  • When my daughter was teething, they had these cool little teething nets (I want to say Munchkin made them). We would put things like frozen grapes, strawberries, watermelon ect. in it. She would gnaw on those things and loved it. She got all the vitamins and nutrients of the fruits without actually eating them.
