Very helpful post. REal talk on this subject, I am raising 6 girls myself so I know how this can be an issue for some parent or some teen/preteen girls.
My 1-year-old had a mouth full of teeth before she could even talk. She started teething right between 4 and 6 months. She didn't have a lot of teething pain, thank God! But the baby Oragel was our best friend for the rare occasions that she did have pain.
