  • Amber teething necklaces have worked miracles on my children

    Frozen wash cloths, frozen peices of bagel, frozen fruits in the mess bag holders.

  • clean wash cloth wet and in the freezer. You can even wet it with apple juice or something flavored messy yes but at least they won't be in pain. There's also having them knaw on frozen veggies. Whatever you do don't use the baby orejel. It causes there gums to harden up making the next tooth that comes threw hurt worse. Plus it only relives it for about 3 minutes.

  • We used to use Highland's Teething tabs, but they aren't available any more. You can use other homeopathics or they also make a teething gel that is still available. We also used an amber necklace for our son.

  • How old? We always liked Hylands Teething tablets, hard fruit in a food pouch (or cheesecloth). DS always liked ice cubes to chew on, frozen washcloths. Fennel root is good too.

  • My pediatrician told me the only thing that really helps (other than tylenol if the pain is really bad) is counterpressure on the gums so they need something to bite on. I had a metal key chain that my DD was obsessed with, I think the combination of the metal being so hard to bite down on and also feeling cool in her mouth is what she liked. It was smooth and one solid peace so nothing she could choke on or cut her mouth on. The wet wash cloth in the freezer worked sometimes, too, and for her early teeth I could put my finger on the gum and let her bite down and she liked that, too.
