One of the cheapest natural teething remedies is distraction! Never underestimate the power of distraction! Just removing your child from the situation is often enough for them to completely forget the teething pain. This natural teething remedy often works wonders, not only during teething, but also for many other situations in life.
2. Gum Massage:
Applying gentle pressure on your bubs sore gums or allowing bub to chew and gum your clean finger, is also a great natural teething remedy and a way to help relieve teething pain and discomfort of teething.
Baby's toothbrush fingerling is a great tool, as it not only perfect to clean your bubs first teeth with, but the smooth side of the fingerling is also ideal to massage your baby's sore gums and ease bubs teething pain and provide some natural teething relief for your baby.
3. A cold wash cloth:
A simple, yet very effective natural teething remedy is a cold wash cloth. Simply dip a washcloth in breast milk, water or even chamomile tea and freeze or chill the washer. This basic natural teething remedy will help to numb your baby's sore gums and help with teething symptoms. Nothing is better than something nice and cool on sensitive and sore gums.
A very popular natural teething remedy is a Baltic Amber teething necklace. The Amber teething necklace is designed for your baby to wear, not to chew on! The heat of the body helps to release a small amount of succinic acid from the Amber teething necklace, which has anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties and can help with many common teething symptoms such as drooling, teething rash, swollen and sore gums and general teething pain. When my kids were little, I double wrapped the Amber teething necklace around their ankle until I felt comfortable to have it around their neck the whole time (Please note, Amber teething necklaces are not recommended to leave on babies while sleeping!)
The Iris Root Teether has been one of the most popular natural teething remedies since centuries throughout Europe and is recommended by many mothers and midwives. The Iris Root Teether contains isophthalic acid, a natural anti-inflammatory, that is slowly released as your baby gnaws on the Iris Root Teether, which will help you baby to get the much needed teething pain relief. Both my children loved their Iris Root Teethers and it helped them fantastic to ease their teething pain, yet why I started to import them to Australia.

A soft plush teething toy from an organic brand like 'Kaptin JR' is a safe option for babies to chew on when struggling with teething pain. My daughter loved chewing on the knots of her 'Kaptin JR' organic doll and she loved cuddling up with her organic doll, which comforted her when she was upset due to teething pain.
