To calm a baby that needs comfort, fill a glove w/beans, pearled barley, etc, give baby a few pats with it, then leave it on the baby's back and slip quietly away. I wish I had known about this during all those years of patting and patting and patting and patting...what a great idea!
Dip a cotton ball into the lemon juice and baking soda solution and apply it to your teeth. Let the lemon and baking soda solution sit on your teeth for around a minute. Brush your teeth to remove the acid. I saw results the first time I tried this.
