Every milestone your baby achieves is not only exciting but a true blessing. Even if that milestone is teething. This uncomfortable milestone can come with sensitive gums, drooling, crankiness, the need to chew on everything in sight, and sometimes even a low-grade fever. Take it from me, none of this is exciting! It’s difficult to watch your child go through these painful stages. Unfortunately, it’s something all of us parents must suffer through with our babies. So what are your options? How do you help your little one cope with the discomfort? You have a few choices. You can try over-the-counter baby remedies or you can try the more homeopathic approach. I am personally a fan of more natural remedies like teething toys, DIY popsicles, and these Quinoa Pear Teething Biscuits.

Thus far Emory’s teething symptoms have been amazingly minimal. Her two bottom teeth began to sprout around 9 months and officially popped through around 10 months. Most recently her two top teeth have come in and to our surprise, the only symptoms exhibited were fussiness and finger chewing. I started making DIY popsicles with my breast milk and LOVES them even when she isn’t teething.

We’ve noticed that her gums are getting a bit swollen and her incisors seem to be approaching the surface. Although she’s doesn’t appear in pain yet, I have noticed that she is looking for something to provide her a bit of relief. She really likes the Nosh Baby Munchables Teethers with Organic Rice. I highly recommend these if you are looking for something to give your baby while researching recipes.

When researching recipes, my main goals were to locate snacks that contained:

  • no added sweeteners
  • no wheat products
  • no salt
  • no artificial flavors or ingredients

I stumbled across a recipe for teething biscuits that I really liked and decided to give it a try. It took a couple of failed attempts before I was able to somewhat perfect the recipe. I am still attempting to get an understanding of the exact texture of these teething biscuits. The first run came out very hard, like dog treats. Emory couldn’t break them, she just used them to massage her gums and then tossed them aside. The second batch while a little softer but didn’t dissolve. After attempting to locate a recipe that truly described the texture of the biscuits, I’ve settled on the conclusion that these teething biscuits are best suited to massage sore gums, vs. actual consumption.

While Emory enjoys gumming these gluten-free teething biscuits they are too hard for her to actually eat. Most recipes state that these Quinoa pear teething biscuits dissolve, but we have not experienced that. We usually find them laying on the ground around the house after they have been in her mouth. Due to the fact that this recipe is a new one for me, I would love to hear your reviews as well as any suggestions you may have below in the comments!
