Breastmilk Popsicle! Great for Teething!

by January Harshe on October 20, 2012

“My daughter, Violet, would always get jealous watching her older brothers munch on popsicles. So I made her some boobsicles! I froze some breastmilk in one of those tiny bottles that came with my breast pump, used clothespin to hold a lollipop stick in place, and voila! She absolutely LOVED it!” ~Jessica Campbell

I used to do this for my little one, but we used the mesh teethers so no big chunks could potentially break off and become a choking hazard. Otherwise, treating it like a popsicle is actually kind of dangerous.

Really wouldn’t it melt before it did any harm?

How fast does an ice cube melt? And are you really okay with your infant not breathing for 1-2 minutes while you’re waiting for a piece to melt?

Super cute pictures! I’m definitely gonna try this with the mesh fresh food feeder and freeze in a regular ice cube tray… such a great idea. thanks for sharing!

That is such a cool idea but how do you keep the breasts milk from seperating?

Anybody know if you can do it with formula as I don’t Breastfeed unfortunately. X

Instead of trying this with formula, if you can’t or don’t bf then I would use barely sugar’d water

So great!

Such a genius idea – I’m going to give it a whirl with my munchkin who’s just started teething and having such a hard time with it…I’m hoping that familiar yummy taste will help…
