Yes: Teething tablets seem to help for most of my patients without any side effects. Cold teething items also are soothing for teethers.

What are they?: I am not sure what a teething tablet is but if they do exist they might be a tablet that contains an oral topical anesthetic like in orajel. It is a natural process and most kids do come thru it with minimal trouble. Should you little one be badly bothered try something that is very cold to suck or chew on. There are items you can buy to place in the freezer and let you child chew away.

Teething remedies: Babies who are teething sometimes get pretty ornery. Chewing on safe, nontoxic cold teething toys or on an ice-cold wascloth can help. Also, some people find homeopathic teething remedies like boiron's camilia to be effective.

Bagels!: I like frozen cocktail bagels. The cold numbs the gums, the hard bread helps push the teeth out, and the kids seem to like working on it.
