You can try giving your kid a cold wash cloth to bite on or freezing a teething ring. If that doesn't help, you can always try children's tylenol.

We gave my son the Little Remedies Teether Tabs b/c they are homepathic and were trying to keep as many drugs out of his system as possible. He's about to be 9 months and has more teeth coming through again and we are still using them and he likes getting them since he has some chompers now to chew them with. They are dissolvable though and we had to start giving them to him at about 2 1/2 months.

a weird p.s.....
teething is a natural process everyone has to go through. if your child is...say...less than a year old...what the child is going through NOW compared to getting its two year old molars will be nothing compared to that. the least amount of meds you can get them by with the better. motrin is an anti-inflammatory. inflammation is part of the teething process. childrens tylenol or similar pain reliever would be more appropriate. enamel is one of the hardest substances in the body...think.."bone" for lack of a better word... tylenol is best for joint/bone pain...motrin/advil/ibuprofen is best for muscle/soft tissue pain. hope that helps too. =)

we use Hyland's teething tablets. you can get them at wal-mart in the baby section. less than 6 bucks for the perfect solution. they are hoalistic...so its all natural ingredients that won't harm the baby and are NOT habit forming. i did a TON of reading before settling on ANYthing like this to use with our son. i'm an uber naturalist when it comes to what i allow to go into my child's body. one thing i DO know about orajel...even for adults...if you use it too often and more than once in a day it can actually cause the nerves in the mouth to be MORE sensitive than they were when you first used it. learned that the hard way for myself a long time ago...read articles about it and decided never to use it on my kids. also...if you miss...and get it on the tongue...that can cause problems too. but...its not like...lol...abusive to give it to your kids if you decide to. i just would never use something like that. the teething tablets have chamomile and belladonna and stuff like that in it. naturally occurring herbs. good luck with whatever you decide! =)

My son had a hard time teething (temp, wouldn't eat and barley slept) until I use baby oral jel along with teething tables. Work like a charm.
