We used the teething tabs at night, they didn't last all night for us though.
During the day, my son loved to chew on cold slices of green bell peppers. They are sweet, a good source of nutrition, the skin is tough enough that he can chomp for a while, and I can cut them long and skinny so they reach the back of his mouth where he had the most pain (molars).

My 19 month old loves the teething biscuits and sliced fruit. I try to keep an apple or a pear in the fridge ready to go. He doesn't like anything frozen.

Teething tabs help with the pain,and for the chewing i say give baby anything that is hard,non-toxic and resists major drool.
when I was a baby,i theethed on a leather key chain. All 3 of my nephews used plastic key chains,and my 2 daughters chose clean,frozen wash clothes

I used to put a facecloth into the freezer and let them chomp away! That and a good teething gel! x

We do frozen whole greenbeans while she sits in the high chair, teething rings, teething tablets, infa-feeder w/ ice cubes or a cold wet baby rag for her to chew on! Hope this helps!

I would put ice in a damp wash cloth and secure it with a rubber band, this seemed to work really well.

The best thing is for teething . They have little pills for infants you put in water it disloves by itself then at night they sleep threw the night.You can get it CVS stores.

through the day, Charlotte loves chomping on frozen peas, and her muslin cloths. She carts them around where ever she goes, like Linus.



At night when she's trying to sleep, and can't sleep and cries and cries, she has paracetamol, or ibuprofen. I used to use Brauers Teething Relief, but it doesn't really work for really strong pain.



She's 14 mths, has 8 teeth, and her molars are just starting to move about.

I gave my daughter teething biscuits and rusks as she enjoyed them. I also used teething gel for the evenings to help her settle.x

I love Hyland's teething tablets.... and a dose of baby Tylenol doesn't hurt either.

As far as soothing foods, A piece of frozen fruit like a strawberry wedge, or a wedge of kiwi... Walmart even sells these little pacifiers with a mesh bag to hold the fruit while the baby chews.

Those cheap popcicles in the plastic wrap...

(image) http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/je... I wrap one in a paper towel and secure it with a rubber band. He will fight you if you try to take that back! The paper towel also does a great job of catching all that extra drool too.

He dearly loves chewing on the rubber top of the tylenol bottle.. so when I empty one I wash it out and peel the label for him. I don't let him chew on the bottle that still has the medicine in it... I am afraid he will puncture the top and overdose. The paper label will fall apart if he chews it, so I always peel the label too.

I gave mine Frozen or cold carrots..he seemed to love it to death! The cold helped with the pain and since the carrot is hard it helped with the breaking through of those baby chompers
