Okay...I'm not against buying whisky for teething, but that whisky would be for me, not baby!

This is absolutley crazy to me! And at first there was just mention of them getting a little on their gums, which I'm still against, but whatever...but then you mentioned letting them suck on it through a straw!!! That's more than wetting the gums...or freezing some wine on cloth...are you kidding me. A good sip of wine has my head buzzing and I'm a grown woman! The alcohol thing for babies is wrong on so many levels and it has nothing to do with being "uptight"...it has to do with doing the right things.

For those of you looking for legal teething advice, tylenol, teething necklaces, hylands teething tablets and if you must orajel. I only say if you must because it feels so weird in my mouth an d sometimes painful too...I don't use it on babies.

I was just popping back to say I found some teething strips at walgreens that dissolve in the baby's mouth. They don't contain aspirin or ibuprofen so you wouldn't be medicating. I've only used them a couple of times, but it seems to calm him down pretty quick for long enough that he stops fussing. The frozen washcloth is working for me though so I try to keep it simple. I hardly use medicine myself, so I also try to not give it to my baby.

You guys, don't even bother responding anymore. These are people from the Feb. 2012 PR trying to cause trouble yet again. JM isn't going to do anything about it either, (which is a shame since there was that big announcement about not posting in a DDC or PR that you don't belong to) so just put the ignorant, bored morons on block and move on.
