Teething -- Montessori Baby Week 46

This past week, some familiar signs have been creeping back into our lives; pink cheeks, runny nose, late night shenanigans, and an insatiable desire to eat our dining room table have been constant this week. These can only  mean one thing -- teeth. At 10 months old, Gus has six teeth, so we've been down this road before. And, just like with any other interest I notice in Gus, it's time to prepare the environment to fill his needs.

Typically, with teething this has meant, creating a treasure basket of different teethers and making that available to him. To create the treasure basket, I just pick a few (3-4) of our favorite teethers, place in an interesting basket, and make it available. Some of our common choices include:

Como Tomo | Winkle | Atom Rattle | Calmies Ball | Wooden Pacifier Clips {we have a couple different kinds he loves} | Rubber Pacifier | Thin Washcloth {get them wet, and freeze} 


Gus can often be found with one or two of these teething choices shoved into his mouth. Or really, anything shoved into his mouth -- haha! Oral exploration is so important and I don't fight it at all. But having a few things that are safe and easy for him to really chew on, really is super handy for these times when a new tooth is coming. 


Hopefully, this new tooth (teeth? I never really can tell) come quickly and the unpleasantness will be gone. But, I'm sure we will be using a teething treasure basket on and off for awhile!

How do you handle teething with your baby?

  1. That como tomo teether is my baby's favorite. I'll have to try the frozen wash cloth, that's a great idea!

    1. That is Gus' favorite right now too! When he was younger it was the calmies ball, but the Como Tomo is the best now!
