When baby is teething: using whiskey.

Most people might not like this, but I think it's a great remedy if the baby is having a hard time teething. I'm seriously considering this for Lucas right now. My mom did it with all of us kids while teething because our gums were basically purple! We're horrible teethers in my family haha. All it does is numb the gums and relax them really well so the teeth can pop through. Just put a little on your finger and rub the gums. DO NOT just give it to the baby to drink or put enough on their gums where it's going to drip in their mouths!!!!! Just get your finger wet with it and rub. Nothing else!! You do NOT want your baby to drink it!!! That's why a lot of people don't like this method and choose something else first. There are a lot of other great remedies out there!!!! :)

    We don't keep it in the house, but I have tried it at my sister's when my oldest was having issues teething. Honestly, it's better for them than the teething gel-no added sugar- and does the same thing. It only takes a tiny drip. The 'old school' methods seem to help a lot more than some modern medicine methods.
