  • I gave mine frozen french fries but took them away once they got too mushy so she wouldn't choke.

    The hylands tablets didn't work and she HATED orajel.

  • I used to give my kids a cold peeled carrot. It worked great. :-)

  • I heard that Orajel was dangerous so I don't use it & as for the wash cloth she turns her head away or throws it

  • Tylenol seems to work just fine for my daughter...she also chews on pacifiers...she isn't much for teething rings but she likes her pacifier so I just let her chew on it, she also chews on her blankets and it seems to make her happy so I just let her keep at it.

  • I used real vanilla extract for all of mine and it helped. It has a very small amount of alcohol in it and worked great. I also used frozen popsicles and teething tablets.

  • For my son, the best thing was frozen grapes in a mesh feeder (so it's not a choking hazard). He loved it! Teething tablets were good, and every so often we'd resort to Tylenol, but we saved that as a last resort. A frozen washcloth is also good. Beware of anything that can break off and become a choking hazard (ie carrots, waffles, popsicles, etc.). Alcohol is not generally regarded as a safe method of managing children's pain. Teething toys can be good. Good luck!
