My lo is having the worst time lately. She was up until 4am this morning just crying and crying. I was reading up on alternative pain relievers because I'm just not thrilled with the idea of giving my baby tylenol and I came across an article that said rubbing vanilla extract on their gums would help. I've never heard this before, but reading up online, quite a few people seem to swear by it. However, given that vanilla extract has some alcohol in it, I'm really hesitant to try this. Anyone care to enlighten me with any information on why I should or shouldn't try this? I hate to see my poor babe hurting! tia!
