  • my son loved those teething rings you put in the freezer, that and Oragel, were the only things that helped him out. Tylenol if he starts to run a fever. Good luck momma!

  • a frozen teething ring to chew on or a special blanket that you wet and freeze. We call them chewies. Baby Orajel on the gums helps as well. And make sure you start brushing early. The have toothbrushes that are soft for babies gums to get them used to the brushing activity and they sell toothpaste in stages. Gum cleaner, tooth cleaner, training toothpaste, kids paste and then adult toothpaste.

  • With DD1 we tried teething tablets, orajel, rings, biter biscuits...she was happy when we gave her frozen waffles. DD2 has been teething since she was your DSs age, but nothing has cut through. However, she's not upset about it in the slightest. She just tries to swallow her fist daily.

  • Try those sugar free popsicles. Not the healthiest thing to give your baby but depending on how old they are they work wonders!! My baby cousin used to love the feeling on her gums and it's the only thing that got her through! Just be careful on how much you let them bite off !! (like i said it depends on how old they are) Good luck to you!
