Trying to soothe a miserable teething baby can make parents feel helpless. And when you’ve tried all the teething toys, biscuits, and home remedies you can find with no relief, it’s even more frustrating.
That’s why one mom’s DIY hack for teething pain is a game-changer. Emelia Jackson, mama to a teething baby, shared the tip on Facebook and it’s gone viral because it’s so simple and smart. Her suggestion? Putting water in a Philips Avent “Soothie” pacifier and sticking it in the freezer for a few hours.
These are the same pacifiers they give you at the hospital, and they’re open in the back so you can fill them with water and make a super-soothing teething popsicle with it, which will provide instant relief to your unhappy little one’s gums. Jackson also assures moms that there’s no hole in the pacifier, so there’s “absolutely no way for the baby to get the water,” so it’s safe. And your baby’s aching mouth will thank you.
