  • Rub some baby orajel on their gums both the top and bottom, either put it on your clean finger and do it or else put some on a q-tip and rub that on their gums, I think they also make swabs with the orajel on it already. Also they have teething tablets now that you can buy at wal-mart or your local walgreen, QVC, anywhere like that the ones I buy are Hyland's homeopathic teething tablets, also I give a dose of tylenol every 4 hours or so and you could also put a teething ring or paci in the fridge or freezer for a little bit and then let them chew/suck on that or a cold rag.

  • Teething tablets for that age - i would hwait on giving baby oragel until a few months later - its not good for their developing throats - but I did it for my son and he was fine - I just read some sad stories afterwards

  • baby oragel is what there doctor wants me to do. but i feel like there to little and the box says 3 to 4 times a day, but i will only let them have it 1 maybe 2 in a day and thats when i give in from hearing them be in pain. i dont like giving baby oragel to them. ii feel there to little but there doctor did say it was okay. i just dont know what to do.

  • I swear by those teething tablets. They work miracles, and they are all natural. You can get them from walgreens,

  • teething tablets, hands down... I've used them myself for toothaches. They really work miracles! Baby orajel's really not that great imo.
