Try a frozen yogurt Popsicle. The cold will feel good, and they taste good too.

Get the mesh food teethers and fill with fruit, then put in freezer..works great during day. Frozen washcloths can help too. I've seen people post about using essential oils but never tried. Pediatricians recommend infant Tylenol every 4 hours or infant Motrin every 6/8 hours. Dosage depends on LO weight. Good luck I'm dealing with it too.

DONT USE ORAJEL! if the child swallows it..it can make their throat numb and cause them to choke. Every pharmacist and de has told me that and I studied it in nursing school. I use infants ibuprofen and freeze teethers
