My 4 month old son is teething and I'm clueless as to what I can do to help him. He doesn't like the teething toys I have for him and he just wants to be held and he cries all the time. I'm fast losing patience even though I know it isn't his fault his mouth must hurt. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

  • Baby Tylenol. I use it as a last resort, but it works. Or try the baby oragel. I havent used that yet, because the tylenol has worked for me. Have you tried wetting a wash cloth, then freezing it, and giving it to him?

  • I have tried everything. The only thing that seems to help is the pressure of my finger on his gums.

  • Freeze damp washcloths
    Hylands Teething tabs
    Lots of hugs, kisses and extra nursing
