The joys of teething

Grace now officially has two teeth. Yesterday, there was only one! I put my finger in her mouth this morning and sure enough there was another one. She's actually handling it fairly well, but she does have her grumpy days. Yesterday she was fussy pretty much all day and nothing seemed to soothe her. I tried Tylenol, a frozen teether, and my finger. I wish there was something else I could do! The FDA now advises against the use of Baby Orajel for children under the age of 2, so we're not going to use it. I've seen the Amber teething necklaces, but I'm wary of putting anything around her neck! It would just be something for her to pull on and try to put in her mouth.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
