We've never had major issues with teething but when i knew my daughter was not feelin too good from them, we always alternated a couple times with motrin & tylenol and gave her a couple teething tablets each time.. always worked and we never had problems. plus the teething tablets taste good to them.

My sister used Hylands natural tablets. She said that it worked really well.

All the teething ideas are great, we did the wash clothes in the freezer! Make sure it is the teething though. At 9 months they sometimes are smarter than we are. He may be just trying to see who runs things. With our first we let him cry it out at 8 months and never made the mistake again with waiting so long for the other 4. Regular bed time and routine, a comfort object, and telling him it is time to be in bed all night you will see him in the morning is good. If he wakes set a timer for 10 minutes to see if he will comfort himself. Sometimes that is all that they need. Also if at all possible, nap when he naps so you will have the stamina to stick with what eve night time plan you have decided on. Hope it goes better soon! I always say by the time you figure out what to do they a grown and you have something new to figure out, and it is such a blessing to know they are making progress!

I was told my my son's pediatrician to give him some apricot brandy now I know this sounds weird but all you do is put a little bit on your finger and rub on gums, don't place it in the bottle or use a whole lot of it. If that don't work I buy those teething tablets from walmart and place that in the forumla and bottle and it works wonders also.

ibuprophen was recommended by my ped for most everything and i swear by it and the nighttime formula of orajel to get through the night. (#3 is 11mo old and working on a mouthful) he does really like teething toys and rags (not cold though for some reason) during the day..actually, anything he can chew on works. hope this helps.

Oil of Clove!! a tiny dab on the end of a q-tip works wonders!! it's a natural numbing agent. My daughter's pediatrician recommended it. Beware...it makes a baby drool and drool and drool but you will get almost instant relief and those teeth will pop right thru!

Tylenol never worked for my son neither did baby orijel, we have to try natural mathods, we would take a damp washcloth and throw in freezer for 30 mins then give to my son and let him chew on it it helped soooo much better than any stuff u can buy at store.

With my daughter I use Tempra during the day and Motrin at night. I use the Motrin at night because the pain relief last longer and she is more likely to get some really good sleep (and me too) if I use that. Also I give her the cold teething rings during the day and I keep her paci's in the fridge to keep them cool so that when she wants a paci it helps relieve some of the pain.

Try giving him tylenol for the sore gums and a cold teething ring. My son has four teeth and his about to turn ten months Friday. Nights when he's fussy, I just put him in the bed with my husband and I. I know it may be a bad habit, but what good are you to your child if you're tired the next day.
