DealDash Helps: Teething Babies
No matter how cute your baby or grandchild is, eventually they will start teething and become a tiny terror. DealDash is here with some helpful hints to try to make them feel better.
I myself have a tiny teething terror, he just turned 8 months old, and he has his first and second teeth coming in at the same time and he is absolutely miserable! I have been doing a lot of research on the subject lately, and here are some of the best tips and tricks that I have found for soothing teething babies.
If you would like to buy your baby a teething toy the one that I recommend is Sophie the Giraffe. She is one of the more expensive teething toys at around $24, but she is totally worth it! She is made of a natural rubber which has an interesting smell which makes her irresistible to babies, and also Phthalates and BPA free which means she is safe for your little teether. She also is adorable and even squeaks. Everyone with a baby that I know has at least one of these giraffes. I actually have three of them, I keep them in different areas of the house and car so my baby always has a Sophie handy. You can get Sophie at Amazon, Toys R Us, and Target. If you’d like to save a little money, you can bid on both Toys R Us and Target gift cards on DealDash.
On the other hand, your baby doesn’t really need expensive teething toys, you can actually make a great teething toy from a baby wash cloth! Just dampen the baby wash cloth in water, stick it in the freezer, and after about an hour you will have a great frozen toy that your baby can chew on and soothe his or her gums with. For a little extra excitement you can tie a knot in the washcloth before you freeze it, and then your baby will have even more fun chewing it. After the wash cloth has come to room temperature, just rinse it off, and toss it back in the freezer. You can do this as many times as you like, it numbs baby’s gums to make them feel better, and it’s fun for them to play with as well.
Lastly, there are many different types of teething painkiller gels available on the market. These can work wonderfully, but there have been some recent studies that have found that they aren’t safe to use if you plan on feeding your baby before the painkiller gel wears off. It can numb the tongue as well as the gums, and that can make it harder for the baby to chew and swallow. So if you would like to use these, because they do work, use them with caution. I personally only use these at bedtime, when I know that my baby won’t be eating anything in the near future.
