Less crying, more sleeping.
Young parents always want what’s best for their baby, but they also want what’s best for themselves – to sleep! Teething usually occurs within the first year after a child is born, a time where parents are already suffering from sleep deprivation. With a sharp tooth pushing through their tender little gums, it’s no wonder babies can’t stop crying!
If you’re searching for some much-needed remedies to soothe teething babies and help them sleep – we’re here to help! Read below to discover different ways to cheer up your cranky toddler in a flash.
