  • My 5 mos old DD is teething now, so I feel your pain. She loves a binky that is frozen, or a frozed wash cloth to chew on. I found ibuprophen helps my kids more than tylenon, but all kids are different. Hang in there

  • I know you have said you tried giving him the teething ring but have you tried freezing it first? Also the seething tablets worked with my dd so try that if all else fails. Good luck with your solution.

  • We used to use hylands organic teething pills but they were recalled. So don't use those. We didn't have problems with my son though... I do love organic products. .We used the cold rings as much as possible he mouth was too small though for them.

  • What worked best for my son was toast, and wet washclothes. He didn't like them frozen, but he liked chewing on them. Also ice-water. He drank a lot of that while he was teething. GL Mumma, it does end eventually!

  • When mine were teething I used to take organic teething biscuits, put them in the freezer and give them to my babies. They loved the taste and the coldness, plus the biscuits were thick and they could chew on them to their hearts content without them turning to mush right away.
