Hi I used homeopathy "New Era" teething tablets both for my 13yr old and now my 17month old. The idea is to start using them at about 4months old by giving them 4-6 every day. They are easy to take they just melt once put into the mouth. Then when teeth cuts the gums you can give then 10 a day as they are natural there is no side effects and they work a treat. I did not know when my children were teething it was really easy. Just remember to be consistent.

I use Humphrey's Teething tablets. I also have tried the frozen washcloth (take a baby washcloth, they are softer, wet it, roll it, place it in the freezer in a plastic baggy). I have yet to try the biscuits, but I am going to buy some this week, everyone keeps telling me that usually work really good. My little man just had his first two teeth break through at the same time last week.

I used frozen fruit slices (very thin 1/4 inch of apples, peaches, pears), cold solids, frozen peas and blueberries, slightly frozen wet washclothes, fingers (theirs or mine), cold teether toys, direct pressure on sore spot for a few seconds (as long as they will tolerate), pain relievers at night, warm baths, distraction, just a hard toy to chew, biter biscuits or zweiback toasts, teething sippy (from Avent) with icy water or dilute juice.
That's some of what I tried. Some worked great, some not so much, but give any or all of it a try. Sometimes I had to rotate through a few of these things. With all of the food stuff, supervise closely even if you put them into those mesh bag things for babies who like to chew on big people food.

Teething rings didnt do any good for my son. I tried that baby ambesol and that didnt work either. Just knumbed his lips and tongue. What finally did help were those biter biscuits from Gerber. They're hard and help to ease the pain and push teeth through faster. My son loved them.

Have you ever heard of, or tried, an amber teething necklace? These have been used in Europe for centuries to naturally reduce teething discomfort. Check out this FB page for a few thousand Mom's who swear by them!

i never used anything for my kids except teethers that they didn't really like anyways. it's a natural part of their growing, and it's a great chance to snuggle and strengthen your bond!!

my two oldest always chewed on my fingers when they were teething. My 3mo. old has started to do the same thing. He also has a teether that vibrates when he bites down on it and seems to like that a lot.
