DH recommended I buy licquor to rub some on her gums. He said it was the oldest trick in the book for relieving teething pain. I am going to buy her some hyland's teething tabs as I have heard good things about those. DH's grandma also recommended licquor on her gums as a teething remedy and even used it on her own kids when they were babies. I just don't feel right about giving her licquor even if it is a tiny amount and just enough for her gums. We dont even have any in the house. Anyone ever use licquor as teething pain relief?

No I'd never give liquor to my children.

Teething tablets, orajel, and tylenol/motrin is what we use.

It's an old wives tale. I personally use the teething tablets and sometimes tylenol on a bad day. Never anything else.

I'd never give liquor. What works best for us is our teething necklace.

No, I would never use alcohol to help with teething (or anything else for that matter!) although that is what they used to do "back in the day". The teething tablets work really well.

I've never used liquor, but I have used pure vanilla. It has some liquor in it, but tastes very sweet so my girls didn't mind it. Sometimes tylenol can be hard on their tummies. My girls anyway.

It is what they used back in the day before kids pain meds. We use a teething necklace, teething tablets (Humphreys or Hylands) and motrin if absolutely necessary.
