Re: teething

Just a word of caution with trying to advance the teething with abrasion (i.e. hard or splintery foods). My dental hygienist warned me that it can spark an infection which can end up being much more painful than the actual teething.

It's rare but it was enough to make me stick to a cooled gel teether ring for my son. Although we came out of the teething phase relatively unscathed.

My MIL had recommended bits of bread but that might have been done "in her day."
