Q&A: Are Teething Tablets Helpful?

Do teething tablets really help? What do they do?

Teething tablets don't work! Some even have medications that aren’t safe for children. Since babies teethe from 6 months old to 2 years old, I don't recommend medication at all. Cold washcloths or cold teethers are a safe alternative.
