Did you know that babies get a new tooth about every 2 to 3 months until their second birthday, by which time most will have 20 teeth. You’ll know when your child’s ready for their first tooth because they’ll drool more and appear uncomfortable; in fact, some babies begin teething as early as 4 or 5 months old.
It is natural for your baby to want something in their mouth to soothe their gums and teething biscuits are great for this. They help to relieve pain while also stimulating little ones to use their hands and explore their surroundings.

However, before you reach out for the store bought rusks or teething biscuits you need to check out this recipe! If for no other reason but to save you money! If your child is a bit older you can still make these as a nutritious snack or even better as a healthy breakfast for baby led weaning too!

Teething Biscuit Homemade Recipe for Babies

These little teething biscuits are the exact ones I used on all of my babies when they were teething. They are packed full of simple and natural ingredients and make a super healthy recipe for your baby.

Why you should give your Baby Banana 

The recipe is made using a wet mixture of mashed banana which contains potassium, niacin and they also will give your little one a huge energy boost. This is especially important if they have gone off their food due to teething. 

Why you should give your Baby Oats

Oats are one of my favourite ingredients for babies and it is with good reason. We go through an entire bag of oats most weeks and I include them in pancakes, breads and of course breakfast bowls.  Oats are incredibly nutritious! Firstly, they are a rich source of iron which is essential for growing babies and toddlers. Oats are also high in potassium, calcium for healthy bones and teeth, magnesium which also plays a role in bone and teeth health and also zinc. Oats ALSO are rich in vitamins too! 

The best part though is that oats are super inexpensive to buy! I get a 1kg bag in our local Dunnes Stores for just €1.

Best oils for baby led weaning

For me I just stick with olive oil mostly or if I’m making a sweet treat that needs to set, I will use coconut oil. 
Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats and there is plenty of research to show that a diet rich in mediterranean foods (such as olive oil) is the healthiest diet.

Pumpkin Seeds for baby led weaning

Pumpkin seeds are one of my favourite seeds for babies and can be served ground down into a fine powder to keep them super safe. They are truly little powerhouses and pack a HUGE nutritional punch! Again they are very inexpensive and a large pack will only set you back about €1 and they go a long long way.

Pumpkin seeds are a really good source of ALA (alpha linolenic acid) and this is really beneficial for heart health. Great for us parents too! 

Pumpkin seeds also are a great source of magnesium, iron, zinc and copper and are also contain protein too! AND as if these little teething bars couldn’t get any better…I’ve added in Chia Seeds!

Chia Seeds for Babies

Chia seeds expand and it is important to remember that your baby’s tummy is really tiny so make sure chia seeds are used in cooking and never given raw as a sprinkle on food. Using in chia puddings is perfect as the chia seeds have already expanded to their full potential 🙂 Chia seeds are one of my favourite foods. They contain calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and phosphorous and 25g of chia contains just over 4g of protein! Thats amazing and almost the same amount of protein as an egg.

The best thing though about chia seeds is that they contain omega-3 fatty acids and for us who are vegetarian these are really important. 

Are these teething biscuits safe for my baby? 

Yes absolutely! These little biscuits dissolve as your baby gums down on them which makes them really safe.

How to store a teething biscuit?

Store in an airtight jar for up to one week. These don’t really freeze well as they turn soggy after they defrost so make fresh where possible.
