I've got a teething 21 week old and he needs some relief! We've got teething tablets but he's just miserable. Can anyone give me some ideas of how to help him?

with the orajel you just put a teeny tiny bit on your finger and use the other hand to move the lips out of the way!! yeah if you do put too much on like the size of a pea thats too much you just apply a little at a time but everyone can do what they think helps.

I've heard baby orajel is NOT good because first of all, it's hard to apply it to the spot directly and most likely your baby will swallow a bit. If they swallow too much of it, it could cause their throats to go numb making them likely to choke on their own saliva.



What I gave my little guy was baby tylenol for the pain. And I gave him ice cream cones to knaw on. He LOVED them.

i don't know if you've tried Baby Orajel, I use it on my 6 month old daughter and it seems to help.

Thank you!  He definitely is not concerned with the teethers in any way, hopefully this will work!

Let him chew on a wet cloth...my son constantly has something in his mouth and it is never the teething toys...He likes the wet cloth.
