  • After a recent article here on MoMs, I suggest you avoid those amber necklaces. I’ve never been convince of how effective they are, but now they’re a choking hazard, definitely avoid



  • Children’s panadol to alleviate some pain and teething rings.



  • Thanks for posting this question! I myself am finding this whole teething business a bit of a challenge due to lack of sleep from being up with a cranky and uncomfortable bub. Most of these tips I have used but at least teething won’t last forever.



  • Lots of things to chew on. Teething rusks are great. Fruit and veg sticks. Teething rings you can refrigerate. With a little help from Panadol when the pain is really bad



  • At our women’s & children’s hospital in S.A they have their own gel & it works a teat. Can try a cold wet facewasher to chew on. Even put it in the freezer first



  • Panadol to relieve pain and fever. You just have to let it pass.



  • buy some teething gel and give them something to bite down on



  • Try a amber necklace



  • An amber necklace worked a treat for my daughter.



  • bonjella – really helped with my two.



  • Have multiple teething rings which you can alternate from the freezer.



  • Put some teething toys in the fridge so there nice and cold for baby and toddlers gums when they bite and suck on it.



  • You can buy teething gel with anaesthetic it works well and also panadol then nurofen two hours after that so one every two hours



  • frozen fruit would help as well as a big chop bone to naw on as well as rusks and you can buy a cream to help numb the gums



  • I have also found that cold strawberries have been a big hit with my daughter lately… Especially since there is another big toothie on the way up…. The teething toys that go in the fridge can also provide a little relief but I find that they don’t stay cool for long enough.
