Anyone have teething advice for 6mo? I've heard horror stories about orajel.

    My daughter likes the nuby teethe-eeze and I would put them in the freezer for her to gnaw on later.

    We did frozen teethers, and teething biscuits. My youngest LOVED teething biscuits, I just made sure to stay right by her so she wouldn't gnaw off too big of a piece. Tylenol when she got fevers or was inconsolable. It's a tough thing to watch as a parent...snuggle, snuggle, snuggle, it will make lo and you feel better.

    Ive been adviced not to use anything that numbs the gums. It supposedly slows down the teething process.

    The hylands teething tablets were taken off market cause of belladonna in them I thought?

    The brand (Earths Best) makes a good homeopathic version of orajel or you can use clove oil. Other than that our little LOVED frozen bananas they helped a lot. Also you can take a nice soft rag soak it in the child’s apple juice then freeze it and let them chew and suck on it when it’s bothering them.

    Also REAL amber necklaces can help too, just be sure you buy a legit one there are many cheap knockoffs out there.

    What’s wrong with orajel? Oh no...

    Orajel causes the gums to harden which makes it much more difficult for the little ones teeth to cut through so it makes it a longer and more painful process. Also a HUGE HELP with our little guy was I would get the fruit purée pouches and freeze them in a ice cube tray and just pop one of them in a baby mesh feeder and he was happy as could be bcuz he got to eat a yummy treat and his gums stopped hurting!

    It’s a no no. Give your baby celery, frozen teething toys. But not those gels...

    Milk pops. I froze my breastmilk for my first child and made a popsicle. It worked like a charm. Something cold she WANTED in her mouth for as long as it lasted. Other things she’d spit out. Orajel wouldn’t work and I didn’t always wanna be giving her Motrin or Tylenol. Cuz she teethed constantly for a long time. She got all her teeth at once pretty much.

    Amber necklace has def made a huge difference for us. Tylenol with high temp. Frozen treats in mesh feeders are best and Camellis drops and Hylands calming tablets are my go tos.

    Definitely stay away from oragel because it can not only numb your baby's gums, but the back of their throat as well. Also, avoid the Hyland teething relief tabs because they are unregulated and dangerous...my pediatrician said that they are banned in the US now. My daughter has had a horrible time with teething and my pediatrician suggested cold, not frozen, teething rings, a cold damp wash cloth, and if all else fails Infant Tylenol. She said frozen things can actually irritate their delicate gums, but I don't know from experience because we just stuck to cold teething rings, cloths, and infant tylenol because that's what really seemed to work for our baby.

    My daughter is 4 mo.’s now and teething. So far teething toys are helping out and mesh feeder with frozen fruit. Also the Amber necklace. But when she’s really going through it. We give her Camilia drops. And so far, they seem to help her big time. And of course, endless love and comfort.

    Why is infant orajel not recommended?
