  • Unfortunately that's part of it. Keep doing what you're doing. There isn't much more you can do.

  • Life-saver for me with my daughter was homeopathic teething tablets. I wish I'd had them with my older kids. They do have belladonna, so use with caution, but they work brilliantly with my baby girl.

  • when my daughters were teething I went to the pharmacist and asked what he recommends. Well he recommended that I use this thing called Humphries baby teething. This item was very useful in my childrens teething process along with ice chips and a cold teething ring. I hope this was useful.

  • start slow,like give him chewy toys he won't choke on.Once he's ready,give him something tough,like a small piece of steak,and make sure he chews it fully.

  • WELL THE ONLY THING I EVER TRIED WAS ORGANIC TEETHING TABLETS, I GOT THEM AT WAL-MART OR MY LOCAL GROCERY STORE, & THEY WORKED FOR MY DAUGHTER.

  • Yes baby orajel is amazing it just wears off so quickly and I'm honestly afraid that if I give him the orajel to often that he will overdose its the same with the tylenol. He only gets orajel every 4-8 hours and tylenol every 8 hours. Thankyou for the advice

  • So sorry your baby is so uncomfortable :(

    When my son was teething I got one of those self feeders - looks like a pacifier handle with a netting bag that you screw onto it. We would put frozen fruit in it - peaches, bananas, etc. and that always seemed to make him feel better.
