ANSWER #1 of 4

My oldest son loved to chew on wet clean washclothes. I always kept some in the refrigerator because the coldness seemed to help some. Massage your babies gums, that also gives temporary relief. Chew toys are wonderfull, especially if they're cold. I know this sounds odd but have you ever seen those silicone baking dishes? They have ones that are for cupcakes and a friend of mines baby always chews on them (also cold). They calm her down when she's teething.

ANSWER #4 of 4

Get them soft chew toys. I found that the ones that were filled with liquid worked well, and make sure you freeze them sometimes, as it's soothing to their gums.

You'll notice they have a fever sometimes, and usually your pediatrician will recommend a small dose of tylenol, however, check with your doctor BEFORE giving your baby anything.

Try a variety of chew toys for your baby as well, as different toys will work for different kids.
