Take the bite out of your toddler's sore gums with homemade teething treats -- nearly frozen versions of her favorite fruits and veggies. Cut bananas into spears; steam peeled wedges of apples and pears until tender, 2 to 5 minutes. Freeze on a baking sheet; transfer to resealable plastic bags for up to 1 month. Thaw 5 minutes to soften before giving to your child.

What a great tip for a teething baby. I wonder why they need to be frozen for a month. My baby is teething now, so I'm going to try freezing them for a few hours, maybe over night.
