Teething Blues

Hey y'all! Pardon my absence, the hustle and bustle of family and life has kept my extremely busy. During this time, baby Zoey has been teething and teething makes for a very fussy baby. She's not teething just one, but 4!!! I have been on a search to find her some relief and me as well. 

 

Raw Amber Teething Necklace


I was a very skeptical momma when I heard about teething bracelets and necklaces. How could they possibly work?! I went back and forth for months trying to decide if these things really worked or if it was another baby fad. I asked her Pediatrician and she gave the thumbs up. I reluctantly broke down at my wits end and purchased one. There are so many out there and so many choices. I purchased one from The Art of the Cure. I exposed it to light for 30 minutes and then put it around her neck. She found it intriguing and began to pull on it. That made me uneasy, even with the safety clasp. I then removed it and wrapped it around her wrist for skin to skin contact and so that she wasn't able to pull on it. I am now a believer! It may be all in my head but I believe it works! She's a lot less fussy now. If it is all in my head, it's still a cute accessory!
 

Hyland Teething Products


There are so many products out there for teething babies. After going through multiple teething rings, I believe we both were ready for a solution. I purchased Hyland's all natural teething gel and teething tablets. I spent countless number of hours researching the tablets. They are dissolvable and easy to use, which eased my worries. I call them my sanity in a bottle! They seem to provide immediate relief! Zoey is a lot less fussy and is able to eat more.

Frozen Binky

A little trick I tried was freezing her binky. This happened on accident. Doing many things at once and I laid her binky in the ice maker. After discovering it was in there, I took it out and gave it to her. She loved it! It was frozen and cool. It provided her some relief. It was a quick, easy, AND free solution!
