  • I always used teething powders for my kids, my grandma told me about it , helped my kids. Its been along time since my kids have been children you use to could buy at the drug store

  • A cold cloth, try putting a baby size wash cloth in the refrigerator, or a teething ring that you cool in the refrigerator. Try having a couple so you always have one on hand.

  • You could try getting a teether and placing it in the fridge to get it cold. Also they make teething tablets that I have heard work great! I personally never used them just because with my first she liked the orajel and with my second she cut her teeth so fast that I never even knew she was teething until she would wake up with a new tooth. Good luck! I strongly suggest the teethers though, they always work great!

  • teething tablets, and a cold wet washcloth. put a washcloth in the freezer for 20 minutes or so and let him chew on it, it workds really very well. My dd hates the water filled teethers.

  • Frozen, damp washcloths
    hylands teething tabs
    Lots of extra nursing (for comfort as well as nutrition)

  • Hylands Teething Tablets you will find are a Godsend! Just do not try the Orajel anymore, that stuff is no good! Anything frozen or cold, like frozen waffles my son loved those! Or frozen bagels, washcloths, toys, etc.

  • Frozen washcloths, teething tablets, gripe water. I've also noticed my son likes to chew on his toys that vibrate when his teeth are hurting him.

  • If you're into homeopathic remedies, my son loves the homeopathic chamomile drops. They're a hunt for sure, (they have baby Eeyore and Pooh on the box) but they work really well. We end up buying out the 2-3 bottles on the shelf when we find it!
