The dark bit to the left of the image is his first incisor. Which explains his Obama-esque attitude these last few days.

     I never found teething gels to be very effective, but you might try acetaminophen. And chilled teething rings. Good luck – the first tooth is the hardest one, I think.

    My mother used to dab her finger in either vodka or champagne.

    Oh, indeed, it do.

     I still do.  It works even when your teeth aren’t sore.

    One trick I learned with my granddaughter (who I raised for most of her first two years as her mother was Airborne) is Slim Jims.  The jerky-sausage snacks have some spices built in that sooth the gums, while they are tough and chewy enough to teeth on. 

    Don’t cut them small, that could get swallowed, but the baby gums won’t bite through, they just chew it into a nearly flat piece of meat.  Then you cut off the end and let ’em go again when needed.

    You do NOT need to buy the “spicy” flavor, either – even the mild ones have enough spices to sooth teething.  I guess it’s the capsicin.

    Never doubt the old country people’s home remedies!

    Wow, never heard of that one.  Cool!

    Guess I was lucky.  My kid didn’t fuss when teething; she just drooled like a St. Bernard.

    Teething, eh? As the SCOAMFOTUS would say,
