Homemade Teething Biscuits

There comes a time when every baby goes through one of the toughest seasons in babyhood…teething! The teething process can be lengthy and begins long before that very first tooth pops through the gumline. You may start to recognize your baby becoming fussier, biting down on anything that comes near their mouth and perhaps you will find the need for drool bibs as they suddenly seem to be drooling around the clock! Your little one may even start to struggle to stay asleep or wake with painful cries. Many of these changes take place in the early stage of teething, all the way up until the tooth is actually visible in their mouth. For some babies, this can happen as early as a few months old, while others may not get their first tooth until later.

 

While the process is quite difficult for babies and parents alike, there are many ways to help soothe your little one during this phase. If your baby is already accustomed to eating solids, there is a simple recipe you can whip up especially for those sore little gums! Teething Biscuits are a great way for them to relieve the pressure in their gums, while getting to taste new flavors. The following recipe uses just a few ingredients that may already be in your kitchen!

Hi Theresa,
Thanks for reaching out! As long as you are watching it should be OK! We have allowed our little ones to try them early but we know everybody has different comfort levels. They can break off in little pieces after being sucked on for a bit. If you feel like the pieces are breaking off too much you can get them a new bar that isn’t so soggy with drool. :-)

My daughter is 6 months almost 7 and eating cereal+ puréed veggies and fruit. Is this okay for her? Do they stay diem enough where you don’t worry about choking on small pieces?

If your baby is having a hard time latching during feedings, perhaps a lip or tongue tie is the culprit. Both tongue ties and lip ties are characterized by extra tissue located under the upper lip or tongue that is too tight or otherwise positioned in a way that makes securing a proper latching during feedings a challenge for your baby. This will affect their latch regardless of whether you breastfeed or bottle feed.
