When Dr. Angelika Rampal’s infant daughter pointed to the fridge, she knew she wanted a dependable teething remedy. The Virginia-based pediatrician sliced up fruit and let her daughter gnaw on oranges, grapefruit and pear slices to ease the pain. The fruit offered a sweet snack and helped soothe her daughter’s gums. “Kids love that stuff, and an orange peel is healthy,” she says. “I prefer to make my own teething remedies—it’s a healthier option.” Be sure to stick to foods that have already been introduced to your child's diet to avoid any potential allergy issues.
