  • You can alternate tylenol with advil every 4 hours and use the orajel...I know it is hard. The experts say that If we teethed as adults we could not handle the pain. I feel for ya...just remember "this too shall pass". I have also used teething tablets..they are all natural. I found them at Wal-mart. Good luck and hang in there.

  • You can try teething tablets. I have heard they work wonders and they are all natural. I didnt get a chance to use them because I found out about them right at the end of my sons sleepless nights. You can get them at Walgreens in the baby section.

  • This is what I did with Ky. It may seem like a lot but the doctor oked it. I did tylenol, teething tablets, and orajel. Then four hours later I did Iburoprefen.
