For her first two months we warmed her bottles in a pot in the stove. But then we started giving her room temp bottles and warm it still sometimes before bed at night. She eats anything though. She doesn't mind either way.
Drooling yes, sticking hand in mouth, I let her chew on a chew bead necklace or if she seems really annoyed and uncomfortable I will give her teething meds. She has a bottom front tooth coming in and she is four months and three weeks.
Our doctor told us to use Eucerin lotion or petroleum jelly.
