my 6 month almost 7 month old daughter just recently started teething and her gums are very swollen and causing discomfort. She has always slept through the night but since she started teething she will wake up screaming a couple times through the night and i just figured it was because of her gums hurting...ive tried teething rings but she doesnt like them there too cold and ive also tried the baby orajel but she is just not having it...does anybody have any advise or other suggestion that I can try to help her with her sore gums and her teething

My 10 month old was teething recently and I gave her some Ibuprofen it works better because it's an anti-inflamatory. She hates teething rings since she started teething she just chews on her clothes or if you are giving her solids I gave my daughter teddy grahams she loves them and helps her gums or if you want something that dissolve quicker use the Gerber puffy things haha sorry that's what I call them, they look like little puffy stars. good luck I just started to be able to sleep again haha She's got 8 teeth now was getting them 4 at a time

A wet washcloth, it doesn't have to be cold, my daughter always preferred it to be frozen. She would just chew and chew until it was thawed out and I'd give her another one. In my opinion, the best and cheapest option.

Baby Tylenol, just follow the directions, make sure she doesn't have allergies to it, before bed. And my youngest didn't like the teething ring, but a cold rag she would sometimes chew on, and ice chips.

What ever pain relief you give whether it be panadole or what ever to help try putting it in a little warm water it seems to work better. Goodluck
