Teething edit: relieve teething pain, naturally
The time has come... Josie has started teething! The rosy red cheeks, the unsettled sleep, the constant neediness. Teething is NOT easy on anyone! We thought we'd take the opportunity to recap our fave natural teething products for any other Mumma's out there.
Teething is a process and one that takes time - sometimes a LOT of time! Teeth move up and down under the gum, long before you see them. Then they decide to break through and when they finally do, you take a sigh of relief. Only for it is start again on the next one, two, three, four teeth... sometimes you feel like it can take forever for one measly tooth. Other times they pop through, almost unnoticed. However it happens, your babe will go through some good runs and not-so-good runs so be prepared!
Here's our top picks to help relieve teething pain for your baby, naturally:
ALL SILICONE TEETHERS
Teethers like our exclusive ARROW teether are perfect to massage and soothe sore gums. Teethers take advantage of baby's natural instinct to chew and allows baby to self-manage where and how hard they chomp down - putting them in control! As a bonus, teethers made of all silicone can also be popped in the fridge or freezer to cool for extra soothing relief on gums. Shop now >
Amber necklaces are renowned for natural pain relief to support babies through teething. Natural amber helps boost the immune, supports skin conditions and is a wonderfully calming stone - perfect for teething babies! Our Lotus Love and Winter Dream styles also combine precious gems for added benefits and a beautiful, stylish finishing touch. Shop now >
SILICONE AND WOOD TEETHERS
This style of teether provides the best of both teething worlds for baby - the silky soft silicone to massage and soothe plus the harder texture of beech wood for bub to really chomp down on when teeth are getting closer to the gum. Wood may even assist teeth to break through that final layer. Again, baby is in complete control to choose which texture they prefer and when. Shop now >
