  1. Teething babies really need those tips to make them comfortable. This is a good guide to young mothers.

  2. There are teething gels which will help babies be relieved from the discomfort. These are actually local anesthetics used by dentists before extracting a tooth to make it numb. However, the use of these teething gels should be minimal.

  3. Nice tips, I would not suggest any thing provided to kids for chewing though. It will only create hygiene and denture related problems.

  4. When I was a baby, my mother told me that she went to the pharmacy and got something called “paregoric” that she rubbed on my gum and it took away the pain, so that everyone could sleep. When I had our son, I thought it was worth a try, but when I went to the pharmacy, I was told that I couldn’t buy it, as it was now, classified as a narcotic drug! (oops)
