Teething Troubles? Readers Share Their Favorite At-home Remedies

By babbleeditors |

Watching your baby grow up is a mix of wonder, excitement, and sadness. And when it comes to teething, you can also add headaches and tears — yours and baby’s.

We asked Babble readers how they handled the drooling, screaming pain as baby’s first teeth came in. Their answers, especially the non-medicinal, homespun ones, are easy and effective. Parents, get your freezer ready!

    Amber necklaces are NOT meant to be chewed on! The amber releases an oil when heated by the body. It’s not meant to be ingested, and if your baby can get his necklace to his mouth, it’s too long.

      Good points, Elizabeth and Steph. We had the teething necklace advice clarified. Thanks!

  2. Steph says:

    The picture for the teething necklace is a poor choice, like the PP said, they are not for chewing!
    And whiskey-soaked clothespins??? WTF??? You don’t know how much alcohol actually gets in your babies body this way, just don’t do it.
