  • walmart, cvs, wallgreens. HOMOPATHIC TEETHING TABLETS. * takes away the fussiness, pain, helps calm them, 2/3 tablets on the gums, dissolve quickly. It worked wonders for my 2. of course I used a mesh teething bag to with frozen fruit in it. good luck.

  • I agree with kkbird. Those tablets are amazing! Also you could try infants advil. It has ibprofin in it which will help with swelling. Frozen wash cloths, as kkbird said mesh teething bag with frozen fruit in it, and lots of love. Poor baby :( I hate when my girls were teething. I felt helpless.

  • Baltic Amber Teething necklace to wear, frozen BM in a mesh teether, frozen washcloth corner to chew on, Hylands teething tablets.

    All of this. It works.

  • I always used teething rings and put them in the freezer. something cold always helps like ice, popslices. I never did use those teething tablets and just used uragel for gums and maybe some baby tyolnel at night to help them sleep.
