    Default Intense teething pain - is it a myth?

    Islander way is breaking the gums with a shell..... I've never seen/heard of it being done on a baby recently though. I think it's a thing of the past.

    Oh interesting to hear the gum cutting was done in other countries/cultures, this was in Europe in the 80's not sure if they still do it... I wonder what the pros & cons are...

    Depending on babies age the best way to cut their gums ( the nice way!) is to give them a rice cake or cruskit to bite down on, my naturopath said they will naturally bite down hard on food and cruskits are great as they are hard ( but will melt down in their mouth) and will naturally help the teeth cut through whereas teething toys etc they gum but are not hard enough to bite all the way through ( if that makes sense!)

    DS was BLW and he started gumming quinoa cruskits at 6 months , we never had any teething problems at all !
