my son is 8 months old and still hasn't gotten any teeth. I feel like he's been teething for months. He'll get really fussy at bed time and keep waking up screaming! I put orajel on his gums and this seems to help most of the time. but the past 3-4 nights he gets up several times during the night screaming in pain i've used orajel and tylenol. I asked the doctor and she says the only way to know if he's teething is 2 weeks later he gets a tooth. Nothing yet and i still don't feel anything coming in. When did your children get there first tooth & what helped them w/ the pain???

my daughter just got her first tooth todayl She in nine months old yesterday. I found that putting water in binkies and freezing them worked great if they take binkies. For her being fussy i gave her colic tablets.

By far the best treatment I've found is Teethmed relief by Naturo Pharm. Do not use bonjela as it hardens the gums and makes it harder for the teeth to come through. 2.5ml of pamol if it gets REALLY bad, its not going to hurt him!

Take care xox
