I strung up a necklace of whole allspice beads for my 4-month-old... he wears them all the time. It stopped the high fevers, fussiness, and most of the teething pain. It also tightened his gums right up so the teeth could just pop through.
My 11 year old daughter has her 12 year molars coming in. A baby cannot put words to teething pain (though they cry and we don't always know why! ) But an 11 year old can communicate her pain. I had her put clove oil on her finger and rub it on the pained area. Within a minute her pain was better and didn't even return the next day!
I have used clove oil on a baby's teething pain. It is best to dilute it half with coconut oil, but once I was not at home and only had clove oil. I put a drop of the oil on my finger and rub the pained area. It usually works very quickly! I am careful not to get it on the lips as it isn't very comfortable.

When my son was teething my father got something from the woods called a tredsetter root (not sure of the spelling) I was wondering where I might could find this and what does it look like?

I know the chances that someone will be able to help me with this are slight, but I'd still like to give it a shot... I have nerve damage in my face and as a result of several surgeries my jaw has shifted and my bite is totally off. Now an orthodontist told me that I have root resorption in several of my teeth due to continuous pressure put on those teeth. The teeth already hurt / are hyper-sensitive. I know this condition is probably not reversible, but is there a way to prevent further damage, improve the pain and possibly save those teeth from pulling? Many thanks, Oli

I used a silver dime with my kids and grandkids...it works...my oldest son used it again when his wisdom teeth were coming..and he didn't hurt.
get a real silver dime and drill a small hole in the top. Run a piece of yarn thru the hole. Make the necklace short enough that the baby will not choke on it. Have baby wear necklace while teething.
Hi i was reading about the teething stuff and i was gonna tell yall when i was a kid i wore eldridge roots that was made into a necklace.
EC: We can't find "eldridge root" on the search engines. Is there another name for it? Thanks so much!
WHENEVER A BABY IN OUR FAMILY STARTED TEETHING, MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD GET A SMALL LENGTH OF "YELLOW ROOT" AND CUT IT INTO 1/4 TO 1/2 INCH CHUNKS AND MAKE A SMALL NECKLACE. SHE WOULD MAKE THEM STONG ENOUGH SO THAT THE CHILD COULD NOT BREAK IT AND PLACED IT AROUND THE BABY'S NECK AND ALL DURING TEETHING PERIODS. THE CHILDREN NEVER HAD SWELLING OR PAIN FROM THE TEETHING!!
THIS IS OR WAS USED EXTENSIVELY IN EDGAR CAYCE'S WORK AND THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS USED IT FOR CHILD BIRTHING TO HELP THE MOTHER. MORE CAN BE FOUND AT EDGAR CAYCE'S HERBALS USE'S... GOD BLESS....
