Teething can be painful, and difficult on your baby/ toddler. With so many chemical options on the market, it’s difficult not to be tempted. Just remember, there are other holistic options that are much more effective — and not harmful to your growing child. My wife and I use organic CLOVE OIL. Just rub a dab on your child’s gums, and voila! Works like a charm every time. But beware — it doesn’t taste the best. Our daughter certainly doesn’t like the taste, but the sleep she gets from it (when the pain has subdued) is worth it every time.
