Teething: You can use teething gel, but using something cold may be more effective. Try using half of a frozen bagel to have him gnaw on.

Ok : Teething gels can help. You cam also freeze a wet washcloth and let your baby suck or chew on that.

When tooth erupts: As teeth erupt babies can be fussy, sleepless and irritable, lose their appetite or drool more than usual. Try rubbing their gums with a clean finger, a small cool spoon or a moist guaze pad. A clean teething ring or pacifier will help.
