  • I dont think so , all you need to give him now is love and cuddles , sometimes thats all it takes to calm them down , we are so tense when we see our little ones suffering with pain that we are frantic to find a solution . You will get through it , good luck .hang in there

  • my daughter is teething as well. she loves it when we take the baby toothbrus ( the one that goes around your finger) and massage her gums. good luck

  • Awww.. that is so terrible :( I know how you feel. its hard to not be able to help your little one. But honestly, there isnt anything else you can do. you are doing a great job. all you can give your munchkin now is love and cuddle with him.

    my daugher was always chewing on hard stuff, like plastic (from her toys ect.). she didnt like the soft teething helpers or frozen rings ect. that helped her a lot. because that kinda broke her gum open easier for the teeth.

    i hope your son will feel better soon.
