A teething baby is no fun. And a teething baby that is being breastfed can be just plain scary for mama. Babies will do anything to soothe their gums, which includes using your nipple as a teething toy. An awesome solution I found was to make these teething popsicles!

Teething impacts their sleep. It can turn the sweetest of babies into a little grizzly bear. So what can you do about it? Well, you can grit your teeth and just deal with it. Or you can use the tools available to you!
I personally have a teething baby girl who was very intolerant of the pain she had while teething. I needed help!
When I came across these popsicle molds on Amazon, I figured why not give them a try. Since at the time, I was breastfeeding, I thought they would be perfect to fill with breast milk!
For the price, I really had nothing to lose if she didn’t like them. Now, it is marketed obviously as a fruit popsicle tray, but you can fill them with just about anything you could think of.
What I did to make teething popsicles with breast milk:
- Will need about 4 ounces of breast milk
- Fill each spot with 1 ounce
- Snap the handles into place
- Let freeze (usually takes only a few hours)
- THEN once ready– Run the outside of popsicle mold under water for a few moments & the pop will slide right out!
Other teething popsicle ideas:
- Fruit Juice
- Fruit Puree and Milk
- Whole Milk
There are so many ways to use these!
If you are looking for a good way to help soothe your little ones gums while teething- you should definitely give these popsicle molds a try.
The first time (like everything else) my baby was confused when I handed her the popsicle. But once she got the taste of the breast milk- she was HOOKED!
This popsicle is the perfect size for your 6+ month old baby. Not only will it help their gum pain, but they are getting nutrition too! It is a win-win.
The handles are the thick and sturdy for baby’s little hands to hold. They are BPA free and they are super easy to wash. I have used this popsicle mold time and time again- so it is very durable in my experience.
We will usually give our baby one of these as a dessert item. They are especially good for the hotter summer days as a way to cool off.
Make sure to always have your baby in their high chair while eating anything. And you will definitely want a bib on them as they will drool/drip.
Teething Popsicles are the ultimate teething remedy!
