I recomend WeeRascals Genuine Baltic amber teething necklaces. They are a traditional European remedy for baby teething, which have been used for centuries. A natural analgesic, amber will help to calm baby without the use of over-the-counter drugs and remedies. Wearing the Baltic amber close to the skin, allows the release of natural healing oils from the fossilised tree resin to help infants stay calm and more relaxed during teething.

They come in so many different colours and look amazing!

oohhh & for the posts about Tylenol, Motrin actually works better because the ibuprofen takes out the inflamtion that is causing the pain instead of just making them drowsy & covering up the pain with Tylenol

Hurrican Gel!! it is like orajel but wayyy better :) my youngest son started teething at 3 months & has yet to stop at 22 months the molars are the worst!! His pediatrician told us to go to the local pharmacy & ask for Hurrican Gel it is an over the counter gel that is safe for the little ones :) hope this helps :)

Quoting Heather:

I had tried everything too...and I didn't want to overly give my son tylenol...but I started using "teething tablets" they are all natural...so I don't have to worry about giving him too much too often. I give him two tablets whenever he shows signs of being uncomfortable (they've been lasting every 3-4 hours) They dissolve almost instantly which is awesome. Hope that helps :)



I use the teething tablets too, because i didnt want to over due the tylenol either, and i heard the oral jells wasnt a good thing to use. But the teething tablets work great!! they seem to help my son alot. and i give him two at time but you can give up to four if you feel that two isnt enough.

Jessica,

When my little one started teething, I got these pacifier sacks. I put ice cubes in them, also other frozen fruits and veggies. If she is crying constantly then let her cry. Just put her in her crib and leave alone...she wont' hurt herself...yes it is hard to do. But it will help you take a lil breather and then you can go and deal with her again. If all else fails, pass her to her daddy when he gets home. :)

I give my son some tyenol before he goes to bed...during the day teething tablets that are natural....but now since he is 17mths all his 4 molars are coming in at once....he likes flavor ice and we call it a summer treat he gets one a day and I give him the hard pretzels to help get the last one to finally break through.....sometimes the gel can hold up the breaking through process! Good Luck!

humpries. they are these tiny pills (teething tablets) just for babies and they dissolve in their mouth. You can go to any pharmacy and find them. They truly work.

Nelsons teetha, its been around for years. My mum gave it to me when i was a baby and i use it with my daughter now and its magic stuff, she gets really excited when she see's the packet because she knoows it will leave her pain free. All my mummy friends use it too now. Its a herbal remedy and is much better than any tablets or gels. Of course teething rings work too, i find the ones that have water in and u freeze them are the best.






where do u buy these? do u know if you can get them in Canada???





I dont know if you can get them in Canada. I get them from a shop called Holland and Barrots. Im pretty sure you could find them on the intrnet though. I was born in South Africa and i know they sold them there when i was a baby so im pretty sure you could find them.

Teething tablets worked for my boys. I get them here in KS at Walgreen's or Dillons/Kroger, but I'm sure there are other stores that carry them.

you can also talk to your doctor about it. Im not saying that this is the best thing but he gave her tylenol with codiene in it. I tried every wives tale, from the whiskey to teething tablets to cold ice NOTHING worked. We only give it to her as a last resort. It kinda helps take the edge off. but you can talk to your doctor cause some babies dont handle the pain as well as others.

Teethings rings work well, however it is a very good idea to put a wet washcloth in the freezer so that your baby has something to play with and chew on. I used teething tablets as well, and baby orajel too. There's also an old-fashioned way to help teething and it works whether if you disagree with me or not. I dipped my finger in a little bit of whiskey and rubbed it on my baby's gums and stuck a pacifier in his mouth afterwards. I didn't use this method very much. I used it only when my baby was crying non-stop if nothing else satisfied him.

My son hated teething rings. He wanted nothing to do with them. He did like popsicles, though. They're cold and you can get such a variety (we always buy sugar-free). We also tried the tablets, but that didn't work, so I used Orajel. They have a night-time formula that we put on his teeth right before he'd go down for the night and that really seemed to help. I also bought some gum brushes that you just slip on your fingers; they've got little knobs and ridges on them that feel good to them and help protect your finger from the full effect of a little biting down on you. I hope that helps.

Some teeth rings work nice. We would also use a wet wash cloth and put it in the freezer and Alexander really liked to chew on that. I would always rub his gums too cause that helps with the teeth coming in. I would also rub them with a little baby Tylenol at night. it seemed to help.

hiya. Before my boys were born i always sed i wouldnt use pamol but honestly, used in the right way it really is the best!!! Also if your bub likes ice blocks?? you can make lil ones or even just plainice.....water melon out of the fridge or cold apples.....a cold wet flannel for them to munch on.....those are some of the things that worked for me.....BUT one of the things i have learnt bout being a mum is everyones child is different!! You will find something that works for your bub. Just keep at it. And at the end of the day, teething isnt very nice when you actually think about what happening....just hang in there!!!!

Give her teething rings that have been cooled in the fridge, teething gels, let her gnaw on a toy. My son was teething for 5 longs months before he cut his first tooth. I ended up giving him calpol every now and then, letting him bite down on a damp flannel and even my chin! Good luck
