  • You have not mentioned what he is going through... as I recall, probably a bit of a fever, crankiness and a lot of drooling. We used a gel teething ring that we could put in the freezer and massaged the gums with a homemade popsicle (fruit juice in the freezer poured into small ice cube trays) - our daughter loved it!

  • Humphries... ask the pharmacist.... helps so much and helps them sleep comfortably.

  • He drools a lot is very cranky screams and cries a lot he always rubs his face when he's awake I can see a white thing on his lower gum he chews on everything and today he tried to chew on the puppy's nose, poor cashus he's so picked on

  • Homemade popsicles are what got us through teething too. I would water down the juice and freeze it.

  • I'm doing teething rings. It says you're not supposed to freeze them but I do it anyway. She doen't hang onto it long enough to cause frostbite. Maybe I'm a bad mom, but it's helping. :) Good Luck lonemom 1987!!

  • I bought these tablets there organic you put 2 little ones in like a tsp of water let it absorb into the water than pour it on the gums it works like magic i did the teething rings too but they both were too cranky for them and crewed on blankets or anything they could find :)
