In addition to tylenol and teethers, I try to make sure my son's food are cool/cold. If you can find 100% fruit juice popsicles (Edy's makes some) that might help as well.
I've never tried it, but I've been told frozen toothbrushes help too.

poor baby! At least it's all happening at one time. My daughter cuts a tooth, has one to two days of being okay and then another starts coming in... and these top ones... well they took at least 2-3wks before they came through. I use the Hyland's Teething Tablets (they dissolve very quickly) and I have used Tylenol or the Baby Orajel before at bedtime to help her fall asleep. During the day though I would just use the teething tablets.

I can relate mine just got 4 in the past 3 weeks and 2 kast month. I give my daughter baby orajel. She used to eat it like candy, but has lately been refusing it. You can also give her tylenol to relieve the pain. I know a lot of moms like to suggest teething powder, which I might try soon if my daughter keeps fighting the orajel. You can also give her ice or even celery sticks to naw on.

I used some teething relief tablets that are availiable at most pharmacies. They all natural and you can give them when needed. And because they are natural they can't overdose if little fingers get into them. panadol didn't work but Nurofen did wonders!
