Let’s discuss ANOTHER old wives’ tale. . . “Brandy soothes teething pain”

That may be true, but no amount of alcohol is safe for infants or children.

Teething rings available at stores (many of which can be frozen in the freezer and reused countless times) are best.  For an inexpensive option I’d suggest wetting a washcloth, twist it until it is tightly bound and just slightly wet, and then freeze.  Then let your little teether gum it!
