Teethings tips for babies and toddlers - loads of great tips from other mums on how to relieve the agony of teethingTeething is up there with colic for heart rending distress for you and little one.

Not least because it can screw up all that great night time sleeping that they were suddenly getting very good at!!

Add to this the fact that every man and his dog believes themself an expert in everything teething and will insist on sharing their teething tips with you!!

There are simply loads of teething tips out there, but this is definitely an area where babies differ enormously.

The teething tips that worked for your mum or are working for your friend will not necessarily work for your little bundle.

Plus, said little bundle will suddenly decide your tried and tested solution is no good at all – got to keep you on your toes mum!

So I reckon the best thing to do is to have  for 4 or 5  teething tips in your repertoire ready to go that you can offer without any hassle if the first thing you offer doesn’t work.

To help you out I’ve pulled together a list of over 20 different teething tips …
