my son's just turned 3 months and he's been teething for a while.. i have looked at these teething tablets but i have not yet found them in australia so i've just stuck too his teething ring's which he's been sucking and chewing on them for ages..! he loves them, because he tries to chew on everything and everyones fingers.. hes a very advanced boy if he wants something in his mouth he'll grab your hand and shove it in.. i do have bonjela and a few people said its not good but then a few have said its great.. i think i just don't want his joints and the rest going numb too but only just his gums.. :\ very complicated..

my little one just turned 3 months a few days ago and I think she's teething. Out of no where she started the excess drooling and her hand is constantly in her mouth. I tried a ring but she doesn't like it she perfers her hand. It been ok for her so far I didn't have to give her any painkillers as yet but I was told a wet/cool cloth and a soft (gel like) teether should do it.

yes my girls have just started teethign and because my girls teeth are just shifting under the gums no teething rings or anything like that will work so at this stage its just good old panadol for us..

Our daughter, too. I'm sure that she's gonna get 4 or 5 at the dame time, she's got enough drool to fill a swimming pool, all of her clothes/bibs/sheets are soaked!!
I use Hyland's teething tablets (may only be a Canada thing), they were recommended to me by a neighbor but they work wonders!! Another friend uses them to take the edge off before the Tylenol kicks in...
I tried baby oragel and anbesol, and a cold washcloth, and cold or room temp teething rings, all didn't work.
Sierra will chew on anything she can get her fingers on, but usually it's my index finger (she can lay it lengthwise along the whole gum and bite, and also suck on it at the same time).
I have given her arrowroot cookies, but she shoves them so far in that when the end gets soggy and breaks off, she chokes on it.

my little girl is 3 months in 5 days and she had recently started getting teeth as well, she hasn't been too bad yet but i use dentinox teething gel which a friend recommended and that seems to be working so far. you can re-apply it every 20 mins as well

You can try the tablets that work very well specially when baby needs to rest. What I have been doing is talking to him and massage his gums, I have ice water where I soak my fingers and give him relief, it is a great way to bond if your your son and they love to be taken care of. If you get the ring, put it in the freezer because the cold numb the gums.

hi, me too very red cheeks and pretty grumpy, for now he chews on his keys to soothe and in one month he can have gel to numb the area i find a little nurofen settles him if he gets really uncomfortable its from 3mths and does help otherwise just lots of cuddles and distractions. goodluck

You may find this remedy to sound a bit odd, but it works. I've used it for my daughter, nephew & cousin when they all began teething. Green onion cut off the roots on the bottom where the white is & allow your baby to suck & naw only on the white part. It has a natural anesthetic as well as helps thin the gums. Be really aware that your son will have very stinky breath. Try this method only when he is under an adults supervision. Good Luck

Hiya my son is just over 3 months now but started teething just short of a month ago, i have been using baby bonjela that seems to be helping him .He loves to bite on his baby blanket (willis) so i put a bit of water on it and freeze it which he loves to chew on. His best thing that helps his poor little gums is his favourite dummy which i put in a little bit of water in an ice cube tray and freeze it then he rubs it on his gums whilst it soothes him aswell. For his temperature he has been getting whilst he has been teething i have been using baby calpol to get it back down i hope this has helped you xx

My son also is 3 months, He enjoys my fingers the most. Infact he fell asleep with them today ;-). The teething tablets also work. I have used the wash cloth method before with my other children, it works also but gets thier clothes pretty wet. You kinda just have to find out what he likes best.

Drooling and chewing on fingers are both a really good sign that bub is teething or will be very soon. They can also get a mild temperature sometimes with teething and generally be a bit crankier than normal. My bub showed these signs and then I felt his gums and sure enough there are little ridges where some teeth are trying to poke through :-)

My little boy is just over 3 months and has started teething. He really likes chewing on a teething toy which only cost us $3 and we use Bonjella to soothe his gums. It seems to be working pretty well at this point, but as I say he's only just started! Good luck xx

My son is 10 weeks and is teething, I have given him the baby orajel twice, I have massaged his gums, I give him his teething rings to chew on while I hold it and sometimes him sucking on his soother helps him.

Yes, my son is teething as well. He is not even 3 months yet. I think he started cutting teeth actually a little after he turned 2 months old. I have been soothing his gums by freezing his binky and teething ring keys and then giving them to him to suck on and just holding it for him. Also I have a cold bottle of water on hand for him as well and also am giving him 1/2 milligram of childrens ibuprofen every 6-8 hrs. My cousin who has 2-year old twins told me tonight to wet a washcloth and put it in the freezer for a little bit and then give it to the baby to suck as well.

My little one's 3 months and started teething around 2 months. I use the teething tablets and they seem to help. She doesn't chew on a teething ring, she just sucks on it. I was told that if you put the teething ring in the fridge, even if she sucks on it and doesn't chew it, it still helps with the tender gums.

my oldest cut his teeth on hard pretzel sticks but were having the soothing issue with our 3 month old who also just started teeth and is too little for a hard pretzel stick found taking a clean wet wash cloth and putting it in the freezer for a little bit and letting him chew on that helps
