What is the best thing to help babies sleep while they are teething?

My son is currently going through this. I have tried the teething tablets I think they are awesome. They help my son sleep through the night. Oh they are awesome. You can buy them at wal-mart, CVS, walgreens.

I use a mixed approach.
If my daughter's cheeks are red when I put her to bed, I'll give her 2.5mls of infant paracetamol suspension (calpol) and rub some Anbesol into her gums... Anbesol contains lidocaine hydrochloride, a local anaesthetic and a couple of mild antiseptics to kill germs and bacteria.
If she wakes during the night, I'll give her some Nelson's Teething granules (homeopathic remedy containing cammomile) and as long as at least 4 hours have passed, another 2.5mls of infant paracetamol suspension.
During the day, I'll give her a damp cloth which has been frozen that she can suck on and cool her gums (or gel-filled teethers that have been cooled, that she can gnaw on).

alot of people say that ora-gel is bad for kids cause it could numb there throat but I used that on mine and she did fine. instead of tylenol try to give motrin because it helps with the inflamation that could be hurting him ,,,,,, and also try to put him to bed with ice water in a bottle. the coldness will soothe his gums.
