Apple as baby teether
Our one year old daughter has found a favorite way to sooth her sore mouth when she's teething. We buy small apples in the grocery store, peel them whole, and then our daughter grabs the whole thing and sucks and chews on the apple. She is a finicky eater, so she mostly spits out the small bites of apple she manages to dislodge, but this has really helped her when we don't want to give her Tylenol.
[Just keep a close eye on your baby -- the chances of her choking on a too-large piece of apple are slim, but still... -- Ed.]
