teething tablets do work wonders!!! but with this being my 4th child i stuck with the same thing i did with all my others.. i bought small washcloths, wet them put them in a large ziplock bag and then threw them in the freezer for a couple of hours.. this method not only helped my kids but was also a very inexpensive way to deal with teething
Well other than orajel and tylenol when it gets really bad, try......
wet wash clothes, teething rings that have been in the fridge, biter biscuits (very messy but they love them), brushing their gums with a finger toothbrush(maybe even putting the orajel on the toothbrush and rubbing the sore gums), teething tablets.
Hope some of those ideas help!

amber teething necklace i have is absolutely brilliant.
my little boy teethed really adly but after getting him one at 8months .. he's changed instantly .. no more rosey red cheeks and irritableness however his main teething symptom is trapped wind which the necklace doesnt help with .. so i constantly have to give him gripew ater but other than that his top teeth are starting to appear and i haven't noticed too much.

Teething tablets work like a charm! You can get them at the health food store and they are 100% natural. Give your baby three of them at a time (they just melt in their mouth) for up to 4 times a day. They relieve teething pain like magic! They cost only $11.99 for 125 tablets. I have a 9 month old as well and he stops crying instantly after taking them. Tylenol also helps, especially at night. Good luck!

For my 2 year old and 10 month I used "Hurricane". You get it at Wal-Mart for about $10. You only have to use a little bit so it last for a long time. The orajel didn't work for mine. I tried it first. I also used the frozen teething rings. That helps to numb the pain away!

teething tablets did nothing for my son. right before bed I used nightime orajel it doesn't make them sleepy just has stronger numbing medicine. On really bad nights I would give him some infant motrin that helped us survive the first four teeth so far.
The Tylenol worked great for me but my son recently started getting his molars and canines at 9 months. I decided to try the baby Oragel.... OH MY!!! has anyone tasted that stuff... I probably should not have done that because it tasted so bad I will probably never put it in his mouth again. I have a gum stimulator brush that I just let him chew on now. That and any teether I can find in the house I just give him and he chews away.
