  • you can buy frozen koolaid pops and poke a really small hole in the end. that way as he chews on the frozen pop it numbs his gums without him being able to get much more liquid than a drop at a time for flavor. I looved it with mine, hope it helps.

  • try the gerber teething biscuits. they are really hard and won't break off so there's no chance of him choking on them. he can chew on it for a long time.

  • Get a piece of natural leather. One that isn't stained/dyed. Place it in the freezer and let your son gnaw on it. It won't hurt him and the leather will stay soft instead of hard teething rings or ones that have fluid inside that could split open.
    You can go to a local leather shop and ask them if they have some scraps of leather.

  • They make these little mesh teething bags that you can put ice cubes, or frozen breastmilk cubes in. You can also put frozen fruits in them and babies can munch on them :) . I have a natural teething oil that is for topical use only called Gum-omile Oil by Herbs For Kids.

  • Both of my girls LOVED it when I put a wet wash cloth in the freezer, doesn't take long, & they would chew on that thing forever! Or until it wasn't cold anymore, but if my memory serves me, it only takes a min or so to freeze it! Let me know if you try this & if it worked for you!
