hylands teething tablets are amazing! they always helped my daughter. She hated orajel and other types like that since they numb your mouth. (i tried it once to see what it tasted like and it was awful and i couldn't feel my tongue.

my soon started teething at 3 months he's now 91/2 months with 10 teeth. i would let him suck on a cold whole apple, peach or frozen banana. it helped sooth his gums and was snack since they don't always want to eat when their mouth hurts.

Tylenol is a given, cold washcloths and my son liked sucking on an ice cube (hold on tight to it). Good luck, my 7 month old is teething again right now too!

I always used tylenol and orajel. I really liked the orajel that comes in a cue tip that youu break the end off and the medicine flows to the cotton swab, always worked for me. I remember those days good luck!!

My kids did well with the nighttime orajel and some tylenol or motrin....and just hope that they come in 2 or 3 @ a time! This will make the process go faster!

Tylonal! If your baby is cranky and not sleeping try giving them a dose of Tylonal to kill the pain at night. Those little razor blades are cutting his or her gums and it hurts thier gums and thier ears. I'm not suggesting drugging your little one all day but a dose or two of Tylonal will help you and them sleep better!

Try Tylenol @ bedtime to help with sleeping (you will need to check on dosage as my kids are WAY past this stage). do you let your baby chew on cold teething rings? you can even use washcloths that are cool and damp. just a thought. good luck...........gwen

Orajel or teething tablets usually work.. And sometimes it helps to give them the teething toys that you can put in the freezer. You've probably already tried these things tho. =) But its just a suggestion if you haven't!
