I swear teething goes on forever, disrupting sleep and making babies irritable. Somewhat by accident, (an accident named Eleanor), my baby recently got a hold of an apple. She carried that thing around for at least an hour, sucking and chewing. Later I found it on the floor, so I picked the half-eaten thing up and threw it in the trash. About a half-hour after that I saw Wynnie with the same apple again, happily sucking and chewing again. She’d fished it out of the trash! (And yes, I let her keep it.) So today I give you my new favorite teething tool: the apple!
