  • I always kept their teething toys in the freezer and am also a big believer in Baltic amber necklaces.

  • I just gave mine something to chew on and occassionally rubbed their gumms with my finger. Sometimes I put my finger on an ice cube before rubbing

  • You can get one of those oversized pacifiers the 12-18 month ones, squeeze the air out underwater that way the paci will fill up with water and stick it in the freezer. My son realy likes that, its small and light weight.

  • Luvmygrandbaby Yes i did. I didnt do anything wrong by not taking him in. I was not neglecting my child. He was having bowel spasms and there was nothing any of us could do for him except tylenol. Thank you for asking :)
