Natural Remedies for Teething Babies

Most babies begin teething closer to about 4 to 8 months. The common symptoms include red and inflamed gums, increased saliva, irritability and moodiness, lack of appetite, and a desire to bite down on almost everything. Here is what to do when your child is teething:

  1. Give them soft fruits and vegetables to nibble. Carrots, cucumbers, bananas, and celery are good options. Make sure that the fruits/vegetables are cold and cut in small sizes.
  2. Place the baby’s pacifier or bottle nipple in the freezer and allow it to freeze. Sucking on the cold surface will provide relief to the child.
  3. One can also give the child an ice towel to toy with. Wrap 2-3 ice cubes in a towel and tie it at the base. Let your baby suck on it for comfort and pain relief.
  4. Massage your child’s body with clove oil. Also apply a tiny amount to the gums and cheeks.
  5. One can also apply vanilla extract on the gums for a calming effect.
