I don't know what to put in it for my grandson its a net for food & they can suck on it & not get pieces of food in their mouths. He's only 5 months old and teething bad.

oh almost forgot... cold refrigerated celery works wonders for teething. keep the strings in and they cant really get much in their mouth but really enjoy chewing on it. Also it is a very geltle food with almost no nutrition other than a little vitamin C. Just cold and refreshing!

I place an ice cube in my daughters. It soothes, and it drys without a mess. Be cautious to run a little water over it before you give it to them, just to make sure it doesn't do that "sticky thing". (Can't think of the proper term for that)

You know I didn't think about that when I posted but Katherine is right. Is he eating solids yet? If not I would try a washcloth like she said or cold teething rings.

Ive seen those at walmart and i guess you can put any kind of food that you think they would choke on. peas, meat, any kind of food in chunks. but i think those are meant for older babies.

Apple, watermelon, anything hard he can chomp on or suck the juice out of. I would not recommend banana!!! And actually I'm not sure you should start solids. Did your daughter/son say he is eating solid food? Wet frozen washcloths work really well.

There is a product here called a nubby - mesh bag attached to a handle - hope this helps! I used to use a muslin wash cloth before I managed to find one tho!

The cool thing about those nets is you can put almost any food in it. For teething I would try cold or frozen fruit. Beware though, it gets VERY messy!!

I put pieces of apple in my son's. He didn't like the peaches though. Or banana, but that might not do anything for the teething.

I use one for my daughter and I have used watermelon, rockmelon and banana etc...I find the banana to be nice and soft for their little gums however very messy to clean!! I invested in one that i have found replacement bags for..so much easier!
