When your baby is suffering from the pain and discomfort when they are teething, it can break Mommy and Daddy's heart! You might feel tempted to give your little one pain relieving medicines, but that can be scary. No one wants to give their precious baby potentially harmful ingredients, even if it is deemed safe on the label. What if you get the dosage wrong?
It is better to play it safe with the correct type of teether for your baby to chew on. Again, how do you know if the teething you that you give to your baby is chemical-free? Plastics are made with certain toxins, the list goes on and on....
Thankfully, TYRY-HU teethers are made with food-grade silicone. Not only are these teethers safe, but they are oh, so adorable! Plus, they really help to soothe baby's sore gums as they chew on them.
TYRY-HU has a huge variety of adorable teethers to choose from. They are very affordable, too. In fact, my stylish blogger daughter, Kendallyn, from Shop With Kendallyn has them listed on her baby shower registry! (She is due with her first baby, a girl, in July.) I bought her two of them (pictured below.) The ones I selected double as pacifier clip-ons, which help you to not lose baby's pacifier!
You can purchase the teethers here on Amazon!

When your baby starts teething, you definitely want to do everything you can to soothe and comfort them. You wish you could trade places with them, so they wouldn't have to feel the pain! It is tempting to give them some kind of pain relief, but how can you be sure that over-the-counter meds are safe? I always hated giving my babies Tylenol. It always constipated them. Thankfully, there is a solution.
Teetherpop™ is a brand new line of USA-made fillable, freezable teethers designed to hold water, purees, homemade smoothies, freshly juiced fruits and veggies, Mother’s milk or baby’s favorite drink.
You simply fill the Teetherpop with the liquid of your choice, and pop it into the freezer for about an hour. Teetherpop's flexible slits allow your little one to enjoy their thawing drink as they teethe! You can rest assured that your baby's gums are being soothed from the cold liquid as they chew on this handy dandy device. And maybe, just maybe- a breastfeeding mama may be able to avoid some painful bites!
Teetherpops are made from U.S.-sourced, FDA-approved, medical grade materials so they’re BPA, PVC, latex and phthalate free.
They also make a perfect baby shower gift!
Today turned out a lot better than I thought. It was sunny outside, so Braxton got to play outside all day long. He played out in the field with the goats, dog and chickens. SO cute to watch Braxton give them hugs. Braxton stripped down naked to play in the water using the hose on the trampoline. I am glad that Braxton got some fresh air, and got some of his 'little-boy' wiggles out. He's a spitfire, but he is truly the love of my life!
Boy, life has been busy from a motherhood point of view. I didn't really feel well this pastweek, but I managed the best I could. My husband, Jon went on his final salmon fishing trip of the season at the Deschutes and was gone Friday and Saturday. Fine and dandy, but I had to take my son and his new little girlfriend on their 'first date.'
I am actually glad that my year old son isn't driving yet, because that would just be another worry for me. He isn't pushing the issue (about getting his license) and so as parents, neither are we. So, for Jonathan's first date, he wanted to take his girl to the movies and hang out at the mall. Living out here in Estacada, however, means the nearest mall is 30 miles away. The movie they wanted to see was at 8pm and of course I didn't want to hang out at the mall for all those hours waiting for them, so I actually drove them to the mall at 5 pm and picked them up at 10pm. Lots of miles on the car, because I went back home to wait.
In a perfect world I would have stayed at the mall and shopped until I dropped, or leisurely browsed with my daughters. But, my toddler is a little demon who throws the world's most gigantic tantrums and I was already worn out.....plus no money to spend. That would not have been fun at all.
Today, I should say, this evening, my husband, Jon took us out on the boat at the nearby lake/resevoir. What a perfect evening. The water was clear and still and you could see to the bottom. It was Jon, me, Jonathan (15) Kendallyn (13) Myelie (11) and of course, Braxton, my wonderous toddler. The bigger kids went swimming, and Braxton thinks he is a big kid, too, so he did not understand why he could not just jump right in with his siblings. The children all wore their life jackets, of course and Braxton had his on, but I wasn't going into the water, so neither was he....(I am scared of fish or crawdads touching my feet, but it does not bother my husband or kids.)
My hubby did jump in, but he thought it would be too cold for Braxton, anyway. He did park the boat in a private setting and before their swim, and Braxton did get to wade in the shallow part of the water with his daddy. Jonathan also pushed him on the kneeboard we brought along. We BBQed hotdogs on our portable grill, and had a really peaceful time.
Braxton is such an adventurous little boy who is afraid of nothing. He is really loving water this summer, whereas about a few months ago he hardly liked to take baths. He didn't like getting his hair wet.
When Jon would drive the boat, Braxton was either helping Daddy steer it, or he was hanging over the side letting his hands drag in the cool clear water....as Mommy held onto him very tightly. "Let go of me, Mommy!" I wouldn't dream of it, but Braxton is fearless, of course! And, just to make note* He ALWAYS wants to be naked, but I am certain that is normal for his age, although he recently went through a small window of time where he was getting pretty modest.......go figure.
My toddler wears me out, but I would not trade these moments for anything. When we arrived home, Braxton wanted to jump on the trampoline and kick a ball which I kept retrieving for him. I ended up getting pretty tired after the 20th time, and got him to agree to go inside to settle for the night, but after an hour of cuddling, which to him means his age appropriate 'goodnight shows' and nursing........I had to have some ME time, so I pawned him off to his big sister and bribed her to bathe him....thus a moment for me to write in this blog.
I hear him hollering now, so I'll try the nite nite routine AGAIN and hopefully it will work this time around!
My goal is to get this child to bed at a regular time and not have him be the boss, but right now I am too much of a pushover and Braxton knows it:) That goal my never be achieved, but I can always hope. Goodnight, I think:)
It is a very warm day, I am drenched with sweat, but blissful. I just took my four children, or to put it in better perspective, they took ME on a nature walk. My little two year old, Braxton is an amazing child. Just to oserve him in nature is a beautiful blessing. My oldest child, Jonathan suggested we all go down to the creek in our 5 acre yard. So along with my kids (my two daughters and my sons) we took a great nature walk. Braxton had never been down to the creek (I hadn't either.)
We had to go down into the forest in which was so peaceful. We found pretty blue egg shells, and Braxton squished them in his little hands. I was certainly wishing I had brought along my camera as I watched Braxton playing and discovering his world. He did not hesitate to follow his older siblings into the shallow crystal clear creek. So amazed was I to watch my baby splash in the cold clean water. After he got the hang of wading from rock to rock, he really enjoyed himself playing with sticks and maneuvering around the lovely creek bed.
My girls were making their way upstream and Jonathan, my almost 16 year old had fun helping me with his little brother. We only decided to head back when Braxton pointed to something and exclaimed, "SPIDER!" I about shot up through the trees like a rocket when I saw a creature that looked like the hugest water skipper/bug/trantula I'd ever seen, so we got out of there. (Even Jonathan was creeped out.)
Following Braxton back up the hill to our house, I watched him trudging up the trail like a professional trail guide (as tough as nails in bare feet) I am so thankful to have a young child who is just beginning his adventures in this great big world . Witnessing for a moment my sweet boy's innocence in harmony with nature made the world perfect to me:)
My little boy is asleep now. Alas, now that I have time to blog, I am myself pretty tired. I did manage a shower tonight and I feel that I smell fresh and clean for once. I used some new products that I love and will soon put on my up and coming review page.
I feel pretty happy about living in this beautiful country of Estacada where that five acres we have are so green and gorgeous. We are living our little dream of having animals. I have a dog, a cat, a very sweet Muscovy duck who wags his tail when he sees us. I have for goats, two of which are so sweet they let my two year old hand feed them. ( The others are still shy.) Oh, and five baby chicks.
The evening was so gorgeous. My husband and oldest son rode the atv and dirtbike, my girls built forts under the pretty tall pine trees, and I took a couple of picds. that I'll need to post soon:)
