Teething baby? First, here’s a virtual hug, hoping you get a nap, and that you have a good stockpile of coffee! The teething days are never any fun for the baby and the rest of the family. Try some of these natural teething remedies for some relief and hopefully (fingers crossed) some sleep!
It may be a little more convenient to reach for ibuprofen/acetaminophen and some teething gel when baby starts showing signs of teething, but these products aren’t without their side effects. There are several safer options to try first before turning to pain medications for teething. Ibuprofen/acetaminophen can cause stomach upset, kidney issues and can easily be overdosed. Topical teething gels that contain the numbing agent lidocaine or benzocaine usually only last a very short time and frequent application can lead to high levels of the medication in a baby’s blood stream. So what the heck is a parent to do?
You are probably already trying ice chews, teething toys, extra nursing, anything else to bring baby some comfort. Here are some other remedies to help baby while those teeth pop through.
