  • The best thing you can do is help make the pain go away by giving them some teething tablets or baby ore-gel, then it makes it easier for you to swaddle them so they know mommy cares and help them!

  • Baby Orajel works great and it also helps to give him something cool to chew on.

  • Tylenol, orajel, and just comfort them with baths, teething rings, cold sugar free popsicles are great.... play with them and put them for naps as often as they seem tired so they can sleep off the teething pains.
