Orajel, baked potatoes and pink cats

Here's what I'm thankful for today.

This stuff is nasty, as soon as I tested it on myself I was sure I would never use it on a baby. It tastes gross and makes your mouth feel very unpleasantly tingly and numb.

But poor Zoe has been teething like heck and has been so so sore. She's only got that one tooth cutting through, but her gums are bulging and she's working on a bunch of other teeth. She's biting on everything she possibly can (me included, ouch) and is a complete grump head. When I give her some orajel she hates it at first, then she's nice and calm for about 20 mins after. So we've used it a few times.

If anyone can recommend a good homeopathic teething product I'd be grateful. I'd like to try something else. At the end of the day, she's sore and needs some relief, so nasty as this stuff is, if it helps I'm happy. But an alternative would be great too.

Kaya is thankful.

Lana is thankful.

Oh my gosh are they not the cutest little biscuits ever? The accents are making my teeth hurt, they're just so sweet!

We always used Hylands teething tablets. Helped my girls a lot. You can find them at Wal Mart or Walgreens.
