bowl of frozen peas. Lots to do, mostly outside, during the day, baby paracetamol/tylanol and Ibuprofen/nurafen together for night time. Charlotte chomped on her muslins, the cotton wraps you use for swaddling. She's kinda attached to hers. Worked for us, as well as can be expected. Each tooth for us was a week or two of broken sleep. She has them all now YAY!!

my daughter wouldnt chew on frozen things, she did like wet wash cloths but once she got a hold of my dads keys that was all she wanted, i realize its not exactly sanitary and there is the fear of them being sharp but thats what worked for her, we also used teylenol recommended by her dr

BTW- they don't sell the teething tablets here in the US anymore, they recalled them so that stinks.
But I used to freeze things and put them in the mesh teether for him to gum on. Like pieces of fruit or I would even put baby food (fruits usually) or juice into an ice cube tray and freeze them into cubes and put them in there, it works great. He could gnaw and suck on those things forever.

I've used many different things. they all do the same thing. You could give them a good size carrot to gnaw on or other such veggie they won't easily break and he can hold onto. Good luck

I let my son chew on frozen waffles. They're cold and they taste good. He loves it. I tries Orajel but he hated it. But I've been lucky and teething hasn't caused to much discomfort.

We love Humphries teething tablets! They work wonderfully and they are homeopathic so we don't have to worry about adverse side effects of some teething medications. I've heard Orajel isn't good to use on children under 2. When it gets really bad, we resort to baby Tylenol. Throughout the day we give her cold things to chew on and put ice in her sippy cup to make the water cold. She seems to really like that.

The teething tablets and oragel did not work for my son. The only thing that did work for him, and he still is teething is the teething mesh bags with the ring on it, we put frozen fruit in it and he loved it.

My daughter likes to chew on Plastic dress shoe that she had lying around, teething rings frozen, I also took the bib that was attached to my backpack walking tool I use for her and she loves to put that in her mouth, Ice cubes work awesome they are a mess though, anything frozen and put on her gums she loves that. Hope this helps good luck

We love teething pellets. My little guy also liked chewing on wet wash cloths. Some people freeze them but my son hated it frozen. We also used the mesh nets to put frozen fruit in them. We found that ibuprofen was better than tylenol too. We mostly saved that for night so he would sleep. Good luck!
