I've used baby orajel when my son was 3 months old and he was perfectly fine. Read all labels before giving anything to your child and consult your child's pediatrician for futher questions.

l use a paste of baking soda and water, but put very liitle on my son's gums. It works immed. l hear Ambesol makes their gums harder, so l'm afraid to use any of the over the counter stuff.

my doctor told us not to use orajel. it can numb their gag reflexes and cause them to choke try a frozen wash rag or a teething ring

There's a teething gel called Dentinox which can be used from birth. My little girl has that and it seems to do the trick
