Make your own baby rusks

Teething babies want to chew all the things. Here’s a cheap and easy way to make baby rusks at home in just two minutes.

Mum’s Grapevine Baby Group member Eliza has been making her teething tots these baby rusks for a couple of years, and she says they just love them.

“I was trying to find dairy-free rusks for my little one, my first child a couple of years ago because he’s lactose intolerant, and the lactose-free ones are so expensive. So I was looking at alternatives and I found this great alternative which is just using bread.”

Eliza says for babies really struggling with teething, try this cooling option: “Babies do like them cold so I’ll often take it out of the freezer and just let it sit for a couple of minutes and then give it to bub while they’re teething. They loved it.”
