Clinical Tip: Cold comfort for teething babies

When my daughter was teething, I used "ice binkys" to ease her discomfort. I held the pacifier under water and gently squeezed the tip to fill the bulb half way, then put the pacifier in the freezer. My daughter loved the cold sensation on her gums and happily chewed without discomfort.
