Try these natural teething remedies for your fussy baby.

Around 4 to 6 months of age, many babies start teething. This can be a fussy and irritable process for your child. Instead of reaching for a medication, though, you can try some natural remedies.

Chamomile offers soothing relief for your baby's gums. You can apply a tincture of chamomile or use the essential oil. Use one drop of the essential oil in one tablespoon of a carrier oil, such as coconut, and rub it on your baby's sore gums.

Another great natural remedy for a teething baby is clove oil. This product is as effective as benzocaine for causing numbing. The clove oil can be diluted at one drop to one tablespoon of carrier oil.

In addition to the remedies that can be applied to your baby's sensitive gums, you can also try soft silicone or plastic teething rings. Be sure to choose a teething ring or chewy toy that is labeled as BPA-free. You can even put these teething rings into the refrigerator to provide extra relief for your child's sore gums.
