My son is teething. Molars.
We are keeping up with the tylenol... but its not working as well as it used to. He had some an hour and a half ago and is still in pain. (He keeps signing hurt, pointing to his teeth, and crying.)

I gave him a popsicle (real fruit, no added sugar) but that seems to last 20min or so.

We've never had this hard of a time.. he won't use a cold cloth or his chewies. Any other ideas? I feel so bad that I can't just make him feel better.

How old is the baby? If baby is six months, they can have motrin. Wait three hours before giving the Motrin so the Tylenol will have worn off. Never give both together. If baby is younger than six months or the Motrin does not seem to be working, call your doctor. It could be something more than teething.

I haven't tried it. I read somewhere that it can harden the gums.

He's never really been into pacifiers :/

Lol people used to do it a lot! No whiskey in our house though. It tends to bring out the celtic tempers, so we don't buy it
