DIY: Teething Toy; Boo Boo Bunny

2:52 PM

Have a sad teething baby? Make them a boo boo bunny.

When we were little our mom made us a boo boo bunny when we got hurt. Here I am today doing the same thing for my teething child only a little different.

The original boo boo bunny when we were kids was used as an ice cube holder for scraped knees. Since you can't give a baby an ice cube, we will just roll up some yummy stuff in the middle and wet it down a bit with cold water to soothe those gums.

All you need is a washcloth, some water, applesauce, and a sturdy elastic.

Roll up your washcloth like this with some applesauce in the middle of it.

Add a little more applesauce.

Fold it in half like so.

Fold back the "ears"

Tie around bunny "face" with elastic.

My teething baby loves the wet bunny the best. It's just a wet washcloth rolled up without the applesauce. You can place it in the freezer to make it extra cold on their gums.
Happier baby :)
