In brief: Treatment overratted

Teething is a subject that gets many parents very anxious.
I am of the opinion that over the counter meds treat parents more than the infant. I recommend cold teething pacifiers or toys. Teething is universally benign and may only require gum massage or teething toys-not meds.
