Teething it’s to blame for everything isn’t it? Sleepless nights – its teething. Nappy rash – its teething. Crying – must be teething! So, here’s my tried & trusted essentials that have helped Miss Marnie more than a few times….
* Sophie La Girafe – This ‘must-have’ teething essential should be in every modern mama’s bag (and you will notice she is – as Sophie has been around since 1961!) Made with 100% natural rubber Sophie is the perfect first teether for tiny hands.
£12.99 Sophie La Girafe
* Cheeky Monkey Organic Cheek Rub – This little bottle of magic just needs to be rubbed into rosy cheeks to calm baby down. Not sure if its the rubbing motion or the essential oils but it really works! £7.50 Organic Monkey
* Amber Teething Anklet – A small beaded bracelet or anklet that baby wears to relives pain – Miss Marnie has been wearing it day and night since she was 6 months old and I believe it helps! (you’ll try anything right?) The science bit – Amber is a natural analgesic and when worn close to the skin it releases healing oils and relaxes baby.
From £7.65 Baby Amber Teething
