Pedialyte makes freezer pops. They work great and have saved me from long bouts of screaming twice now. I will definitely be keeping them in the freezer for future teethings.

teething tablet work great for the front teeth but what I found for the back teeth was this little tool they have in the baby aisle at the grocery store it is origianlly used to help start babies on solid foods and is a mesh little bag with a rubber loop grip at the top and I put small ice cubes in the bag and closed it and let my son suck on it and chewy it and it worked great. They can't get it open so you don't have to worry about them getting the ice out and choking. My mom also suggested to me to put wet washclothed in the freezer and after they freeze to let my son chew on it and that also worked. I was told by my pediatrician not to give my son orajel after his first tooth started to come in because it can cause them to bit down on there tongue and lips. Good luck teething is just not a fun time.

My friend took binkies and filled them with water and froze them, my daughter loved them, but we didn't do it until she was about 1.5 because we were anti-binky. We also used the Hylands, Chamomila, and eventually when she started getting fevers associate with the teething of her molars, Infants Tylenol. Good luck!

I just bought my daughter the most expensive teether ever...Sophie the Giraffe! It's $20 but she loves it and has been knawing on it all day. Wet wash clothes, cold banana in the mesh feeders and anything made of terry cloth also works temporarily. I also just bought a hazelwood necklace so here's hoping that something works!.

A cold wet washcloth worked great for my baby (refrigerated, not frozen). Also, if you have one of those mesh food holders (eg Nuby Nibbler), you can give your baby frozen grapes or other food without worries about choking.

Frozen watermelon (wthout seeds) will instantly dissolve in baby's mouth so he won't choke. Be careful with Orajel - my sil is a dental hygenist and she hates it. She says it overstimulates the gums causing horrible pain initially which causes numbness.

I used teething rings but I also found all my three kids liked to bite down on a cold washer (rinsed in cold filtered/boiled water). Sometimes after I wet it, I would put it in the fridge for abit, so it stayed colder for longer.

Hylands teething tablets are absolutely the way to go. There is no taste, they dissolve instantly and work almost instantly too.

Try Hylands teething tablets they are totally natural homeopathic. They instantly dissolve, my babies love them and they work great!

Frozen Bananas! Or Frozen Peas. Those medications only make teething worse because it hardens the gums.
