How do you help a teething 6month old sleep at night?

My son has been sleeping through the night for the past 4 months, he recently started teething and has two teeth on the front bottom, now i think more are coming and he cant get to sleep at night, he wont go to bed til about 10 and then wakes up during the night crying some too. Any suggesstions? Will it pass? Ive tried tylenol, motrin, orajel, teething tablets.

  • My son is that way right now & he is 9 months. I've also tried everything but nothing seems to work. I usually end up rocking him, or sometimes he lays in bed with me and that seems to soothe him, hes a BF baby, so nursing or suckling helps him calm down. Its been this way for a month now and he finally has his top 2!
