Here are other natural teething remedies you can try.  One of these might work with your little one, or you may need to combine a few to relieve their pain.  (consult your doctor befor trying any of the herbal remedies)

* Frozen teething ring.

* Frozen/cold fruit.  Throw fruit in the freezer and let baby chew on it.  Watch for any broken pieces so they won’t choke.

* Frozen washcloth. Wet the cloth and put it in the freazer.  It will coolness will soothe baby’s gums.

* Natural teething tablets. We recommend Humphries teething tablets.  Contains Chamomillia to reduce irritability and belladonna for the inflammation.

* Vanilla extract. Rub on baby’s gum for a warm and soothing sensation. 

 * Clove oil. You’ll want to delute it since it is strong.  Mix a couple of drops of oil with 2 tablespoons of water.  Rub on baby’s gums. (This is a safe edible oil)

We hope these help you get through your day.
