain.
