Pour over cloth wipes. Store in Tupperware/Rubbermaid container
Healthy Teething Crackers
- 1 cup whole wheat organic flour
- 1 cup dry infant rice cereal ( I like Earths Best Organic rice cereal)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons applesauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons organic olive oil
- ice water
Heat oven to425 F.Start by mixing the whole wheat flour and cereal together. Gradually stir in the applesauce. Mix a little ice water at a time (start with 1/4 cup) until dough begins to form a ball and pull away from the bowl. Roll out to the thickness of a cracker on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Bake on an un-greased cookie sheet 10-12 min. or until lightly brown. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Wheat-Free teething crackers
- 1/2 Cup Brown Rice flour
- 1/2 cup Whole Barley Flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Blackstrap Molasses
- ice water
Heat oven to 250F. Mix together brown rice flour and Whole Barley flour. Add the molasses. Slowly add water to form a dough. Roll out into cracker and cut into desired shapes. Place on cookie sheet, bake for 2 hours for a hard cracker, or less for a slightly chewy cracker.
Make your own Deo-Disks
- A mold (a round soap mold works fine, you can find these at Michaels craft store among other places)
- Baking Soda
- Essential oils such as Lavender or citrus
Mix Baking soda, a few drops of essential oils and slowly add the water to make a thick paste. Take the mix and transfer to your mold. Leave your mold to set out in a dry warm place. If you didn’t add too much water, a day should be long enough to let the mold stand to dry. You can wrap them in aluminum foil or saran wrap. Store in an airtight container, and keep ready for use. These are cheap and safe for the environment. They smell good too! ENJOY!
