Is there something that I can give my child to relieve the pain of teething?

Is there something that I can give my child to relieve the pain of teething?

Yes: Teething is often blamed for periods of fussiness but it's hard to tell when it's really the cause. I'm fond of freezable teething rings that you can trade out as they warm up. You can paint benedryl on gums and get temporary numbing effect. Gels sold for teething but they occasionaly have side effects. All may just distract baby from another minor discomfort but if it helps, try it. ...Read more

There : There are small teething rings made to be frozen that you can let you child chew on. Sometimes a clean wash rag will do the trick also.

Help! my 6 month old is teething and in pain is there anything else besides bonjela i can use ?  Also can I put bonjela in the fridge?

Palliative or Tyleno: For teething pain you should first try to give your child palliative measures such as a teething ring. If the teething pain is severe you should give your child the appropriate amount of children's tylenol (acetaminophen). I do not recommond topical anesthetics for teething. I am not sure what bonjela is but you should always follow the directions on the back of any medication. ...Read more
