Anyone's LO teething yet? If so how is it going? I think Evan is teething. I don't see a tooth yet but he has been drooling & chewing on his hands & basically everything else A LOT lately. Now the last couple days he has been virtually inconsolable at times; screaming & crying. Breaks my heart. I don't know what to do. No fever or other issues. We've tried Tylenol, Oragel, teething rings, cold wash cloths. Nothing really helps. Any advice?

McKinley isn't teething yet but they have these teething pacifier things that are supposed to be really good for teething. Maybe could try that? Saw them at babes r us and online.

I've seen those too but Evan really hasn't liked his pacifier much since he was about 8 weeks or so.

Ehtan has been teething since he was 2 and a half months old! I use the teething tablets and they work amazing for us. He doesn't like teething toys, so these are our only option! We've used Pediacare, and that seems to help when he's running fever with it, but I don't give it to him for pain.

Raini has been teething as well. When she gets super fussy I rub a little tylenol on her gums. she hates oregel with a passion. She has a teether but hates it. She prefers to chew on the handle of the pacifer, it has little bumps on it and though i have 2 older children, I never realized it was made for that purpose lol

I wouldn't say Josie is teething yet - all babies chew on their hands and whatever is in arms reach teething or not. Just be careful not to medicate for nothing more than normal oral exploration. I have used baltic amber necklaces for my last two kids and it is really calming for them.

He may be fussy because he is on the verge of some physical milestone or growth spurt. I have noted that babies get real cranky right before some 'firsts' -first time rolling over, first time sitting up, first steps, etc...

We went through a bout of teething at 3 1/2 months. He Has his two bottom teeth now and is a heavy chewer. He really likes cold teething rings and chewing on my shoulder lol. Dh used the teething gel while I was out and baby was fussy, he swears by it.

I wish Ethan's would just come on through already! And I wish he liked the teething toys. They started poking through at 2 1/2 months, and then they went back in at about 3 months and now they have been back the past couple weeks. I hope they come on through this time.

Hyland teething tablets work great for us, they are all natural. Spencer has a tooth coming in, and have tried cold.teething toys and wash cloths and he will chew on them bit only for a couple of min. I have given him tylenol for fever, but the tablets work best for pain.
