Why does my baby refuses a chilled synthetic teether or anything cold that could soothe her gums? She prefers to bite either mine or her fingers instead. I can say she's teething cause she drools a lot and pulls her ears.

Every babies are different. Your baby may be one who does not like cold things. It is perfectly fine if your baby does not like chilled teether. You can introduce other teethers instead such as Sophie the Giraffe. 1. It has coloured spots on the Giraffe's body which make it more attractive to the baby. 2. The teether has many parts for baby to chew like ears, horns, legs. It is also very flexible. 3. It is make of 100% natural rubber and food paint which is perfectly safe for baby to chew. 4. You can squeeze the giraffe to make a squeaking sound. This can entertain the baby. My boy loves it a lot! You can get it from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Vulli-Sophie-the-Giraffe-Teether/dp/B000IDSLOG#productDescription_secondary_view_div_1455165966855

You know how we get "brain freeze" sometimes when drinking an iced slushie? I suppose it's sort of like that for our children - too cold. In this case, you could try using other sorts of teethers. I wouldn't use teething gel though because of the risks. http://www.whattoexpect.com/first-year/ask-heidi/are-teething-gels-safe.aspx In this case, try wooden or plastic teethers.

Babies are like adults, they each have theirnown preferences. My son absolutely hates anything cold and will throw it as far as he can if I give him cold teethers. He prefers gnawing on his bunny blanket, or my shirt when I'm carrying him, or his toys. He gnaws even the ends of his pillows and bolster hahaha
