  • try baby orajel. rub it on his gums and then maybe stick one of those teething rings in the freezer and let him chew on it. it helps ease the pain

  • What they said. It was a Godsend when my daughter was a baby and teething.

  • I used Chloroseptic Max....one squirt on the gum area that was hurting, a dose of motrin, and an ice cube tied off in a wash cloth with a ponytail holder. This was my miracle cure for teething.

  • Teething tablets are another option. Although I'll be honest: NEITHER Orajel nor teething tablets nor cold chew toys got mine to sleep all night. That's a completely different matter and something they have to do on their own. You can only make things conducive to it but like the horse led to water, you can no more make baby sleep than you can make Mr. Ed drink.

    Hope he feels better!
