I'd also recommend an amber necklace - it worked miracles for us. within an hour of putting it on, we saw a difference. It might be worth knowing though that many suppliers of amber teeething necklaces in the UK have ceased selling them temporarily because of an EU investigation which has caused UK trading standards around the country to ban their sale while the investigation takes place - all to do with the risk of swallowing. My personal feeling on the subject is that if you buy a good quality one where each bead is knotted or sewn in place separately, you should be fine. There are risks with anything you use.
