  • Try teething tablets. They don't work for every baby, but they work for mine. I had never heard about them and some other moms on here suggested them.

  • Try wetting a washcloth and putting it in your freezer for a while. (I'd put about 4 in to start off) and when they are chilled let your LO suck on it. It numbs their gums and soothes them for a little while

  • Teething tablets work for my daughter. Also, try putting a pacifier in the freezer for a little while or hold an ice cube for them to suck on, or maybe an ice cold drink in their bottle. My daughter loves the cold feeling on her gums now that she's teething.

  • Hylands teething tablets work really well. My son(who is 10 months) also enjoys chewing on frozen peas as well as his discovery toys teether.

  • Cold teethers, wash clothes, teething tablets, or infant tylenol, amber teething necklace (not while sleeping though), a soft cracker

  • I have to agree with the Hylands teething tablets, or better yet they also make a teething gell that works even faster. My daughter also loves the frozen washclothes.. the Dr. told us to stay away from baby Oragell because of the chemicals it contains, if all else fails.. infant tylenol is awsome! Good luck!
