We had wonderful success with Baltic amber teething necklaces... my son wore them during the day and off at night and it made a HUGE difference. The necklaces are not to chew on... they replace a natural oil into the skin that's a pain killer... we went from giving him Tylenol. motrin, teething tablets, and orajel (and STILL had a miserable baby) from getting these necklaces and only on rare occasions giving him a single dose of medication before bed! We ordered ours online from Europe where they are a very common thing with babies... (in the U.S. they are WAY over priced)
In the mean time, your baby is also old enough for motrin now, which is better for pain and inflammation... I would try that before bed.
