Natural Marshmallow Root Teething Sticks
By A. Devia
Marshmallow root produces a mucilage that soothes inflamation. Chewing on a prepared marshmallow root stick can help relieve pain and irritation for a teething baby.
To prepare a marshmallow root for teething, cut to a length of approximately four inches. Wash and dry. Peel off the bark and trim off any shoots or nubs to create a smooth surface.
Be sure to monitor baby while chewing on these, like you would any food. Choking is always a potential for anything a child puts in their mouth.
