  • Try a few teethers. they should do the trick. they do have some teething tablets to help sooth the pain, you can also use wshcloths, put some into the freezer wet, it will freeze and help as well, they will chew on the washcloths and it is alsovery soothing. we do this ith my granddaughter. works great!!!!! hope this helps. good luck!!!

  • They make this mesh teether thing that you put ice in, with a ring handle. My daughter used to like chewing on that. he problem with Oragel is that it can make the gums tougher so the teeth are harder to break through. I didn't know that till after my daughter got her teeth in already.

  • teething rings- preferably cold (put in freezer)
    Some babies like to chew on a wet washrag- just watch him close with it
