Robyn...you should be able to get it at any chemist/pharmacist. Just ask for the bonjella infant teething gel :)

Lydia...bonjella? where would you get that? I would like to try that too. Even for my teeth :)

flannels or hand towels to chew on are great. Also highly recommend bonjella (it worked so well for me with my wisdom teeth and seems to do the same for my daughter) - but for the really bad times I use panadol. I have also been told that rubbing a boiled clove over the gums works - but havent tried this myself...

Depending of course on the age of your little one...my son is 8 months old, and I'll give him a half (cored) of an apple, or a celery stick. Of course, at that age you can't leave them unattended but he enjoys the coldness of it and he gets a bit of a flavor out of it too.

I agree, wet wash cloths work wonders too! :)

I use bonjela, seems to work well for Xander, but it doesn't last for too long. When the teeth are actually cutting thru panadol worked well for him. I have the teething rings for him to chew on, but he doesn't like them when they are cold even though he will chew away on them at room temperature.

Tylenol, Motrin, orajel, teething rings or they have teething tablets that work pretty good..

They have these teething rings that vibrate now.. That worked wonders with my daughter. I think it might numb their gums.
