Tips for How to Soothe a Teething Baby

How to Soothe a Teething Baby

For many parents, teething can be one of the most difficult stages of their baby’s development. Just when you feel like you’ve hit your groove and are on somewhat of a schedule, here come the baby teeth. Teething can cause all sorts of undesirable symptoms for your little one, like sore gums, constant drooling and difficulty sleeping. It’s enough to make even the most even-tempered baby cranky and irritable.

No parent likes to see their baby uncomfortable, and worse, feel helpless as to how to provide relief. While there is no magic cure for how to soothe a teething baby, there are some tried and true teething tips for soothing baby’s sore gums. Keep in mind, no two babies are exactly alike, so what works for a friend’s baby, may not work for yours. You may need to try different things to see what works best for you.

Prep for Halloween with these Super-Cute Costume Ideas

Halloween will be here before you know it, which means it’s time to get a head start on those costumes! We may be a little biased here, but we appreciate a DIY get-up so much more than a store-bought ensemble (especially because your little one may never wear that bag of gear again).

This year, instead of hitting your local Halloween shop, opt for homemade creations your kiddos will love to rock now and later! Thanks to us, October 31st has never looked better!

Read on for some seriously fun (and easy to pull together) costume ideas.

There’s nothing cooler than this far-from-scary skeleton mask. Your little one will want to wear it day-to-night – trust us! Pair it with some basic bottoms from NuNuNu (these are SO soft!), some spooky black Vans slip-ons, and a skeleton bones short sleeve tee and you’re set!

Lady Bug
Bug out! This ah-dorable little number will put a smile on everyone’s face! Start with the perfect lady bug mask, add a pretty black tutu, and a red leotard. Oh, and no ladybug costume is complete without a high-shine mary jane and glossy red lip!

Ahoy, mateys! It’s time to get your Halloween get-up in ship shape! No pirate costume is complete without the perfect pirate mask (complete with eye patch and beard!), striped harem pants (bonus: this pair boasts an elastic waistband and is handmade in Santa Barbara!), and easy, breezy tee. Grab a red bandana and a temporary anchor tattooto top it all off and your little one will be ready to walk the plank in no time (just kidding!).

Surfer Dude
Surfs up! The next best thing to riding those waves? Hangin’ 10 in this Cali-cool get-up! Start with a vintage raglan tee (we’re obsessed with the feel of this one!), some terry shorts, and this pretty darn cute trucker hat. Complete the look with Zinka Colored Nosecoat and get stoked for the evening ahead!

We’d love to hear about your DIY creations, too! Sound off in the comment section below!
