  • I use Hyland's Teething Tablets. They are homeopathic so they are completely safe, they don't have a nasty taste and they dissolve instantly. I don't use orajel I think it's gross and so does my son. You can get the teething tablets at walmart next to the children's vitamins. You can also get a fresh fruit feeder at walmart, you can freeze fresh fruit and put it inside, it will soothe his gums and taste good so he might like it better than the washcloth. Oh and if you want to try again with the washcloth try soaking it in juice before freezing, it might taste better. Hope this helps! Good luck hun!

  • Tylenol or Motrin. Orajel just make their gums tougher and harder for the teeth to cut through. (AT least that's what our DR. said)

  • I agree with Tylenol. Visit your local pharmacy and see what he/she suggests.

  • We used to give our kids otter pops popsicles. That way the cold can help with some of the pain, and make sure you keep some tylenol handy... I hope your little one feels better soon.

  • Teething tabs are great and so is tylonal. Also get a net that hold food and put an ice cube in it ;) Hayden hates oral Gel.I cant even get near her with it..
