Teething in babies are easy to get and apply with very good results for the output of the baby’s first teeth, which usually appear around five or six months and the last appears around two and a half years. Teething does not bother some babies too much, while others cause discomfort and even pain, becoming very restless, even at night without being able to sleep. As we know that there are several moms who are going through this moment, we created a list of 10 natural remedies to alleviate the discomfort of the little ones:
10 Natural Remedies For Babies Teeth
1.- Massage in the gums:
Pressing inflamed gums with a clean, cold finger creates pressure against the emerging tooth that temporarily relieves discomfort.
2-Baby feeder with fruits:
Better than cold teethers it is fresh fruit and if the baby has already begun to eat them, you will enjoy a lot of relief chewing or sucking for example a pear or cold apple. And to avoid the risk of suffocation, you can use a “baby feeder mesh bag”, which are little bags of fabric where we put a piece of fruit, so that although you bite, you can never choke.
3-Silicone breastfeeding necklace or teethers:
In this stage, the discomfort in the baby will cause you to feel like biting everything. The teethers or the silicone breastfeeding necklaces are ideal because they are made precisely for this. The materials are very resistant and your baby can bite and bite to relieve themselves.
Far away the best treatment for the pain of babies. There are studies that prove that pain decreases when babies are breastfed, given that they feel safe and calm down. Many babies instinctively want to suckle more during teething, since sucking relaxes the pain; also, some small ones are comforted with a pacifier. Breastfeeding, in addition, has the added benefit of helping to align the baby’s teeth correctly and prevent subsequent malocclusion.
5.- Nail of smell:
Clove is well known for its ability to relieve toothache. In the case of babies, we recommend clove oil or an infusion that you should apply with massage on the baby’s gums. If you get the clove oil, you can dilute it in a carrier oil like olive oil.
6.- Ice or ice cream Popsicle:
Another solution is to gently cool and anesthetize inflamed gums. You can use an ice cube that starts to melt to gently rub the gums, or an ice cream made from fruits or mom’s milk.
Chamomilla vulgaris is a homeopathic remedy that is used for the appearance of the first teeth. This remedy mitigates the irritability of infants and young children. You can dilute 5 balls in a little water or breast milk and give it 3 times a day. (Always with medical authorization)
8.- Cold and wet cloth cloths:
Cold cloth wipes love little ones because they bite easily. You must soak it in cold water and leave it for a while in the freezer. You can also put a crushed ice inside the washcloth. Another alternative is a fresh cloth towel soaked in chamomile tea.
9.- Amber necklace:
The amber necklace has become very popular given its benefits for babies. The original amber releases succinic acid from amber on the baby’s skin when in contact with its heat. Succinic acid is known to accelerate the healing of wounds, relieve muscle aches, reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach, reduce and prevent respiratory disease, decrease the symptoms of colic, reduce acid reflux, reduce eczema and improves the function of the heart, liver, kidney, and intestine.
10.- Do not forget to clean your baby’s face:
Excessive drooling caused by teething can cause an irritant rash around the baby’s lips and chin. It is advisable to lubricate the skin with a mild emollient such as Vaseline, sweet almond oil, cold pressed coconut oil to prevent the skin from getting wet with saliva and irritating.
