  • Try infant Motrin. Sometimes it works when Tylenol isn't. Have you tried baby Orajel (my kids always hated it and would cry harder)? Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets might help. Freeze a washcloth and let him chew on it. If you do a Google search you can probably find a few more ideas.
    I'm sorry your son is having such a hard time with teething. Poor baby and mommy.

  • Hyland's Teething Tablets

    Also, I've given my daughter a piece of sweet onion on which to chew. That helps a lot as well.

  • You can try using the cold teething rings or even putting an ice cube in a mesh feeder for your baby to suck on. These were/are things my baby loves when his gums are hurting.
