Topic : What Is the best way to help relive baby from teething?
mznaynay - `10` `2012-07-13 14:14:23`  
Well I've used bonjela to help numb the gums but if he starts to scream out in pain then thats when I give him the pamol which kicks in. Ive even used a cold carrot or cold apple cut in to slice  easy for baby to grip on to numb the pain but it only works for only about 15mins. I've even tried washing my hands and put a finger in hes mouth and give it a massage which helps for about hlf an hour. I've tried gripe water but that was when he was about 3months when he started teething and now hes 5months old and stil no teeth gripe water dosnt work bt it diffently helps with the hicups. His teeth is a real stubborn one any other offers?

Hiya, I think at 5months (and 3 months) it may not be teething -this is pretty young (but sometimes happens) for teething from what I understand.

I have also used bonjela (but your son was a bit older - 12 months +), and the odd does of pamol., but I really like the naturomed (?) Teething spray - two sprays after brushing his teeth seemed to work wonders...especially over night.

I've also used the teething salts which are natural and seem very good - they're like kiddie Coke!...they love them - he pickes them up and eats them without any fuss...

I've also tried the teething powder which you can put in their milk/food/water etc when you need too - natural again

Our poor guy has really struggled with teething lately (his first molars are through now thankfully, but there were lots of sleepless nights! for all of us!)

I hope some of these help you...they get through it eventually...but I'd suggest checking if there is something else as it may not be teething just yet..just a thought (maybe wind?)

Good luck! :)

I used a combination of teething salts (new era 450 tabs, disolves on the tounge) pamol and a amber teething necklace - and if it got really bad i would rub some bonjela on her gums, i found that with the amber necklace she didnt dribble much from teething which lead to having a rashy chin

Just noticed this morning little miss one is cutting molars, no wonder she has been out of sorts.

We used homeopathy pills that really helped with teething. Also I agree with gonzze, the frozen teething rings work very well to soothe those aching gums.

My children have allways liked the teething rings that you put in the freezer they helped a lot.I all so use a teething spray i find  that works good

I used to use weleda teething powder which worked really well combined with Pamol if the pain got really bad... my baby has teeth which are taking ages to cut through too...I also use a little mesh pouch which we got from the supermarket and put frozen apple in it so he can chew on that and he seems to like it.
I hate to say it but teething is just one of those things that you can't get away from, if they're like my kids and cross cut their teeth plus take ages for them to cut through, it's just a matter of trying everything to easy the discomfort a bit... thankfully it soon passes. I feel for you though as I'm dealing with teething issues too.

Have you tried a amber necklace? My daughter has one and since having it she hasn't had such a hard time teething. Poor little things it's not nice is it.
