I used to wet a towel from one edge and chill it and then give it to my baby to chew on. I saw he preferred that over the teething rings.

My little one would never hold a teething ring because it would be too cold for his liking. What he did love is when I would use my index finger to rub his gums! I could rub his gums for atleast an hour while we sit and watch tv!

We did all those things when are kids were teething too. You can also try keeping a washcloth in the freezer or even just run it over cold water.

Try wetting a washcloth and putting it in the freezer for a few minutes, that will soothe her gums. Also, there are mesh feeders you can use to put in frozen chunks of fruit- melon and banana work really well. Another idea is to just rub her gums with your finger.
