Breastmilk Popsicle

Now this is what I call using your own resources - making popsicles out of your breastmilk. Dylan's teething at the moment and I think it was not long after we started our Breastfeeding journey together that I saw a popsicle over on pinterest. I'm pretty sure it was done with a dummy, anyway I put it to the back of my mind as I thought we were a long way away from teething. I was wrong! Dylan seems to of been teething for the last few months, any day now he'll have his first teeth through. Teething granules/gel don't seem to be hitting the spot so my mind flashed back to those popsicles when I came across these gummy teethers that I use to use with Oli.

I expressed some milk into the lid of them and then stuck them in the freezer, we got it out a few weeks ago to use for the first time and it went down a treat with Dylan. He loved it. Not only did it soothe his teething gums but I think he loved the fact he was getting his milk at the same time. It gets a little messy so make sure you pop a muslin down underneath it to stop you from both getting soaked. Now that we've started weaning, I think I'm to have a go at making him some banana flavoured ones for him.
