Natural help for teething babies?

Alright, Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer is hosting a backwards Works-for-me-Wednesday. In other words, rather than suggesting my own tip or advice about a subject, I get to ask all of you about a question that is burning in my mind!

Here it is… how do you help (and cope with) your teething babies? And without constantly resorting to good ol’ Tylenol, as I want to stay as natural as possible (although as some goods friends of ours say, in relation to teething children of course, "when there’s dope, there’s hope").

I’ve tried a lot of different things, a few of them work somewhat, but overall the days are still long and hard, the nights somewhat sketchy, and my production levels tend to drop to an all time low, only rivaled by the first trimester of pregnancy. Help me, please! :)

A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies eCourse

I don't know if you've seen it or not, but I've shared a couple times this week about a collection of resources I'm honored to be a part of with some really brilliant authors and bloggers.

Before it's gone, I wanted to make sure that you knew that "A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies" eCourse is included in the collection. If you're anything like me, you want to learn more about using natural methods for taking care of your family, but sometimes it's just hard to know where to start. Roxanne and Wendi have done a masterful job of boiling down the complexities of wholistic family care - including homeopathy, cell salts, essential oils, probiotics, and a bunch more - and making it really accessible for regular moms.

The crazy thing is...although they usually sell the eCourse at $95 (and it's a steal at that!), they've agree to include it in the special collection of resources I've helped put together, for only $29.97.

But, if you think getting a crash course in natural remedies at two thirds off the regular price is awesome, I think you'll be surprised to learn that it comes with 98 other resources handpicked for moms like you and me.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be.

Now, you're obviously not going to read every eBook, and every eCourse (that would be a bit much!), but I think you'll find a number of resources in the collection to inspire, teach, equip, and encourage you in your role as a homemaker for years to come.

Valued at over $1290 but at a price tag of just $29.97, this is one tool your home can't do without!

Plus, everyone who buys a bundle through Keeper of the Home gets a bonus 2 oz. liquid herbal remedy AND our very own 4 ebooks, all designed to help you with more affordable, healthy homemaking. Learn more HERE.

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 27.

  1. We put a wet washcloth in the freezer, and once it’s frozen give it to our son to chew on.

  2. Cynthia Alba says:

    I use Humphrey’s teething tablets, they are homeopathic as well. They work really well; most of the time, but unfortunately I do have to use the Tylenol sometimes.

  3. I use Hylands teething tablets. They are homeopathic and work like a charm for us. :)

  4. My 16 month-old seems to find that biting on a rubber spoon (a freebie that came with Gerber crackers one time) is very comforting. He’s chewed on it so much that it’s losing shape, but, as long as he’s not biting ME, I don’t care!

    Someone else told me her baby liked to chew on cold, damp washcloths. I haven’t tried that one yet.

  5. We used Teether Tablets. They are all natural according to the packaging. Should be able to find them at Walgreens, Rite-Aid, etc
