i second the teething necklace. it has been a miracle for my dd, truly. i was skeptical, too, but i bought one and figured if it didn't work then at the very least she'd just have a nice necklace! but the truth is, i can't imagine *not* having it now. she's teethed the bottom two and working on the top two, with a little discomfort, but drooling has ceased and her discomfort is simple enough to solve with a little nursing or something cold. i highly recommend them and wish i'd had one for ds, 3 years ago. ours is from inspired by finn. oh, and the trick is that they have to stay under your LOs shirt. body heat warms them up and releases succinic acid. hth!
