Natural Teething Remedies

I was always looking for natural teething remedies for my first two children.  They cut teeth early and usually had a majority of their teeth by their first birthday.  Therefore, I wasn’t surprised when Sugar Bee started teething at 2 months old.  Her teething symptoms were fairly manageable until she started having 2 teeth coming in at a time.  Thus began my search for natural teething remedies.

 

My old go to was Hyland’s Teething tablets which were as great natural teething remedy.  It seemed to help my other two children when they were teething. Unfortunately, Hyland’s Teething tablets were recalled, then eventually taken off of the shelves in the US. I won’t go into detail but you can read more about what happened here. If you are like me you don’t want to bombard your babies body with medication.   Since is it not a good idea to give baby infant pain medications for extended periods of time, it is best to find natural teething remedies that have no side effects.

Teethers

Teethers are a great natural remedy for teething babies.  The most difficult part about traditional teethers is finding one that your baby will love.  Like I mentioned above Sugar Bee preferred softer teethers.  She also needed a teether that would be easy for her to grip.  I also found a wooden teether which you can easily make the wooden ring baby teethers yourself by using an organic wooden ring and organic cotton fabric.

Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces

Amber Teething necklaces are “made of Baltic amber.  The theory is when baby wears a Baltic Amber necklace the body heat triggers the release of a minute amount of oil that contains succinic acid.  Succinic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body. When the oil is absorbed it has an analgesic effect on swollen and sore gums.” Source

Hazelwood Teething Necklaces

 

Natural Teething Remedies

 

“Hazelwood comes from the branches of Corylus cornuta, a widespread indigenous bush that grows throughout many regions of Canada.  Hazelwood teething necklaces are made from natural 100% sustainably harvested hazelwood. Hazelwood jewelry is an unconventional and very original product.  This wood has been traditionally used for its medicinal properties for centuries, by indigenous people.  Research shows that Hazelwood is rich in active compounds which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  Customers’ testimonials show that wearing Pure Hazelwood necklaces/bracelets in contact with the skin can relieve some discomforts that may be related to inflammation such”.

Hazelwood teething necklaces do need to be changed for often than Amber Teething Necklaces (about everything months are so) because their potency wears off.  According to parents who have used them, they are a great natural teething remedy.

 

Teething Necklaces for Mom

Unlike Baltic Amber and Hazelwood teething necklaces, these necklaces are supposed to worn by moms. They are usually made from silicone which is safe for baby.  I love these types of teething necklaces because they come in so many different styles.

If you are in a pinch using everyday items as natural teething remedies.  I few items that I have used have been a cold wet washcloth or a brand new kids toothbrush. Sugar Bee love both of these remedies because they were soft and easy to hold.
