Rum for infant teething?
Question by Barbi & Logan: Rum for infant teething?
My husband suggested last night a “tip” that his 70 yr old boss told him: To ease a baby’s teething, rub a lil bit of Rum on the gums. It’s supposed to take the pain outta the gums, your just supposed to rub a small drop only on the gums. (his boss swears that it works, my husband doesn’t know alot about babies)
okay : I WOULD NEVER EVER EVER DO THIS, but ……
has anyone else ever heard of this? would you try it? is there any truth in this “tip”??

SoGlam- you must not read very well, As I said : I WOULD NEVER DO THIS! i know its not good for babies. duh
Answer by Mommy of a teen and a toddler
my mom told me that she used to dip her finger in whiskey and rub her finger on my gums..so yeah i heard of this before…now of days they have the baby orajel and other products to help ease the pain of teething..so i personally wouldn’t do it…but when i was a baby that is what the mothers did
