What do I do for my child who is teething?

This is a very common question around the 4-6 month period, and can be an issue through the first couple years of life. Over the counter, homeopathic teething tablets that dissolve, amber teething necklaces, Motrin (ibuprofen) as needed over the age of 6 months, cold teething rings, and Clove essential oil (diluted and please discuss brands with us before using clove) are all common remedies to alleviate teething symptoms.
