    Hi Everyone, just looking for a bit of advice as a first time mum trying to avoid Google...
    My daughter is 5 months old, she's not been herself now for 2 weeks or so, she's had a cold and rosy red cheeks, i'm guessing that she's after some teeth now.
    I just wondered what was the best thing to help keep her settled.
    Someone at a playgroup that we go to recommended an Amber anklet.
    I just wondered if anyone had any experience of using these before and if so, did it help any? If not, what other things like teething gels are worth a try?
    I've tried one gel so far and that seems to settle her for about 10 minutes. I think that she just likes the taste. Haha.

    Hello! I would say to follow your instincts and avoid drugs if possible. We used a muslin cloth for him to suck and bite on, the Gummee glove and also an Amber bracelet.
    Stick with it. Time will fly. My son is 3 already!

    Teething ring in the fridge, let her knaw on a piece of cucumber (she’ll be over 6 months now right?)
    Amber didn’t work for us but it does for many.
    We ended up our go to was Ashton and parsons powders. Not cheap but they were our saviour.
