Yogurt Teething "Popsicles"

This past weekend Penny's molars began their debut :( I can only feel one bump right now, but the poor girl is definitely uncomfortable!

Some moments are definitely worse than others (and I am so very thankful for her amber necklace, which has navigated us through some rough waters) so I started thinking up alternatives to simply medicating to help Penny get some relief. Washcloths soaked in juice and water have been old standbys for many moms, so I thought.. why not yogurt?

You will need:
A wash cloth
Yogurt of choice (we used Pomegranate Greek Gods yogurt)

You will do:
1. Fold the wash cloth into quarters and then diagonally to create a "point"
2. Dip the point into a cup of yogurt. It takes a few times to evenly coat and soak up the yogurt.
3. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
 4. Enjoy!

It's short lived, but a healthy treat (even when your baby isn't teething!).

Do you not just crack up when you see the sour look on her face? She's started doing that when her palate hasn't quite adjusted to what she's tasting.

Can you think of any alternatives to water, juice or yogurt?


  1. What a great idea. I'm glad my daughter is past teething, but I'll keep this in mind for baby #2.

  2. This sounds like an awesome idea! My son is teething right now (but only just became 6 months so no yogurt yet!) I was thinking about putting a piece o a banana in one of those mesh feeders and letting him chew on that!

  4. We made yogurt coconut milk popsicles, and they were a big hit for the teething crowd :) .

  5. Saving this idea, and a few others!!

  6. This is seriously GENIUS!! My son would never take a teething toys and I bet its because it was freezing cold, hard and didn't taste like anything!! This is an amazing idea I am totally using for my next!!

  7. This is a great idea! I would have never thought of it.
