  • When my daughter is teething we have our nightly routine, tylenol, orajel on top and bottom gums, and about 4 teething tablets, the combination seems to work pretty good for us! Plus she constantly has her paci in her mouth when teething lately, the rubbing of it must soothe her gums!

  • she might have something else if hes cranky cause my doctor says that when teeth come out it doesnt hurt but as you doctor if you have a concerns.

  • My parents rubbed whiskey on my gums when i was teething and they said it worked like a champ but I dont suggest that. That was 28 years ago. I say just give her time and keep doing what you are doing.

  • Frozen waffles are good or get him to chew on a cold clean wash cloth (put it in the freezer wet for 3-5 mins)

  • wet the wash cloth w/ apple juice, wring it out, freeze it and he willl suck/chew that longer. or go to walmart and in the baby section they have those mesh things w/ the little wholes and a handle to hold, take a favorite fruit and freeze it, then put it in that and let him chew on it. the wholes are very small so only tiny amounts will get through. They are no more than $2.50. good luck!!!
