Inspirational Mum’s! Your Teething Baby: From one parent to another

IMG_8535 (3)

My name is Emma Reed and I am a married Mother of one. My son, Jake, arrived as a fantastic Christmas present on 25 December 2013 and is now a very active toddler, keeping me very fit and always on my toes! I was lucky enough to be able to give up work to become a stay at home Mum once Jake came along and I love getting the quality time to spend with him.

During his growth he suffered terribly with his teething and I struggled to find help, support and advice even after speaking to doctors and a dentist. I began to research this development myself and found I became quite an expert! A friend once said to me ‘you know so much, you should write a book!’ and from that the idea just grew and one sunny day last August I began to write and never stopped. I would write and research whilst my son napped and in the evening. I have learnt how to create the covers and layout, I have carried out all of the research, as well as sourcing the images and speaking to every company I have written about. It has been a labour of love to try and get all the information into one place for other parents to be able to refer to and to be able to help.

I have included all the information that I felt I would want to know about teething- I think it is an area that is very overlooked, but considering every person goes through it in their lives you would think we would know a lot more and that more help and advice would be offered.


The book includes sections on what teething is, the order teeth appear, the history of teething, the remedies currently on the market, old wives’ tales, remedies from around the world, symptoms and oral care. I have also included parents quotes to give a personal touch. I really hope it can help and reassure many future parents.

The book is available on Amazon as a paperback for £10.99.

    Bought the book. Badly written and lots of it not applicable.

    Seems like this young lady doesn’t have a job and thought she could make a bob or two fleecing people out of cash.

    Hi Joan, I have only just seen this and hope you can see my response. I am very sorry that you were not satisfied with the book. I assure you that all of the information is well researched and backed up. Every company I wrote about gave me their input, images and checked the book before it went to print. They are all very happy with the product and some have run competitions on their own fb pages to help promote it. All info has been written from my point of view and it is how I would like to read something- one parent to another. I worked very hard on this book and wrote it whilst my son was still teething. Thank you very much for calling me a young lady, I am much older than I look. I am in no way trying to make a bob or two out of people, the book world does not make you rich. I was simply aiming to help other parents going through a tough time, as I hope you have read for yourself. No I do not work, but this is my choice. I want to be at home for my son and this was a little project that helped keep my brain active and I really was spurred on by the idea I could help parents where I could not find any.
    I hope you can understand now where I was coming from in writing it.
    Emma 🙂

    I think it’s highly commendable that one mum would want to help others by publishing her own experiences. It takes guts and a lot of effort to put that into print. What a shame something representing the sisterhood of women has been reviewed with such negativity. C’mon ladies, lets support each other. Being a mum is tough enough….
