I stop in the gas station every weekday to get my hot chocolate mixed with decaf coffee. This is my treat for the day. The clerk there knows I have a young son (3 1/2 months). He said the best relief his three babies got when they were teething was chewing on a mild Slim Jim. Yes, you read correctly...a Slim Jim. I said thanks for sharing this advice. In my mind I'm thinking...there is no way in hell!
