A few of my friends have babies who are about to embark upon the wonderful world of teething. I don’t miss those days—and we were lucky in that Eleanor was a great teether. Her teeth seemed to pop up without a whole lot of fuss. However, there were definitely days that she was in pain. It was heartbreaking and I felt really helpless.
So, for my friends and readers that are about to deal with the teething process, here are my tips.
Aside from these ideas, you’re on your own. Each baby is different. Some parents swear by the amber necklace, for example. I gave it a shot and it didn’t seem to make any difference. But who knows? Your kiddo might love it.
Be patient, offer plenty of cuddles and go with the flow.
