Teething is a normal part of a baby’s development when their baby teeth are in the process of erupting. It typically occurs from 6-24 months of age and trust me you will know.
During this time your child will most likely experience discomfort due to tender and swollen gums, become irritable, go through tons of bibs from drooling, and try to bite on any and everything to relieve the pain. Oh and lots of crying.
Teething is a stressful time for you and your baby as you struggle to find ways to relieve their pain but thanks to one mom named Tasia Blackwell (same name gang 💁🏾♀️ so I like her already) who invented Milksicles there’s a solution to this challenge.
Milksicles aka breastmilk popsicles are the best breastfeeding hack I’ve tried so far. Not only are they great for soothing your teething baby’s sore gums, but they are also a yummy nutritious treat.
Breast milk has so many benefits and in popsicle form is a genius idea. Milksicles are a hit!
Dealing with a irritable teething baby can be rough so try giving them a Milksicle next time they are being fussy they will love it and you don’t have to take my word for it because you know it works if baby Kalvin approves.
Making Milksicles is relatively easy. Here’s what you’ll need:
Popsicle Mold (you can easily purchase these from amazon)
- Pump or hand express breastmilk
- Pour milk into your popsicle mold
- Freeze until solid
You see that happy baby? He’s happy and in do not disturb mode.
This version of him you don’t want to meet. LOL. This was captured right after he dropped his Milksicle and I quickly scrambled to put it back in his hand.
Cant wait for your teething baby to return back to his sweet precious self? I feel you. Babies tears are a moms kryptonite. We just hate to see our babies suffering. Next time try giving your baby a Milksicles. See the magic of a Milksicle for yourself.
There are plenty of other methods that help relieve your teething tots what methods did you use?
