I have read about many ways to help soothe teething. The methods that have really worked for me has been feeding my son cold applesauce. Also if you can purchase teething toys that have water inside. Make sure that the toy is not too hard. Keep the toy in a ziploc bag in the fridge and when you see your baby in pain give him the toy. Another thing that has worked for me has been Oragel a gel for teething.. i think that it numbs the gums. GOOD LUCK!!
You could put a clean, damp rag in the freezer for a little while and then let him chew on that. I found success using Gripe Water with my kids. It's good for teething, and also helps with gas. You can find it at CVS by the infant gas drops. When he's a little older, a great trick is getting a mesh feeder (they have them at Target) and putting frozen berries in it.
Believe it or not a friend of mine had told me to take a frozen tater tot and give it to her. she loved it . The cold to her gums and she was in heaven.
We found that my daughter likes frozen binky's. Hold them upside down under the fauct and water gets in the nipple and put in the freezer for 20 min/ half hour and voila! You have a frozen binky that feels great on their gums :)
Good idea, man you ladies are smart!
