Frozen bagels worked when my first baby was teething. I got the blueberry ones that were cut in half length wise, then I cut them again and again; and froze them. They don't freeze solid so they get kinda 'yucky' but they helped him a LOT and made for some great pictures as well. I know parent's who swear by homeopathic teething tablets and drops, that's what I plan on using asap. A cool wash cloth helps too or teething rings and if you are gping to be out and about, get a small collapsible cooler and put the teething rings in there with ice. Of course, my finger works well right now and he seems to like it.



Good luck. Baby tylenol helps if baby is suffereing a lot, but ask your doctor for dosage, do NOT try to 'guess' how much.

I agree with amber stay away from the baby orajel. Teething tablets are amazing. Both of my kids loved teething on cold carrots. You don't have to worry about them choking and it lasts a long time. The only down fall is it will leave orange on their clothes, I never had any problems getting it out with oxyclean but I wouldn't recommened a white shirt.

Stay away from Orajel it makes their gums hard and therefore the teeth have a harder time breaking the gums. I gave my 2 year old son the large hard pretzels wit all the salt removed. They are big enough that they can't choke and they will get gummy as they get nasty.

I let my son chew on sugar free freeze pops because the cold feels good on their gums. Teething has been our biggest challenge so far, but my pediatrician said the earlier they teethe the easier it will get, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

If your baby teething is really bothering him, we use infant motrin. The pediatrician recommended over Tylenol since it reduces the swelling more. Teethers work great too, if your son will hold them! (mine won't because they're cold!).

As Stephanie already suggested, teething tablets, baby orajel, and a frozen baby rag worked great for my son!
