  • Freeze a wet washcloth and let him chew on that.

  • Sometimes if you rub a little vanilla extract on their gums that will help. Not to much though. Just enough to wet the end of your finger. Pain medicine always helped mine.

  • My ped told me to use baby tylenol, it worked way better then oragel. Lasted longed and helped my son be less fussy.

  • I use the baby tylenol only as a last resort. DS loves to chew on blankets and teething toys. I got him the small ones that have water in them and you chill in the frige. It was a pack of 3 small ones from walmart and they seem to fit his hand better than the big ones. He also still loves his pacifier. He is more or less holding it and chewing on the nipple. Sometimes he likes to chew on my arm! The teething tablets work, but I try not to use baby oragel... he usually gets a stomach ache right after. And No I'm not using any more than recommended. Good Luck!!
