  • Teething Tablets by hyland, cold or frozen washcloth, oragel. But really baby motrin was the only thing that worked for us.

  • My child is 5 month old, i know you said that you don't want medicine, but walmart has all natural teething tablets in drug isle next to the pain relief stuff, i've tried them myself and they work, there organic. Also a teething ring yeah my kid won't hold on to the darn thing so that is a waist of my time but might work for you, there are also teething toys, my son's favorite is by first years it's a star that when he bites down it vibrates and soothes him in some way.

  • I know many people are gonna have something to say about this but...if you dip the tip of your finger in whisky and rub it on the baby's gums the pain will go away....i'm not suggesting that you do this but my mom did this for all of her kids and it seemed to have worked.

  • unless he is fussy from the pain, do nothing. If he is just drooling, biting down, hands in mouth n u know he's teething..he is fine. Medicate the least as possible.

  • I used hylands teething tabs and they worked good. you can also use an electric toothbrush or regular toothbrush and massage the gums. It softens the tissue. My daughter would never take any of the cold stuff.
