Do you have a teething child at home?

Parents warned NOT to use any topical medications to soothe a teething baby.

Do teething babies need medicine on their gums? NO

American Academy of Pediatrics on Teething: 

American Dental Association:

What can you do to soothe a teething baby? 
Gently massage the baby's sore gums with your finger.

Provide something cool (not frozen) to chew on like a teething ring or wet wash cloth. Be sure that the object is not a choking hazard. It is not recommended that you provide anything frozen-- the hard, extra-cold object can cause more damage than good.
