  • I used orajel and frozen bagels they loved them. once they softened up I would toss them back in the freezer and give them a new one.

  • I did the orajel and also kept frozen wet cloths in freezer to let them chew on.

  • my dad swears by whiskey, he put it on my gums when i was a teething baby. i never tried it with my own though, orajel and tyenol worked for mine. with my oldest i used teething tablets because she was in the most pain and they worked well for her. they also have teething binky's now.

  • My pedi told me orajel can burn babys gums idk if theres truth to that...but i avoided it. We froze washclothes and bought toys that freeze and used the teething tablets! Tylenol when things got REAL bad at night! But that was about wasnt too bad!

  • I wouldn't do Orajel. Amber teething necklaces, teething tablets, frozen washcloths and time...

  • I would give mine frozen teething biscuits-- they were all natural, quite thick so the kids were able to gnaw on them for quite a while before they turned to mush.
