Teething should be outlawed!

Moms: Whats your best teething trick?

Boy, oh boy! We have two teeth and more coming in! So we have been trying some different tricks to help easy the pain. Here's a few things that seem to be helping:

RazBerry Teether
This has been great! The RazBerry is shaped just like a pacifier, so you baby will be comfortable with it in their month. The binky part is raised, bumpy, and slightly hard; it feels great on the baby's sore gums. We sometimes stick it in the freezer fo a few minutes to chill it down for extra relief of sore gums! Lucy just chews and chews on hers!

Sophie the Giraffe
Sophie is my hero! Lucy just LOVES this little giraffe. We can't leave the house without it. It is made with 100% Natural Rubber which is phthalates free and decorated with food quality paint. So it is completely safe for your little one to chew away on! It also squeaks when squeezed, Lucy figured that one out immediately! "Lovable and amusing, she makes a happy sound when her body is squeezed: Stimulate baby's hearing and helps him to understand the link between cause and effect. She is perfect for soothing Baby's sore gums when teething." I have to say that Sophie is a must! If you don't have her yet, get her today!

Angel Dear Blankie
So cute! And so great on sore gums! The corners of this blankie are sewn into little "nubs" that your baby can chew on. There are also 5 "nubs"down the middle of the blankie for extra chewing fun! We dip the "nubs" in water and put the blankie in the freezer for a few minutes. The "nubs" get nice and cold and it feels great on Lucy's gums. Don't leave it in the freezer too long, you don't want the "nubs" get too frozen!

And of course, we can't live with out Orajel and infant
Tylenol. Lucy likes the Soothing Cucumber Orajel , the Nighttime Formula Orajel, and Grape flavored Tylenol. We store the Orajel in the fridge so it is extra cold and soothing when we put it on Lucy's gums!

Moms, do you have any tips of tricks for teething?

Ok this one is good if you need something on the fly... a frozen waffle! The groves in the waffle massage their gums and catch a lot of the extra saliva they are producing and the cold waffle sooths. It’s a good alternative if baby gets tired of the toys.
