when my son was little and teething we had the same problems nights with no sleep them the chemist advised me to give him medised which is good for teething and also makes them drowsy omg it was amazing worked that night i always used it when he had it bad...x

Try using Dr. Hylands Homeopathic teething tablets.U can buy them at cvs. they are better than teething gel which only relieves for a moment then it seems worse. Plus it is natural and has a sleeping agent. I swear by it I would use it again

You can also try taking a teething ring and putting it in the freezer till it gets cold, or if u dont have one of those take a wet washcloth (clean) and put it in the freezer till its nice and cold. frozen fry

We tried baby Orajel and Baby Tylenol with my daughter. That would work a majority of the time. When she would cry a lot and the orajel/tylenol didn't work, we bumped it up to baby ibuprophin. My mom-in-law always used Teething Tablets for her youngest. The only place that I've found that carries the tablets is Babys'R'Us. Good luck!

We used Orajel, but you can only use that in very small amounts. Infant Tylenol also works because there is pain reliever in it. My mom used a little bit of brandy rubbed on my gums, but they discourage that sort of thing nowadays!!! ;) hope this helped!!!

I give my son motrin before bed when he's cutting teeth. I tried the orgel but he doesn't like it. There is also a natual teething drop, I can't remember what it is called, but my friend used it for her son and it was the only thing that worked. It comes in a pink box with winnie the pooh on it. Also what helped with my son was taking a wet wash cloth and freezing it, then he would suck on it when it was bed time.--he wouldn't take a teething ring.

when my sons were teething i used whiskey to numb the gum. just put in your finger or a qtip. oral gel makes the gums tough. you could also get i wash cloth wet and freeze it and use it like a teething ring. those always worked for me. good luck
