  • He's hurting, so I'd comfort him as much as possible. Try some teething tablets or motrin.

  • Teething tablets are great. I like Hylands and Humphries is another brand.

    Definately hold him and comfort him as much as he wants. Poor baby doesn't understand why he's hurting. :(

    Personally I'd avoid orajel because while it does instantly relieve the pain, it toughens the gums and actually makes it take much longer for the tooth to cut the surface of the gum.
