Rubbing whiskey on a teething child’s gums is safe and effective to help soothe their discomfort?

FALSE

While past generations commonly did this to help with teething discomfort and pain, there is no amount of alcohol currently thought by a majority of medical experts to be safe for infants.  Instead, you may try other remedies like massaging gums with a washcloth, drug-free methods like rocking, singing or safe distraction, or an appropriate dose of an over the counter pain reliever (if approved by your child’s doctor)
