A soother for sore gums

Amelia is teething again, which means grizzles, waking up every couple of hours during the night, mouthing on anything and drool (copious amounts). This time round it seems to be worse, the top ones must be bigger ??? Anyway, the other day Amelia’s father was eating some icecream in front of her and the temptation was too great for him and succumbedto giving her some. Well the arms started flapping as she insisted she have some more and of course he did. I am sure she liked it more so because of the sweetness but I think the coldness was also soothing on her sore gums. I am not all that keen at continuing giving her loaded up sugar icecream so today I made some from greek yoghurt and fruit. It went down a treat.

Yoghurt swirl

    From recipes

  • 1 tblspoon gelatine
  • 2 tblspoon of hot water
  • 500 grams greek/plain yoghurt
  • handfull of raspberries, mushed (you really could use any other fruit)

 Mix the gelatine with hot water, stir until it is dissolved. Add it to the yoghurt and then stir through the mushed raspberries put into a container and freeze. I put it into ice cube trays which when set I will put into a zip lock bag and store in the freezer. When needed pull a couple out, let defrost for a couple of minutes so that it softens and serve.

The recipe that I got this from also suggests putting 2/3 cup of sugar into the hot water and gelatine (needs to dissolve), but I dont think its needed. Also I think that you really could get away without putting any gelatine in it, I may try it next time.
