What are people using for teething these days. Bonjela does not seem to be working.

I use Orajel and bought him some teethers that you put in the fridge and he bites them while cold. That seems to help him alot. I also give him some Tylenol when I see his gums red and swollen (not too often, but only when he is lots of pain together with the Orajel). He has been doing pretty good so far.

I'm a fan of trying non-medicine remedies first. the ole' stand-bys: ice in a washcloth to chew on, a large carrot (just watch for any pieces that come off) cold washcloth that u wet and stick in the freezer, ur finger (if there aren't any other teeth in there). for night time we've also raised the crib up a little so her head wasn't completely flat. (laying down flat can make the tooth ache more) i've even slept holding her in the recliner (well, she slept..lol) baby oragel worked for a while and tylenol for teh really tough times. there is also a great teether for the molars in teh Leaps and Bounds catalog (u can find it online at leapsandbounds.com)

my little guy seems to really like those teething tablets. he can put them in his mouth on his own. or my fav is homeopathic teething drops by gentle naturals. they use to carry it at target but it's getting harder to find. I've just been ordering it when the bottle is low but if you just google homeopathic teething drops it should come right up. it's like $5 a bottle but it lasts awhile. It's all natural stuff so if you give it often it's ok! the oragel stuff works i think on the front teeth but not all the other ones. I hope that helps!

We use the Hyland's Teething Tablets. We also have used teething drops which seem to actually work a little better and tend to be a little cheaper. When it gets really bad, we rub baby orajel on her gums. She also likes to chew on frozen baby wash cloths. We just get them damp and put them in the freezer. They don't take very long to freeze and she loves them when her teeth are hurting. Hope this helps!

I swear by Hylands teething tablets. You just pop a couple in their mouth and voila, crying stops. They are homeopathic. You can usually find them in the vitamin section. I also use Tylenol when it is really bad.

We use the homopathic teething tablets and homopathic teething gel. Ashley has been getting teeth since she was 3 months old. Her last one is coming in now. I heard from our pediatrician that once this is in, we will get a break until the 2 year molars come in.

Oh! We tried the Oragel and she didn't like it. So I tried it - ugh! It's an awful taste and feeling. That's when we went to the homopathic teething gel. Much better.
