All-Natural Teething Remedies for a Teething Baby

August 02, 2018

A teething baby makes for an unhappy baby and unhappy parents. Teething is a natural part of a growing infants life, but that doesn’t mean they have to suffer without any sort of relief. There are a lot of different teething remedies out there, but as any parent knows, not all remedies were created equally. In addition, many parents do not want to use remedies that could potentially have side effects, such as pain medications. Thankfully, there are many natural remedies at hand. If you are looking for all-natural teething remedies, look no further than these 4 effective and natural solutions to teething pain.

Cold Rags:

Teething pain is largely caused by sore gums. One of the best way to relieve sore gums is through cold or through pressure. Teething rags combine both of these elements for an effective relief of teething pain. Cold rags should be dipped in water and frozen, and then given to an infant to gnaw on when they are experiencing teething pain. As always, make sure you watch your baby when you give them the rag and never give them a rag which is torn or has loose strings.

Teething Relief

Amber Teething Necklaces:

Amber teething necklaces have become very popular in the last few years, and for good reason: they really work. Amber teething necklaces are made from amber, or fossilized tree resin, which contains a compound called succinic acid. Succinic acid is a natural anti-inflammatory which, when absorbed through the skin while wearing one of these necklaces, reduces gum inflammation and irritation. Since most teething pain is caused by sore gums, the reduction of this inflammation will result in teething pain relief. Best of all, they can last for years when they are taken care of properly, so you won’t have to spend money to replace them like you would teething toys. Like any necklace, they should only be worn by babies who are being directly supervised. It is also worth noting that amber jewelry also comes in bracelets and anklets which are great for night time sleeping.

Teething Toys:


Teething toys can be used to relieve teething pain through pressure, cold, or both. There are a lot of different types of teething toys out there. Ideally, you should look for a toy which can be easily chewed on and used by your baby. Some of the best toys have special nubbed designs which can be very relieving for babies with teething pain. Most of these toys can also be put into the freezer to make them cold, which will result in additional relief for your infant.

Teething Gloves:

Another useful teething remedy is teething mitts or gloves. Teething gloves are designed to be worn by infants, and have textured exteriors so that when the baby chews on their hand, it provides teething pain relief. These gloves are made with special materials so that the baby can’t hurt their hand while they chew on it. Since these should not be cold due to making contact with the baby’s skin, teething gloves generally are best used in conjunction with other remedies like amber teething necklaces.
