Help with teething relief for a 5 month old

My son is 5 months, been teething since 3 months. It has been horrible for the past few weeks. We've tried baby Tylenol, teething tablets, frozen wash cloth, cold teethers... I don't know what else to do but he has been crying 24/7 so I need some new ideas!! Any advice is appreciated!

(He has just started eating a tiny bit of cereal.. doesn't really like it.. and isn't on any real food or baby food yet)

  • vibrating teether might be soothing too or just rubbing the gums with your finger with a cool wet wash cloth
