I’m guessing you have a teething baby and you are desperately looking for something to make both of you feel better.
Don’t worry. We have a solution for you.
Have you ever heard of a momsicle? It’s a breastmilk popsicle and it’s AWESOME for teething babies. We always say that breastmilk is the perfect food. This breastmilk popsicle is the perfect popsicle!
These popsicles for babies are the perfect size for little hands and filled with nothing but breastmilk so there’s no added sugar or extra ingredients. These can also be made with formula they are great for keeping your baby entertained for a while so they are great to have stashed away in your freezer.
First, why would you go with a breastmilk popsicle over just a regular popsicle you’d buy from the store?
Two very good reasons.
First, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends waiting to start solid foods until your baby is at least 6 months old to lower the possibility of triggering food allergies and to be sure that your baby is developmentally ready to digest solid foods. My babies have all had their first tooth by 5-6 months so we’re dealing with teething pain before we are really into solids. You’ll just have to help younger babies hold these.
Second, store-bought popsicles are absolutely the wrong shape for babies. They are long and skinny and the first thing your baby will do with it is gag herself with it. That’s no good at all.
Fortunately we have a solution for that. Go to the next page to find out our trick for making breastmilk popsicles that are perfect for young babies.
