  • Try frozen apple chunks in a mesh feeder, tylenol, a cold wet wash cloth to chew on, teething rings, a vibrating teether (i got one shaped like a star at Kroger and my daughter LOVES IT), teething tablets (orajel doesn't work...don't bother)

  • You can try Hylands Teething Tablets, or we used Herbs for Kids oil Gum-o-mile. If your child has dairy allergies, there is lactose in the tablets. Otherwise, you can get baby wash cloths damp and freeze them. Your baby can chew on these once they are frozen. A few of my friends used frozen waffles. Good luck to you and your little one.
