Help! Teething advice..

My little one is just about 8 months now and his teeth are about to arrive! He has been waking up randomly in the middle of the night crying, irritated and refuses to go back to sleep. I have tried the orajel but it lasts for 4-5 minutes and he's over it, back to crying. I have tried humphrey's also and no luck. Help! Any tips, any advice, anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance everyone!

Hurricaine Gel! I used it for my son. It's OTC, but I had to have the pharmacy order it, as they didn't keep it in stock. I've heard that Orajel can actually harden the gums, making it more difficult for the teeth to break through. Not sure if it's true or not, though. I tried the teething tablets a few times, but they never did anything for him. My daughter hasn't been nearly as bad, so I only give her ibuprofen or acetaminophen before bed, and she's generally fine the rest of the day.

So after calling around, I placed an order and will be picked up for Monday. Hopefully he won't pull all my hair out the next few days.

I know how bad it sucks, feeling like there's nothing you can do to help I remember my son walking around with his fingers shoved in his mouth, gnawing on them. And just plain being miserable all the time. I hope it works for him(and you!).

Aww! That is what my little one is doing. Plus, he's biting everything in sight, including my knees. I hate feeling like there's nothing I can do for him especially when he looks at me with his frowns. Thanks a bunch!

The only thing that got/gets us through teething is nursing...

Man! When I went to buy teething tablets I was on the crosstreets of getting humphrey's or hyland's. Humphrey's was recommended by a family friend but didn't work. I think I'll be making another visit to the local cvs tonight! And I only wish I was still nursing. I tried so hard for 4 months drinking tea (mother's milk tea), the "chinese" herbs, veggies, water, but I had no results. Thank you for the advice, I appreciate it!

I'll second the Hyland's. They work like a charm for my daughter. Another brand that works for her is Boiron's.

none of those things worked for either of my boys
both were relieved the most with Tylenol.
i also used to wet a washcloth and freeze it..then let them chew on it.

I tried all the tablets and gels. If it gets really bad, my doc recommended alternating tylenol and motrin. Because each can be given every 6 hours you can give them 3 hours apart from each other if you alternate. Tylenol then 3 hours later motrin then 3 hours later tylenol.

I know many people are not fans of meds... but I am and the doc was ok with it, so I am just passing on the advice! Not all the time but when it is so bad they can't sleep.

And motrin lasts longer anyways.... so I would always give that over tylenol if i only needed to give one.

Thanks everyone! He just has it really bad at night. During the day he's calm and just chewing everything, but come bedtime, he's a little monster hehe. Last night, I tried a bit of tylenol because I couldn't run to get Hyland's but I'll get that today and see how it goes. The tylenol didn't do much for him either. Ahhh, the perks of parenting.

I guess I got super duper lucky and never really had bad teethers.

On the rare occasion they were a little fussy, I guess nursing helped us through it, like Liz said.

I'm not recommending this but on a baby board people were saying they use to put whiskey on their babies gums when teething.
