  • Orajel is great in theroy but the truth is the drool just washes it off. Try a cold teething ring or a vibrating teether. My dd and ds had one and it worked miracles when they were teething. You can find it here:

    I think they I bought theirs at Walmart.  Good luck!

  • Vibrating teether and Hylands teething tablets. Or you can let them suck on an ice cube. They have these things with netting that can hold the ice cube so when it gets small your LO won't choke on it, just get the liquid.

  • we loved teething tablets! they are affordable and seemed to soothe the pain longer than orajel! we also would wet a wash cloth and freeze it! she loved that! or i would freeze her passys! GOOD LUCK! :)

  • Something cold to suck on will do. I don't think you are supposed to freeze the teething rings, though. Just put them in the fridge.
