    Screwy Liquor on gums..

    Advertisements
    for teething. My SIL told me to try it. I don't know that I want to do it. I do the teething tablets, tylenol if I need too, teethers, etc. Has anyone else ever heard of it?

    Yep Whiskey was used on us. And my cousins and pretty much everyone in my family. And as far as I know it worked on everyone. It's totally based on your preference. It isn't enough for them to ingest and get sick from it. You won't have a tipsy baby rolling around.

    If you do it, I recommend not telling your pediatrician.

    It's a personal choice you make. I never had to do it; my husband turned my kids on to popsicles, which is probably just as bad in the grand scheme of things. However, I know a lot of people who have done it with no ill effects. Jus be prepared for a lot of not-so-nice comments.

    I've thought about it, but haven't actually done it, since no teeth are actually showing underneath her gums yet.

    But she's been uber cranky for like two weeks, so I think that Spawn is more into the "I'm just going to act like a shit" phase.

    I definitely have no issues with it, and will use it if I have to. DH and I have talked about it before. We just don't have whiskey. I wonder if tequila will work?

    I doubt I will do it, but I would be prepared for the not so nice comments. Like I said, I use the teething tablets, teethers and he likes his fingers. I was just wondering if anyone has/had done it

    We don't even have alcohol in our house.
