I've used Hylands and also Humphrey's teething tablets. I also like the mesh teethers (found in baby aisles everywhere) with a cold slice of apple for those pesky top teeth. The cold of the apple is soothing, plus adds moisture for sucking, but the mesh gently massages the gums at the same time.

I used baby tylenol and it worked for both my boys. It helps with the pain. I also gave them both a wooden clothes pin ( the ones with the balls on the tops) to chew on. My grandmother actually told me about these. The wood is sanded smoothly so they wont get a sliver and they can chew on it forever, and the way its shaped they can hold on to it with no problem. Good luck.

Hi, sorry to hear about that. I found that Vidol in a liquid form - its an oral anesthetic for babies. I found that it made the world of difference when my daughter was teething. U just rub it on their gums. Its available at all leading outlets and pharmacies. Everything of the best.

My doctor told me to use motrin. It works great for my daughter!! You obviously can't use it everyday, but it works well. And your baby has to be atleast 6 months. Also both my girls like to chew on the baby wipes (the unscented ones). Hope that helps.

Hi there. I had a terrible time with teething (or my daughter did!!) My doctor prescribed us Lignocaine 2% Gel which is an anaesthetic. Just a tiny bit works immediately. Of course it has to be used carefully - you need to avoid getting the tongue for instance. I also found Bonjela to have no effect. We tried natural remedies, but they didn't seem to make any improvement to her discomfort. I am experiencing the same patterns with my 11mnth old son who is teething, and we have also tried a teething necklace, which is made of Amber beads. I have a friend who swears by the necklace for her chlldren. The natural oils from the Amber leach into the skin when worn against the skin. The Amber has anti-inflammatory properties. Not to be chewn on though. Hope some of this helps and good luck! : )
