Here's what I like to do to comfort a teething baby.

Babies, especially when they are teething, love to suck on pretty much anything.

Get a clean washcloth, tie a couple knots in the corners.

Then wet the washcloth with either water or breastmilk, and freeze it.

The cloth won't get hard enough to damage anything.

It will be easy to grab, and not too cold for baby to handle.

Another idea is to let your little one suck on a chilled, soft tip spoon.

The coolness of the spoon will help comfort your baby's swollen gums.

NOTE: Be sure to place the spoon in the refrigerator to chill, not the freezer.

A frozen spoon might stick to your baby's gums.

Thanks to Ann for this Frugal Baby Tip!
