  • Sometimes there is nothing that you can do. Sometimes you have to let them cry while you hold them.

    In the mean time, try Hylands teething gel or teething tablets. Try Orajel. Try wrapping an ice cube in a wash cloth and let him chew on it. Try giving something hard to chew on, like a gerber biter biscuit.

    Good Luck!

  • rub his gums with your fingers... like hold him in your arms.. hug him kiss him and while you do that rub his gums. the pressure on it sometimes helps a little with the pain.

  • give him some beef jerky to chew on.. Its tough and he can gum it for a long period of time... Keep orijeln his gums, other than that you better get some ear plugs.. LOL

  • Poor baby - just hold him am cradle him, try singing as it helps to distract them. My friends baby is in the same situation and we sing her favortie song and she calms down and can be theraputic for you.

  • first off you have to relax because bvaby feels everythign that you atre feeling,second rock your lo sing dance do silly things make funny faces and if you are just SUPER frustrated put him in his crib and walk away. I know how dang frustrating it can be but soemtimes the best thing to do is give him orajel a lil bit of tyleonl for the pain and put him in his crib with chew things and walk away. then you give yourself a chance to calm down... the calmer you aret eh calmer it will allow himto be.

  • You could try a frozen waffle, but watch him closely so he doesn't choke on it
