Carrot Sticks for Teething

 This morning, we went to the park. As usual, right? You can just go ahead and assume that if it’s nice outside (well, even if it’s not) we’re most likely at a park or at least somewhere outside. No news there. This afternoon, while the boys were napping, I got the house cleaned up a bit because my mom is coming this evening! I’m so excited. She hasn’t been here since Joshua was born. I can’t wait.

In the meantime, I’ve discovered the best item/medicine/toy/product for a teething baby.

Joshua has four teeth that just broke through his gums all at the same time. They are so stinkin’ cute!

A cold carrot stick! 


{Just make sure you make don’t give them too small of a piece. Chocking hazard, you know.}

He loved it!

I put those books in front of him while he was playing. Just trying to encourage book reading. It wasn’t park of the picture set up, promise. Natural every day life blogging, yo. Check out the ragged wipe in the background. Does it look like a mouse? Sort of did to me for a second. I would have cropped that out for sure.

Back to carrot sticks — He loved gnawing on it. Growing new teeth is hard work!

That’s my tip of the day. Hope it works for you!

  1. I busted out laughing when I saw this post. Peter and I always make fun of my dad because he always tells us the “carrot trick” for teething. Over and over and over and over. It's like the one thing related to kids he knows. It does work, but I'll never admit that to him. LOL
