Mom’s Milk Freezer Pops for Teething

My precious girl has been having some cranky days recently because of teething pain. We have some teething toys that can be refrigerated, but these didn’t seem to be doing much to soothe her pain.

Mom's Milk Freezer Pops for Teething | Mom’s milk freezer pops may be just the thing your baby needs to find relief for his or her sore gums. They are easy to make and fun for baby to eat!

I’ve heard some mothers say that they freeze washcloths dipped in breast milk or freeze milk onto pacifiers in order to create “momsicles” or breast milk ice pops for their teething babies, so I was thrilled when I came across these freezer pop molds for babies.
I ordered a set and made some mom’s milk freezer pops for Amaris. She loves them! The cold seems to numb her gums and help with the pain. I think she’s also distracted by the novelty of the freezer pops, so this helps get her mind off of any discomfort she is feeling.

Soothe Teething Pain With a Breast Milk Freezer Pop

The breast milk is relatively soft even when frozen and it melts very quickly, so I haven’t observed any large chunks coming off the ice pops that could be choking hazards. However, I would recommend you do as I have and always watch your little one while he or she eats these.

The freezer pop handles have drip catchers that prevent the ice pops from being too messy and the molds are dishwasher safe, so cleanup is easy! Though I’m only freezing breast milk in these for now, when she is a bit older I’ll freeze pureed fruits and veggies to make cool treats for her to enjoy on hot summer days.

If you don’t have freezer pop molds you can freeze breast milk in ice cube trays and place a couple of frozen cubes in a mesh feeder (like those pictured below) or you can freeze milk around pacifiers (see instructions here).

  1. This is such a great idea! I wish I had read this when my little guys were teething. I’m going to pass this onto a couple of moms I know who are going through the “teething stage” right now.

    • Hi Tennille,
      The freezer pops really do make a difference. I hope the other moms benefit from the idea!

  2. This is such a good idea! My kids never experienced a lot of pain when teething (just the fevers), but I could imagine this being a lifesaver to moms who’s kids are having a really tough time.

  3. Love this idea! I’m a new mom (little one is 3 months old!) and am dreading teething! I’m going to buy these now so I’m ready! Great post.

    Found you from the frugral crafty home bloghop. 🙂

    • Hi Lauren,
      Hopefully the teething won’t be too bad for you. If it is, though, these should help. 🙂

  4. This is a genius idea. I like it a LOT more than hard plastic. I haven’t had a baby yet, but I love having information like this in my arsenal for when I do. Thanks for sharing. (Found you through the Handmade Tuesdays link up!)

  5. What a clever idea!!! Thank you for sharing this on the Art of Home-Making Mondays! 🙂
