Teething Tools

Green Your Kids — By on November 1, 2009 6:00 PM

As I type, I have a horrible toothache, so I thought that I might write something about teething. I feel for you babies!

Teething can be painful for babies, but please resist the temptation to buy your child a plastic teething toy, no matter how colorful and cute. Plastics contain PVC’s, phthalates, and other toxins that you dont want in your baby’s mouth.

Instead, how about trying “Under the Nile Organic Bumblebee Teething Ring” from Hazelnut Kids (www.hazelnutkids.com) -on the website, go under “select a brand’ and scroll down to “under the Nile”. You can also try some homeopathic remedies from Hylands or Boiron. And one that I know works (even as an adult), rubbing the gums with your finger.
