My baby started slobbering early too but he didn't get any teeth for a few months afterwards. You can give her other things to chew on like a damp washcloth that has been in the freezer. Wooden or silicone teething toys are also good.

How about washing and shaving a carrot (cutting off the ends so she doesn't accidently choke on them) and letting her chew on it? It might give her keratin and something she can't chew through. It would also be better cold, which could feel good on her gums if she is teething.

I have some teething rings they just seem so hard for her right now as she will be five months in 2 days, she has little interest in them, for a few seconds and she makes funny faces at me like what are u giving me mom!! lol But i will definitly try the frozen wash cloth, i was just worried that it may be too much water for her to take in? What do u think?

If you wring out the washcloth very well, it won't be very wet. It actually freezes better and is easier for baby to chew on if it isn't very wet before you put it in the freezer. You don't have to leave it in there very long. If it's completely frozen and hard, baby may not want to chew on it.
