Looking to provide your little one with relief from their teething pain the natural way? Check out these 15 natural teething remedies that actually work.
Teething is such a tough time for little ones AND their parents. That said, finding a teething remedy that actually works can be quite difficult.
I don’t know about you, but teething was one of those things that I was a little nervous to experience.
I had heard so many horror stories about swollen gums and sleepless nights from other parents, so I definitely had a little bit of anxiety about it.
Not only that, but I’m HUGE on natural remedies.
Thankfully, being the natural researcher that I am, I found (and tried) a bunch of different remedies once my son started teething, and thankfully, THEY WORKED.
So naturally, I HAD to share some of my favorite natural teething remedies with y’all in hopes that they’ll provide your little ones with some relief – without all of the chemicals!
1. Breastmilk Popsicles
If you’re a breastfeeding or pumping mama, you can provide your baby with some relief by making them some breastmilk popsicles!
These popsicle molds are perfect for their little hands to grab while they enjoy some ice cold mama’s milk.
2. Frozen Washcloth
Frozen washcloths are one of the easiest, and most cost effective teething remedies.
Simply soak a wash cloth in water and put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes or so.
Take it out and let baby gnaw away on the frozen goodness.
3. Organic Chamomile Tea
If soaking the washcloth in water doesn’t seem to provide enough relief for your little one, you can also soak it in organic Chamomile tea.
Just be sure not to make it too strong!
4. Mesh Feeder
Mesh feeder’s were a life saver when m2y little one was teething.
Frozen fruit and even breastmilk ice cubes are perfect to go into the mesh feeder’s.
However, one major drawback of the mesh feeder’s is that they can be pretty difficult to clean.
I ended up switching to these instead, and my son loves them!
5. Baltic Amber Necklace
One of my absolute FAVORITE natural teething remedies are the baltic amber necklaces!
My son started wearing one at about 4 months and it REALLY worked wonders with helping to manage his teething pain.
6. Frozen Teether
Another really easy way to provide your li3ttle one with teething relief is to throw their favorite teether in the freezer.
If you use a liquid filled teether, I HIGHLY recommend that you utilize one filled with water.
7. Teething Gel Pods
These teething gel pods by Babyganics are AMAZING!!
They’re made with stevia and natural clove oil to provide almost immediate relief!
They come with 10 swabs and 10 individual pods, and are benzocaine free!
If you didn’t know, benzocaine can numb your baby’s natural gag reflex which can be extremely dangerous.
8. Hylands Teething Tablets
Hyland’s makes some of the best homeopathic products!
These quick dissolving tablets provide instant relief, and like the babyganics teething pods, they don’t contain any benzocaine.
9. Punkin Butt Oil
Aside from the hilarious name, Punkin Butt teething oil provides quick relief for your little one.
It’s a 100% natural oil made from chamomile, peppermint, and clove.
10. Camila Gel Pods
These Boiron Camilia drops are an amazing homeopathic alternative to Hyland’s quick dissolving tablets.
They come in single oral doses that can easily be dropped into baby’s mouth for almost instant relief.
11. Teething Pacifier
In addition to your regular teether, these silicone teething pacifiers are perfect for massaging baby’s gums as new teeth come in.
12. Maple Teething Rings
Maple wood teether’s are a great, eco-friendly alternative to plastic teethers.
Wood naturally has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, making this perfect for baby to gnaw on.
13. Teething Glove
Since most babies tend to chew on their hands while they’re teething, the baby teething mitten is perfect to massage their little gums while keeping them entertained.
14. Teething Jewelry
In addition to being awesome pieces of jewelry, teething necklaces are a great way to provide comfort and relief to your little one.
Not to mention, that they’re awesome for distracting baby while you’re out and about or breastfeeding.
15. Teething Biscuits
My son absolutely LOVED these organic teething biscuits.
They’re perfect for teething babies and provide soothing relief to swollen gums since they melt right in baby’s mouth!
There you have it!
These are my go-to remedies for natural teething relief!
I must admit, numbers 1, 4, 5 and 10 are my FAVS!
