  • I found giving the baby a dry wash cloth helped a lot. It feels good on the gums and helps the teeth come through. And bonus it soaked up some of the drool that comes with teething. To get them started on it I would rub the gums with the wash cloth and then give it to the baby. They figure it out pretty quickly. I would keep the wash cloths in the freezer.

  • The washcloth does work wonders. Also, oragel works and teething rings that go in the frig. They don't stay cool very long.
