  • Tylenol. Baby Oragel or Baby Anbesol. Teething rings. Even a washcloth that you've wet and put in the freezer, for the baby to suck on. I'm not sure how old your baby is, but it's possible you can alternate Tylenol with infant Ibuprofen (ask your pediatrician). Goodluck!

  • I always gave my daughter tylenol to help with the pain. The other thing that worked was putting her pacifiers in the freezer. The cold always helped especially right before bed or nap time.

  • My little girl use to like to chew on a warm rag but I also gave her baby orgel but not that much. Everyone told me to give her something cold and she didn't like it so i don't know about that one you can try but i wouldn't

  • Highland's Teething Tablets have worked wonders for our son. I'd stay away from baby Orajel though. Not only does it taste horrible, it actually toughens your baby's gums, making it harder and more painful for teeth to pop through.
