  • I do hylands, you can try a forzen or very cold washcloth, rubbing the gums, if its really bad you can do baby orajel. you can try a teething ring or some kind of vibrating toy. There are so many things out there you can try.

  • I use hylands homeopathic teething tablets and also read in a magazine that if you buy an electric toothbrush with a soft head and massage the gums with it, it will soften the tissue and the teeth will pop thru easier. Crest spinbrush is $6. My DD also likes to chew on a damp washcloth:) good luck

  • My dd never liked the teething rings because they never stayed cold long enough, but my dd loved to chew on those things that you can put fruit/veggies in the net kind of looks like a popsicle. I put ice chips in it and she really likes it.

  • My family doc recommended frozen bagels & my son loved them. He would sit in his high chair & gum them while I worked in the kitchen. Anything he did manage to scrape off the bagel was just mush & not a choking hazard.
