Tears stream down their little face and you discover inflamed gums and eager new teeth are the culprit. Parents, teething can last for years. Your child will experience discomfort as their tiny teeth travel up into their mouth between the ages of 6 months and 3 years. There are all kinds of teething toys out there, many of them made from plastic or latex that could be dangerous for your little one.
Here at Kyte BABY, our number one concern is safety, so we recommend trying these all-natural teething remedies!
Start in the kitchen. Do you have fresh cucumber in your veggie drawer? Cucumber can be used as a pain reliever and an organic alternative to those silicone teething toys. Peel the cucumber and cut it into thick slices. Scoop out the middles, making the slices into rings. These your baby can chew on to their heart’s content, and you never have to worry about them ingesting harmful chemicals.
Peeled ginger root can serve as an anti-inflammatory. When your child is suffering from red, inflamed gums due to teething, rub a thin slice of peeled ginger on their gums for a few minutes. This should calm nerve endings and provide them with some pain relief.
Most babies just want something to chew on when they are teething. As an alternative to cucumber rings, try freezing a damp Kyte BABY washcloth. Our washcloths are made from all-natural, hypoallergenic bamboo fabric. Give your child the opportunity to chew on a frozen Kyte BABY washcloth for teething relief.
