Make Homemade Popsicles
A Great Baby Teething Remedy
Yup, my favorite baby teething remedy. And yes, it is a really fun, healthy, and yummy treat to feed to baby. She'll love these popsicles and so will the rest of the family!
Use the recipes below to make your own ice pops. Some include ingredients like chunks of fruit. If your baby is not accustomed to chewing yet you may want to puree the fruit first. Or you could simply use a mesh safe feeder. Check out the baby teething remedies section of the site for more on mesh feeders.
You'll be making these homemade popsicles and freezing them, so you'll need something to hold them in while freezing. One way to do it is to use dixie cups and popsicle sticks. You can even substitute plastic baby spoons for the popsicle sticks.
Another alternative is to purchase a frozen treat tray set. This kind of set is reusable. They generally come with six plastic containers to pour the liquid into, with lids that have sticks attached for gripping the ice pops. Very convenient! They take up less space and can go through the dishwasher.
