  • He may also be working on the first molars. The eye teeth (the canine teeth) and the first molars come in around the same time.

    And yes, all you can do are the things you've done all along... tylenol or motrin, teething tablets, lots of teething toys in all textures, materials, and temperatures.

  • I know that this is going to get me bashed, and let me tell you that I am not a drinker but, you could put a "dab" of brandy on her gums. It numbs the pain really well. That's what they used to do in the old days before medicine and stuff. Just be careful to only put a dab

  • Let him chew on a damp wash cloth

  • My daughter is also 15 months old and has 12 teeth. And those eye teeth killed her too. I tried Tylenol and motrin and neither of them worked. So i started looking into what other things i could use or do to help. I found a product at walgreens it is called Gentle Naturals Homeopathic Teething Liquid It is a natural pain reliver for teething. It worked awsome! All natural no drugs. And also gave her frozen teething rings. Hope it helps

  • No booze is good for any baby in any amount. Tylenol should be fine and some maybe dipping a washcloth in water then freezing it and let him chew on that. Just know that this too shall pass! Hang in there!
