  • I used Humphry's at first, it is only behind the counter at a pharmacy, I am assuming because it is a "high theft iterm" but when my son's molars were coming in I used something different, not sure who makes it but it just says Teething Tablets on it & it works great. Also you can use Tylenol if needed but I wouldn't use it often.

  • my four month old is going through the same thing. I use hylands teething gel, and give him a cool washcloth to chew on. It's easy for him to hold and the roughness of it must feel good against his gums

  • He likes when I dampen and freeze his face cloths. He chews on them and it helps with the soreness. I use baby orajel when he's having a really hard time, but don't like to give it often
