Getting new teeth is painful! It can be hard to know how to help your teething baby. My daughter was an absolute wreck when she was teething! As we both began to lose more and more sleep, I started to wonder where my sweet little girl had gone. With a combination of natural, homeopathic, and pharmaceutical remedies we finally got our lives back.

Homeopathic or Natural teething remedies are a great way to help your teething baby effectively manage the pain. These are some of the best remedies I came across when my daughter was teething.

Chamomile / Camomilla! This is one of my favourite home remedies for baby teething. I have a large path of chamomile through my garden. I only recommend trying this is your baby is over 6 months old. Chamomile is very soothing and helps with pain.

  • Take a Chamomile tea bag, or 1 teaspoon of flowers and steep them in boiling water for 15 minutes
  • Strain the tea, and place in the freezer to chill
  • Soak a clean washcloth in the tea
  • Place directly on your babies gums, or just let them chew on it
  • Washcloths can also be frozen for extra chewing pleasure
  • Drink a nice cup yourself! Its very soothing!

Natural Licorice Stick! Let your (well supervised) baby chew on a licorice stick. Licorice feels very cool in your babies mouth, it will also help to numb their sore, red gums.

Clove Oil! This essential oil is a natural topical antiseptic! It has both the numbing and warming properties that a great for teething pain.

  • Take 4 drops of clove oil and and mix it with 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil, like olive oil
  • Rub this onto your babies gums with a clean finger
  • This can be repeated every few hours

Hylands Homeopathic Teething Gel! This was the first all natural teething gel on the market. It does not contain any numbing agents, no artificial colours or flavours, no sugars, and no parabens!

  • Apply a ¼ inch to a clean finger and rub on your babies gums.
  • You can re-apply every 15 minutes.

My favourite thing about Hylands Homeopathic Teething Gel, it is recommended by Dr Jim Sears, one of the most trusted pediatricians in America!

Boiron Camilia Teething! This homeopathic teething remedy, comes in 30 easy to administer, single doses. Boiron Camilia is water based, lactose free, and does not contain any sugar or preservatives.

  • Take one oral dose, twist the top off and squeeze the contents into your babies mouth
  • You may repeat doses every 15 minutes as needed, up to 3 doses
  • If needed, you can give 3 doses no more then 4 times daily, for a total of 12 doses

Camilia helps with the dreaded teething irritability, restlessness, and painful gums.I think this stuff is amazing! When my daughter was getting her molars, she would ask me for her ”toothy medicine”.

Will Homeopathic Teething Remedies Cure Baby Teething Pain?

There is no cure for your babies teething pain. Every teething baby is different, and what works for me, might not work for you. What works for your son, might not work for your daughter. I recommend that you read what ever you can about different teething remedies and try a few, see what works for your baby. It will probably take some trial and error, but you will find some great solutions that make life easier for you and your teething baby.
