  • Teething Tablets! They work wonders for my son. Also his doctor has told me that orajel makes it take longer for the teeth to come through the gums and they end up suffering longer.

  • my son also started teething at that age.. teething tablets did help as did orajel. I couldn't get my son to take a teething ring at that age but he did like my finger. i would put it in his mouth and let him chew that and i would sometimes just rub his gums

  • Mine hated orajel so when teething REALLY seemed to bother him I gave the recommended dose of infants tylenol. Once he got old enough to really get stuff do his mouth on purpose he enjoyed chewing cold wet washcloths. Good Luck. (=
