  • Teething tablets were the only thing that worked for my DD she still uses them every once in a while, I know lots of people told me to get them and I hyymed and haaed thought it was weird and stupid, but finally she was hurting enough I got them, and all our teething woes were gone they are great, NOTHING else worked. You can get them at walgreens most grocery stores in the heath food vitamin area.
