  • I love the sassy teething feeder. You can put ice chips, apple peices, carrot peices in it and let them chew away on it. My daughter loved it when she was teething.

  • Rub the gums every night this helps the teeth to smoothly break through. Freeze an object that he plays with or bite often then let him chew on that for awhile.

  • I used homeopathic teething tabs that can be bought at walmart. No medicine, no drugs and it works.
