The most important thing any mom can do is to stay calm and be well equipped. Don't let prolonged fussiness get to you , and don't just let them suffer, either. Do all you can to help them get through it and it will be over before you know it.

Don't be afraid to try different things to help your teething baby. You never know which unusual method will end up offering them relief. If nothing seems to work, just hang in there and keep trying new things--whther it is a frozen washcloth, teething rings, amber necklaces or baby orajel. And remember--it will all be over soon!

Try not to get frustrated. It may seem at times like absolutely nothing is wrong and maybe nothing will be soothing them. Just have teething rings, chew things, orajel or anything on hand and snuggles are always a good thing!

During the teething process babies can be super fussy... well, they are fussy because they are in pain, respond with patience and love. Give baby lots of distractions, keep teething rings/necklaces on hand as well as the baby orajel natural products. Teething only last for a few years, try to embrace the joyful moments and quickly forget the fussiness.

In the long run I think it's worse on us then them! It's over before you know it. When it doubt treat for teeth first an if they don't seem better quickly then treat them as if they are sick. The symptoms always seem the same to me :)

Hang in there. These stages go by so fast. Keep teething toys, teething tabs, and oragel on hand for when you need it, and cherish this time, it's time you'll never get back, so cuddle baby, make him/her giggle, and watch those teeth come in, and chalk it all up as worth it.

Oragel naturals did seem the most effective for my little one, she's doing awesome. I got their teething rings too and they seem to be her favorites. There are products out there that work.

It won't last forever. Be prepared and do what you can to keep them comfortable. Try not to let the fussiness get to you, they don't know how else to tell you they're in pain
