Baby girl’s first two teeth are making their debut and she is taking it like a champ. For a teething baby she is handling it very well but I can still tell her teeth are bothering her. We’ve tried the cold teething rings that go in the fridge but she just doesn’t seem too interested in them. I know that the cold would sooth her gums so I started experimenting and came up with this – frozen jicama strips.
If you are not familiar with jicama – pronounced hick-a-ma - it is a root vegetable, crisp, sweet and refreshing. When frozen they are the perfect teether. It’s just barely sweet flavor keeps her attention and you can tell when she chews on them that they feel good to her sore gums. She isn’t too interested in holding them herself – too cold – but if someone will hold them for her, she is all about them! I love that they are all-natural and because they are white and mostly water they are much less messy than teething biscuits! Here’s to new teeth!
On another note – I realized I’ve been slacking when it comes to pictures of the little one! Its hard to take cute pictures of a sick kid and I am beyond ready for cold season to be over but here are a couple from Easter. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!Happy Monday!
