  • Get a washrag wet, wring it out good, and put it in the freezer for fifteen minutes or so. Let her chew on it while you are getting another one cold. It should help a lot. My daughter was a late teether, too.

  • you cannot stop teething, those suckers will pop up :) keep her as distracted and happy as possible. baths, books, bye bye, etc. frozen ANYTHING to gnaw on, make ice pops, frozen organic waffles (watch for choking) mesh bags of cold yummies and experiment w/ different teething toys, gels, creams, etc. this too shall pass. consider it a preview of the MOLARS because those are the true nightmare.

  • 9 1/2 MONTHS and you are NOW just worrying about teething?

  • Let her teeth on the bottom of a soda can. It gives them a cold hard surface to cut their teeth thru their gums.

  • Hyland's teething tablets are supposed to be awesome - I never used them for my son, but I sold them when I worked in retail.

    The washcloth trick is good too, and another thing I did with my son was to freeze those rubbery baby spoons and let him gnaw on those - JUST when he was in his high chair and with adult supervision, of course.

    My son started teething at two months but didn't get his first tooth until 10 months, so you can imagine how hard that was for all of us! :P
