Natural ways to sooth teething babies
There is a topical anisthetic called Dentinox. It has NO sugar and tastes AWFUL! It's purely a numbing agent. If things get out of hand, check your pharmacy for it!
We used those water filled teething rings, stuck them in the freezer (in ziplock bags so no odours or tastes get stuck to them) then let baby suck/chew on them until the water melted, then we gave him a fresh one.
Also, we bought a Baby Bjorn sling, LIFESAVER!!!

after reading the other two posts i only have 2 things to say, you could also just run very cold water over a wash cloth and let him suck until warm, repeat, or you could try Camilia, it's considered a homopathic medicine, and contains no alcohol, sugar, coloriing or preservatives. just watch out , frozen teething rings, or face cloth can cause frost bite in a little ones mouth.

hi there, bonjela can be quite helpful but i'm not sure if you class that as meds. other things you can try are teething rings put in the freezer, also frozen apple wrapped in a muslin cloth they love chewing on anything cold like that always make sure i've got something like that ready to grab out. another thing that helps is those teething rusks. sadly at night there's not a lot to do to help them sleep other than the bonjela and a full tum. teething is a hard one but hang in there and i hope that one of these helps in some way! gudluck!! =)
