Teething remedies?

Baby's first tooth broke through on Christmas Eve! He will be 6 months old on the 27th. He has a teething necklace that he wears all the time and I think it's helping a lot, but there are still times where he won't stop crying and I know he's in pain. Sometimes a cold teething ring or toy will help but sometimes he just gets more frustrated and throws it.

So does anyone have any suggestions? I've thought about teething tablets but I don't know which brand to get, my friend had some and she found out later that there's something in them that causes cancer, yikes. My dad suggested I get baby orajel but I don't know if I'm comfortable with that I heard it's not good for his nerves. I thought about just going to Henry's (farmers market) and looking there but then I thought I'd ask in here first :)

We like hylands teething tablets and it sounds strange but rubbing a raw onion on the gums works wonder

I've heard that! But we haven't given him anything but breastmilk yet because he can't sit up on his own. Would it be ok just for rubbing on his gums or could that still cause food allergies?

My kids always liked to chew on a damp wash cloth.  I don't know if anything really helps, poor kids.

Hylands is good if baby is having a hard time sleeping at night because of it. Otherwise I've found borion to be the effective homeopathic remedy.

I use clove bud oil and olive oil. It works like a charm!

Hylands dissolve almost instantly but if ur worried u can dissolve in a little water and give with an oral syringe

What is borion? I've never heard of it.
