My son has bit through 3 of the teething rings, gels don't work, tylonel is hit or miss - mainly miss- really the only things that have helped him is wetting part of a wash cloth and putting it in the freezer for a few minutes, he also just likes to suck on one when he's in the bath, maybe it's the material that helps his gums. You can also try waffles right out of the freezer or depending on the childs age get of the frozen veggies or make fruit popcicles. That way their getting the nutruients they need along with the pain relief. That also helps with the pinching grabbing for the kids in that stage.

I heard, too, that using these gels make the gums tighten cause it to be more difficult for teeth to break through resulting in a MORE painful experience than needed. I use teething tablets. They're all natural and my son loves them. He's just now starting to teeth really bad at 8 mos and I used the tablets today and he immediatly stopped crying while I rubbed them in. There are a few different brands of the tablets and the one I like the most is the Hyland's Homeopathic. They seem to disolve MUCH faster than the other brands making it easier to give to baby. You should be able to get it at any grocery store in the regular baby section.

Other than the normal teething rings, cold wash clothes, small doeses of Tylenol etc there really isn't much you can do but wait it out unfortunately.

My pediatrician said to be very careful about oral gels for babies (Actually, she said never to use them) because in a very very small portion of the population they can cause serious heart problems. She said that the gels only provide very temporary relief anyhow, so to just use tylenol, which will provide longer relief.. and refigerator cooled teething rings.
