  • Try Hylands teething tablets. They're homeopathic and seem to work really well.
    Also try freezing washcloths for him to chew on.

  • Once when my daughter was teething, all I had to do was hold her. I tried everything(teethers,baby orajel) and we ended up on the floor, me sitting with my legs crossed,(not a comfy position) watching Barney and my daughter cuddled on my lap chewing the nipple of an empty bottle. If I moved an inch she would cry. I actually enjoyed that moment we had together and would do it over again.

  • honestly, my son has been teething for about 2 months now, and the best thing ive found are teething rings and teething tablets...its going to be miserable for both of you, especially at night...mines 10 months old now and he's got his first 4 teeth...hopefully no more for a little while. :)

    good luck!!
