A Little Sweet Tooth:

FDA update: Benzocaine Products

by Julie David Talaiver on 01/22/12

Please be careful with teething gels for babies due to a risk of methemoglobinemia, a condition where the amount of oxygen is reduced in the blood.  The Academy of Pediatrics recommends to use a chilled teething ring or massaging your babies' gums.
