When your baby is in the midst of teething you want to ease their pain – fast. I have never been one to push medication or chemicals on my children and teething is no exception. Sure, I’ll give some acetamenophen if I have to, but I like to try natural remedies first. Kaia is teething right now and so far I have kept it under control pretty well with lots of cuddles, extra nursing and a few great teethers. One of Kaia’s favorite right now is the Nuby Icybite keys.
These cute freezer safe keys are perfect for tiny teethers! They feature a variety of teething textures and surfaces sure to please any baby. The hard plastic ring and textured rubbery key tops massage baby’s gums as they chew and the bright colors help with visual stimulation. The keys are filled with non-toxic purICE gel that soothes sore spots and stays cool much longer than water filled teethers. As always, these are BPA and phthalate free.
These keys are a great alternative to remedies like pain relievers and topical gels. I don’t like to keep my children medicated unless I have to, and teething gels are a no-no because most of them contain benzocaine (check out the FDA warnings here.) The Nuby IcyBite keys are a worry free way to tame teething troubles naturally, and Kaia just loves them!
You can find them at Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target and other select retailers. Like them on Facebook to stay up to date on their latest news and promotions.
