  • tylenol and motrin or teething tablets and those freezy chew toys or you could freeze up some pancakes or waffles and give them to him

  • Go to walmart or target and get the hylands teething tablets, they are great because they are all natural so you can give them 2-3 at a time and its not dangerous. And you can give them more frequent then tylenol or motrin. Also, try getting the corner of a washcloth wet and freezing it and letting him suck on it, or freezing fruit.. or if you are super desperate, I once let my son just sit on the couch and chew his toothbrush, I had to get him a new one, but he was content and I think it helped the teeth cut through. Good luck!

    This teether was AMAZING when my DS was teething...  He would walk around with it in his pocket and pull it out whenever his teeth were bothering him....  Oh and if you are against Pacifiers, although it looks like one, my DS never used it as one...  I think the bumps make it hard to suck on.... 

    We also used frozen bananas.  They worked great too!
