  • Hylands teething tablets, Baltic amber teething necklace to wear, not chew, frozen breastmilk in a mesh feeder, refrigerated teething rings, frozen washcloth and as a emergency only last resort, Motrin, not Tylenol..and NO orajel.

  • Old classics like melba toast helped my DD with hers. She also had a teething ring we'd keep in the refrigerator. That helped too.

  • Elle Bella20 why no orajel? Just curious? I've been told that teething tablets are great!!!! Frozen washclothes work the best for my little one..I have always seen that Motrin works waaaay better for teething than tylenol!

  • Don't freeze the teething rings though. They can cause damage to the gums from being too cold for too long...like frostbite. The washcloth will warm up quickly and not cause harm.
