As a momma and dentist, I thought I had heard it all when it comes to how to relieve teething pain in kids. I definitely dish out these natural remedies if one is avoiding Motrin or Tylenol, but this news story was surprising!
A 28 year old Arkansas mother, Lori Sheppard, has recently been charged with child endangerment after she gave her 10-month-old son bourbon in a bottle.
KATV-TV reports that family members found the child unresponsive. He was flown to Arkansas Children’s Hospital with a blood alcohol content of .19 percent.
Sheppard told police she was trying to relieve her teething infant’s pain. She said she had already given him infant Tylenol and Motrin when her mother suggested she rub alcohol on his gums. The boy and his two siblings are now in the custody of the Department of Human Services.
What are your thoughts on this mommas?!
