I've given both of my sons "Hyland's Teething Tablets". They are 100% natural and dissolve in their mouth. I found that they worked great!

If you are in Adelaide apparently the WCH mouth paint is good. Depending on the bub's age i recommend nurofen as it has anti-inflammatory properties. But never dual dose with panadol. It's generally not recommended by doctors

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.

Nurofen (Ibuprofen) has an anti-inflamatory or for a natural Brauer's teething. Brauer's is brilliant I only gave them 2 doses at the start then 1 every 4 hours after that (They recommend 4 to start)

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.

Also depending on your childs age, you can try giving rusks or bread hardened in the oven.

These work great too.

I use something called Camilia. The brand is BOIRON. It's homeopathic and works amazing! I've read that orajel may now be believed to cause nerve damage in babies gums, so personally I would advise against using that.

You can freeze a face washer and let your child chew on it.

This works well and numbs the gums!

I personally just gave my daughter a really cold wet washcloth and she would just chew on it for ever. I had to rewet it every once in awhile so it would stay cold but she loved it.  Either that or a refrigerated teether.

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! : )

Highlands teething tablets. They worked awesome for both of my kids. They are all natural and dissolve in the baby's mouth.
