Thread: Green onions for teething???

    Default Green onions for teething???

    My husband's aunt recommended we give our 5.5 month old the long part of a green onion to chew on to help with teething discomfort. Has anyone heard of this or used this? He is still ebf. We haven't tried solids at all.

    I've not heard of it for the discomfort, but my kids have both *loved* nomming on green onions. When I'm working in the yard, I pluck greens from our walking onions and hand them to girlie.

    i have not heard of that before but when my son was under a year he loved chewing, licking or playing with whole raw onions, maybe it was soothing for the teeth? I have always wonderned what he liked so much about them. Nowadays though he hates onions in any form.
