3-Ingredient Teething Biscuits
Prepared and photographed by NutraMilk nutritionist, Florencia Tagliavini.
These teething biscuits are tasty and have the perfect texture for your baby to practice chewing on and can provide some relief from teething. Made with only 3 natural nourishing ingredients that come together easily.
The alternative commercial teething wafers are more expensive and tend to have quite a bit of unnecessary ingredients. Spend just a few minutes per week to make a batch of these yummy biscuits your baby will love exploring with.

- 1 Cup oat flour (can be made from oats in the NutraMilk)
