teething tablets

Do they work? I am desperate to find my 10 month old some relief.. he has at least 4 or 5 teeth coming in at once.. he is not sleeping well, and I don't want to keep him on Tylenol all the time because I am not sure how long it will take for him to cut them (plus, it seems to not even help much at night). I have heard of teething tablets but have never heard if they work or not, just looking for some feedback before I buy them. If anyone has other ideas for how to soothe his gums (other than cold teethers, I do that a lot) let me know please.

  • I would also give my boys a cool wet washcloth to chew on. Just watch them for strings of course....

  • LOVE them...my son hates to take them but they work...I just dissolve 3 in a tablespoon of juice or water and he takes them better this way...by the way my son is 22 months...I haven't used them lately but for your kid I would only start doing 1 or 2 but they work, and help him rest too!!!

  • Yes they worked for us too!! We only used two at a time and we would dissolve them in his mouth. They dissolve almost instantly I would just rub them around. Worked great for us.

  • wow, I am going to get some now! How exactly do they work? Do they numb the mouth or are they like a pain reliever?
