Dd hated those teething rings & ones you'd freeze, honestly I can't blame her the plastic sucked & smelled like plastic, lol. The only thing that helped her was I took a large carrot, peeled the outer layer, dipped it in water & then stuck it in the freezer for awhile. She'd naw on that until it was goopy, I'd chop off the soft area & then she'd chew some more. It helped numb the inflamed gums & at nap time/bed time I'd usually follow w/ a small dose of baby Tylenol if she was having a hard time sleeping.
