  • agree with the teething tabs, i also got my children some teething toys that you freeze then give it to them also if you want to go the cheep way get a wash rag put some ice in it and tie it off and let then teeth on that. the cold helps numb the gums

  • I feel for you - my LO started teething at 4 months too. Cool is better than cold - just make sure whatever you give isn't frozen through. I used the teething gel, I have heard good and bad about it, so I also used vanilla extract rubbed on the gums. I also agree with the toys to chew on - even the ones you don't freeze. Good luck!!!
