I read this post on Rookie Moms, suggesting using frozen breastmilk to sooth teething pain. Little Peach had his two front teeth come in on Christmas Eve. He was miserable. I was willing to try anything. Amazingly, rubbing the frozen breastmilk on his gums calmed him down enough to get him to sleep - which really is the best medicine. (This is a particularly good use for the store of breastmilk in my freezer, since H has boycotted the bottle since month 6.)
Hope this little trick works for you. You can also hop on over to Rookie Moms for a few more tricks.
