A few years ago and way before I became a mother, I remember sitting on a plane that was waiting to take off while hearing a baby nearby screaming to no end. I mean, it was pretty awful and I was already regretting the eight hours long-haul flight in front of me with someone else’s kid screaming bloody murder right next to me.
The woman next to me quietly suggested that the baby’s mother should rub some alcohol on the baby’s gums adding that the baby was most likely teething.
Of course, I now know that administrating alcohol in any kind of way to your children is never a good idea, yet I often wondered what kind of methods other parents used for their children during those awful teething periods.
We need to be careful about the teething tablets and gels that we give our kids because according to the FDA, they’re not safe!
