Ready to learn how to make breastmilk popsicles?
My babies have all LOVED breastmilk popsicles when they were teething. it becomes a sensory experience. Babies love to play with them, slide them across the highchair tray, and touch it.
This can get a bit messy because breastmilk melts fast but it’s certainly an easier clean up than when I set my twins loose on a tray full of solid food.
There are several ways to make breastmilk popsicles.
Before I go into my favorite method, I just want to tell you what not to do. So many moms (including me) make this mistake but it can be dangerous.
- Don’t use a full size popsicle mold.
- Don’t improvise.
I shared this idea a few years ago with an improvised method using a pacifier and an egg cup. This was the method I used with my older kids and I never saw anything wrong with it.
It was a bit tricky for my babies to hold on their own but I never thought it was unsafe.
The photo below is the original one I used when this post was first published. This little boy is now 8. It’s crazy how fast time goes by. He looks just like one of my twins too.
When my oldest daughter started teething I went to my go-to teething remedy — breastmilk popsicles. It was then that I realized that my old method of making them was a serious choking hazard.
It’s tempting to use what you have on hand, but don’t do it. I have a much easier and safer solution for you.
