The FDA issued a warning against teething jewelry to prevent infant pain. There have been reports of choking, strangulation and deaths. Teething jewelry is made of amber, wood, marble or silicone.

Normal signs of Teething are – fussy, trouble sleeping irritability, Loss of Apetite and Drooling. Not normal is fever, diarrhea, or rash!

What to do? Try a cool spoon, moist gauze or look for teethers that are made of solid rubber, not liquid filled or plastics that may break. Do not use Benzocaine like Ora Gel-it can be associated with a fatal condition! Talk to your dentist or pediatrician.
