I have heard of the tablets for teething but never try them. I had try the oral gel but never work on my 1st one. Something I did notice was when I started to use baby floride water you can buy at grocerie store. That help my lil one so much after using it and all sudden it pop does teeth out early with out notice. With my 2nd one never use anything with the experiance of the 1st...Hope this help

Have you given the baby any tylenol before you put them to sleep? That seems to work for me. Also, when my son wakes up in the middle of the night, I feed him a little bit of milk, just to calm him down. If all else fails, I end up falling asleep with him. Which I hear you are not supposed to do, but it works for us. I hope that this helps a little bit.

My son is 3 months and 18 days ... His teething is horrible. Won't sleep at night screams in pain his gums are so swollen I give him tempra and baby oragel as soon as I put the oragel on he is calm .. If I don't put the oragel on his gums before feedings he won't eat :(

my doc told me to mix 1 teaspoon of maylox w/ 1 teaspoon of childrens benadryl and rub a small amount on their gums. The maylox numbs while the benadryl takes the swelling down. and it wont make their gums hard like orajel and make it harder for the teeth to come through. This worked great with my kids.

I was lucky to come by a quiet kept secret -- alot of women don't know but Gentle Nature's teething serum works miracles -- even when orajel, anbesol, or any of that other teething medicine wouldn't work and it can be found at most of your drug retail stores

get a new white washcloth wet it and frezze it then let him chew on it it will help the tough gums soften so the teeth will come on in a ease the pain
