Ds is 8 months old. And we're dealing with those pesky little teefers. 

He's been crying for over an hour. Screaming at the top of his lungs and I have exhausted all my resources. I just do not know what to do for him. 

I've give him frozen teething rings, frozen bananas, baby orajel, snuggle him, and calmly talk to him. 

I don't know what else to do. I'm at my witts end with the screaming. I literally want to pull my hair out. :( 

ANY ADVICE?!!!!

 Oh no!!!! I remember those days and just going crazy. Unfortunately for me, the only thing that ever worked was a pacifier. And if she refused the pacifier, that was the end. I don't remember what I did in those times. Cry, maybe? LOL. I only did this 2-3 times, but you could try putting him in his crib for just a few minutes while you go in another room to take a breather.

Or if you have a carrier/wrap/sling, etc. perhaps you can put him in there and the two of you can go for a walk while he gnaws on your fingers? I know I did that with DD quite a few times.

Just remember that it will end! Don't give up hope :)

Does he relax when you go for a walk in the stroller at all? Sounds like you've tried all the teething solutions I can think of, trying to think of ways you might help him get through it while retaining your own sanity...

I used to give Tylenol or Advil as a last resort. I've also head wonderful things about amber or hazel wood teething necklaces. My friends buy them at Inspired by Finn. Good luck!

I bought some homeopathic teething tablets I found at the pharmacy.  They seemed to work OK.

Teething tablets always worked for us.
