Lucas is teething!

So, Lucas has had his bottom front two teeth for months now, with no other teeth yet. Well, now it looks like the top front FOUR are coming all at once. You can see a nice outline of them all right through his gums. He had no trouble with the bottom two, but these top four are killer! Abigail had no issues with teething. David said it was basically like she woke up one day and suddenly there were teeth in there!

So, my question is, how do you make the pacifier cold for the baby?! I'm assuming you put it in the fridge/freezer, but won't it make the plastic hard and break? How long do you put it in there? We have teething rings too though, I think he might like his binky a bit better lol. Any advice is appreciated! :D

    I cut up apples and put it in the freezer, or peeled bananas an put it in the freezer. Once they were frozen I gave them to my teething baby and it did wonders! The fruit is good for them and the coldness numbed the pain. There's also these teething net things that look like pacifiers but instead of a rubber nipple it has a net and you put cut up frozen fruit inside and they can chew and suck on them and it's really safe.

        Or maybe dip the pacifier in ice water for a minute or two so it's cold? Just use two and rotate them out. Then it won't crack them.

            Bailey has been teething really bad the past couple of weeks. We put 4 pacifiers in the freezer at a time and we just swap them out. I had one last night that was a little frozen on the handle, but I've never really had an issue. Plus she loves it. You can tell that it's soothing on her gums. It also helps because the teething rings that she does have are just to big and round for her to fit in her mouth right now, so the pacifiers work a lot better

              The frozen fruit sounds ingenious! The paci, will just warm up within minutes, with the fruit not only can he get some relief from the pain but can also be distracted by the fun of the fruit!

                All I can tell you because I sort of had the same issue with my youngest daughter Isabella, is to massage his gums, don't put the pacifier in the fridge/freezer, and use the teething rings as much as you can.
