My 7 month old daughter is teething big time. We do what we can to make her comfortable: teethers, cold wash rags, maybe even a bit of tylenol at night to help her sleep, but we try not to keep her doped up.
MIL was over to see the baby, and she asks, “Can’t you give her anything for that teething?” in a rather accusatory tone.
“We have some cold teethers…” I answered and started for the fridge.
“That’s not going to work. Give her some schnapps.”
“Um, we don’t have any.”
“Then you need to get some!”
I think we’ll stick to teethers and tylenol, but I didn’t bother telling her that.
