Hi Justin & Sydnee,

Listened to the teething show with great sympathy for the old timey people who tried anything and everything to help their babies with the teething. While I never worried about it being life threatening, when my daughter was a baby, teething was an absolute nightmare. Not only did it take forever for the teeth to come through (literally years) but she was in so much pain! She wouldn't take any teething rings and instead chewed the inside of her cheeks until they were raw and bleeding and covered in canker sores from the corners of her mouth back to her throat. And yes, often with fever and diarrhea. Probably because her mouth was almost constantly infected.

This went on pretty much constantly from the time she was 4 months old until she was about 3 and a half.

It was awful! I kinda wish white poppy had been available. If not for the baby, at least *I* could have gotten some sleep.

Love the show!

Another idea for a show could be Mithridatism. You guys could discuss the history, the actual effects, what's gone wrong when people try it, etc.
I love the show, it's great, and I've been with you guys since the 5th episode. Keep up the great work.
