Topical anesthetic: The baby will eat when hungry enough. No need to coax or worry. SOFT foods and COLD foods will make it easier. Teething on a liquid-filled ring just out of the freezer will keep the inflamed tissues around the teething area more comfortable. Using an over-the-counter anesthetic such as Chloraseptic liquid painted with a soft cloth or artist's brush can numb the area temporarily.
