My little ones are always getting hurt, bumping their head, getting knocked over by the dog (or a sibling). One of the most difficult injuries to watch involves the mouth. There is no bandage you can apply, no ‘magic’ medicine, nothing you can really do…
That is, until I realized, I had frozen fruit always on hand. While I can’t get my little one to drink a cold glass of water when he bites his tongue, or have my baby girl suck on a teething toy when she has bumped her lip… I CAN get them to suck on a frozen strawberry. So, that is our newest quick tip.
Do you have a little one with a boo boo ON, or IN, their MOUTH?
Have them suck on a frozen fruit!
