Missy, my daughter has an amber teething necklace and it has worked wonders!! She was having so much trouble before her first tooth cut through so I got the necklace after a recomendation from a friend. She then cut the tooth without hassle and has cut another 5 since again with no hassle. I recommend them to all my friends now. ISuch a hard time for them =(

Hylands Teething Tablets.
Indications for Use: A homeopathic combination for the temporary relief of symptoms of simple restlessness and wakeful irritability due to cutting teeth.
Calcarea Phosphorica 3X HPUS - supports dentition
Chamomilla 3X HPUS - for irritability
Coffea Cruda 3X HPUS - for wakefulness and diuresis
Belladonna 3X HPUS (0.0003% Alkaloids) - for redness and inflammation
In a base of Lactose (milk sugar) NF.
The amount of belladonna in it is so miniscule. My friends toddler at an entire bottle in one sitting and poison control was not concerned. They said that she would have to eat upwards of 8 full bottles all at once to have any adverse effects. And those effects would be drowsiness and possibly upset stomach.
We swear by them. 2-3 tablets every hour when it's bad.
When it's really bad we also give a dose of Tylenol or Motrin.
I also swear by Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces. My first didn't have one and her teething was horrid. My second is barely having any issues at all with teething pain while wearing her amber.

I have tried cold wet cloths & cold teething toys, gripe water works sometimes. There is a homeopathic medicine called "Camilia" I'm not sure if its available everywhere. Made by Boiron Laboratories. Otherwise there are these teething tablets called Hyland's Teething Tabs..I haven't tried them, but they contain some of the same ingredients as the Camilia liquid. Otherwise, tempra or motrin (ibuprofen of any kind).

I've found that Infant Motrin has worked best for out little one. I did try the homeopathic teething tablets and when we gave the recommended number of tablets to her, they didn't seem to do much at all. She really isn't all the interested in teething rings or even the mesh bags because we've tried those as well. Baby orajel is good too, although they really seem to hate the taste of it. Usually our peanut puts up a little fight but once we get it on her gums and the pain is relieved, she doesn't really seem to mind. I'd try the infant motrin before bed, I've noticed the teething seems to get worse at night. We usually give it to our daughter about 20 minutes before bed time, let it kick in and then she seems to be ok.

Hyland teething tablets are the best thing!!! You do have to give more than the package says, like 5-8 tablets. They are like a miracle!! I usually give my 8 month old Gentle Naturals Homeopathic Teething Liquid and my 2 year old the tablets, but I have given the baby both. It's amazing how well they work.
Infant Motrin works WAY better than tylenol, but on days where she is teething really bad I will alternate Tylenol and Motrin.
Also, the mesh teething bags are great too! I used to freeze breastmilk or formula and put it in there and give to my kids. Most recently I put some cold cantalope in the mesh bag and she loved that!! It's cold and taste good!! I would try any cold fruit though.
Hope this helps!
