Teething Relief...

My poor, poor Madelyn has been teething and teething lately. I swear, it's almost as if every time I turn around and look in her mouth there is another tooth working its way through and making my babe miserable. Teething wasn't a problem for Maddie until her molars started coming int.

Since then we've had crying, lots of sleepless nights, bleeding gums and all around just not feeling good. It breaks my heart that I can't just take away her pain and I find myself hoping that the next tooth will make it's way through and have her feeling like her normal, chipper self.

I felt out of sorts at first, not knowing what I could do. So many products out there failed in comforting her. Until I tried Annable Karmel's Fill & Freeze Puree Pops. Serious genius! I had a feeling that these would work for a couple of reasons, the first being that they're frozen. Coldness on sore, teething gums? I had a feeling that it would be a perfect answer to my girl's teething woes. The second reason I thought this would work was that she would be eating something yummy therefore (hopefully) her mind would be taken off how miserable her mouth felt.

I visited her site and browsed for a yummy and healthy recipe. She has such a variety of recipes to choose from! I highly recommend that you check some of them out. I found a recipe for Traffic Light Ice Lollies. Instead of the honey I used 100% fruit juice (we didn't have any honey on hand!). They turned out wonderfully! Madelyn loved them--and I loved them that they were a nutritious and soothing special treat for my girl.

So my advice for teething (if your little one is older)? Get the Fill & Freeze Puree Pops from Annabel Karmel--it will make your life a lot easier and make your little one a happy little camper while getting relief from those painful gums!

Awww, teething is so rough on little ones!

I used to give mine frozen waffles to chomp on.

My baby just got his first tooth! It took it's time coming up (he's 10 months old), so he could totally use this product. Good to know!
