  • Tylenol for the pain, cold toys to chew on, if you have the mesh nets put ice in it and let the child chew on it. You can try orajel or teething tablets. Other than that the teeth will come in when they want, just look for the white dots in the gums.

  • We used Tylenol as well! Check with your pediatrician for dosing. If you use orajel, put it on a q-tip or thin it with your fingers - just so a glob doesn't go in baby's mouth. My son doesn't like teething tablets, but many moms swear by them! Give baby plenty to chew on - one mom I know gave her sons frozen mini bagels. Just be sure your little one is supervised. Good luck!

  • I found Teething tables made by Highlands, they are all natural so you can give them to the baby constantly and not worry about it hurting them. But it really helped my daughter, even helped her sleep!!! They are a life saver :) If they run a little fever you can always give Tylenol along with them.

  • We also use teething tablets, tylenol if they can't sleep but I hate to use the stuff. And give him/her a wet (but not soaking wet..) washcloth to chew on. It's been a hit with all four of my kids.
