    I was really lucky with my little girl that she had no problems teething she has had more problems with her baby tooth falling out!

    For my little lad I rubbed the powders on and if really bad calpol.

    My little one has just started teething so I would really appreciate one of these. She is trying to chew anything and everything she can get her hands on. I a using the little teething rings that you keep in the fridge so they are nice and cold for her but when we are out and about it’s a bit of a struggle.

    Nelsons teething granules were very good!

    My little lad has had bad teggys coming in so we have been using powders like the teetha ones or A&P ones. Also have
    Add some diluted juice (suger free ) ice lollies and he has been having a munch on them 🙂

    With my son nothing worked, but this time I am prepared with my daughter. She is currently wearing an amber anklet as amber is supposed to help with teething pain 🙂

    My 6 month old is just starting to show the signs of teething (dribbling more, red cheeks, a high pitch squeal every so often whilst pulling at his mouth and putting absoloutly anything and everything into his mouth) so this would be great for him when we’re out and about.

    We have some cold teething rings for the fridge but he doesn’t like cold things in his mouth…not even particularly fond of yogurts because they’re cold! So i’ve stocked up on baby Bonjela and a couple of bickie pegs =)

    I found Nuby teething rings invaluable. It has many different textures and shapes which she loves exploring. The blue ridged oval is the current favourite.

    With my son nothing worked but with my daughter I am prepared and she is already wearing an amber teething anklet which is supposed to help with teething 🙂

    Bonjella works.

  15. May 6, 2011 / 11:05 pm

    When my son was teething, I would cut up pieces of carrot and cucumber for him to hold onto and gnaw against, it really seemed to help him, especially when they were nice and cold from the fridge 🙂

    If I won I would give the gift to my lil sis for her baby, she would love it 🙂

    My baby hasn’t started teething yet, hence why this prize would be wonderful! I imagine I’ll buy a teething ring & keep it in the fridge so it’s cold & soothes his gums.

    I’m pregnant with my first child, so haven’t had the experience with teething yet, but we have bought dentinox in preparation and a teething toy which we hope will help.

    I helped my daughter with her teething by giving her chilled cucumber sticks from the fridge to chew on – it really helped 🙂

    My health visitor advised that I allow my son to chew on cooled pieces of raw fruits and vegetables, such as apples and carrots* That always seemed to do the trick.

    *Always supervise your baby to avoid the risk of choking.

    My daughter didn’t have too many problems with teething. Bickypegs were good I found. My son hasn’t started teething yet so I may be in for a rough ride this time and be in need of the beautiful necklace.

    my sons teeth were so sharp he punctured one of his teething rings! took me ages to work out why he was soaked…

    he is older now and actually struggling teething his big front teeth, there isn’t anything for big kids teething their adult teeth, tempted to get him one of these to wear himself!

    i found that carrot sticks put in the freezer great for teething little ones. cold to help soothe something hard to crunch on and in case they are hungry food too!

    With J I found the most effective thing to be ashton and partons powders, I’ll definately be using them this time around!

    I have a large rainbow crystal pendant on a silver chain that my 8month old constantly tries to chew. So worried she will snap the chain or the pendant will come off but she really likes it.

    Teething powders and calpol. A teether from the fridge and bickipegs to gnaw on too

  39. May 11, 2011 / 4:28 pm

    My daughter has just started teething and unfortunately nothing is working so far. We have tried giving her Nelsons Granules but she just vomits them up, we have tried Calpol but doesn’t seem to make a difference and at the moment she is too little too hold a teething ring or toy for too long.
    This is why we think that the Gumigem would be perfect for us!! 🙂

    May 11, 2011 / 5:14 pm

    i find both the gel and powders work, my son is teething and likes to chew his hands alot. try a little calpol if they wont settle at night x

  41. Kelly Padwick
    May 11, 2011 / 9:30 pm

    Lots of comfort and an old fashioned teething ring 🙂

  42. May 11, 2011 / 10:28 pm

    I use Bickie Pegs for my daughter but she is just as happy to chew on a toy or a finger!!

  43. Sionedwyn
    May 11, 2011 / 10:51 pm

    My littlest is suffering badly 🙁 Ashton & Parsons and Nelsons Teething Granules seem to help a bit, but one of these would be great! 😉

  44. Colette Hallinan
    May 12, 2011 / 7:30 pm

    Calpol and Calprofen doubled up but for the most part he didn’t really suffer that much!

    I found teething rings impractical as many are too big to to get in the mouth – Bonjela teething gel helped to numb the area

  46. SARAH MILEY
    May 12, 2011 / 8:27 pm

    We use teething granules & facecloths which have been in the freezer are great for little mouths to chew on!

    My main helping hand re teething has been to make sure Daisy has a soft bib on at all times to catch the enormous amount of dribble 🙂 Othere than that, teething granules and lots of cuddles seem to be doing the trick and keeping her relatively happy.

    Teething means meditation

  52. May 13, 2011 / 6:20 pm

    Calpol, Bongela & teethers mostly.

  53. Rebecca Henderson
    May 13, 2011 / 8:57 pm

    My little ones been teething for a month solid and still no teeth 🙁 We helped her with frozen carrot sticks, ashton and parsons, Frozen teething toys, teething gel toys. I’m hoping they come through soon!

  54. nicci cowdell-murray
    May 13, 2011 / 10:30 pm

    bonjela and lots of cuddles …its been hard work …also we have a little teether you put in the fridge thats helped a lot x

  55. Leonie Sanford
    May 13, 2011 / 10:48 pm

    Bonjela & distraction techniques seem to be working for the most part

  56. christopher murray

    calpol and patience was the main way we dealt with it ….oh and lots of help off our mums 🙂

  57. babycrazzee

  58. christopher murray

    bongela, calpol and lots of help and advice off our mums

  59. May 23, 2011 / 8:05 am

    Bonjela and fruit icecubes in his Nuby Nibbler. God send!

  60. Annie O.

    My son wouldn’t chew on teething rings, so I’d wet the end of a washcloth and put it in the freezer. It was cold, yet soft and soothing. Now if my 10 month old little girl ever gets teeth we’ll get to try it again!

  61. Charlotte L
    January 20, 2012 / 7:35 pm

    The pain was mostly at night, and worse when Isabelle was lay on her back – so after a generous (but appropriate!) amount of calpol we propped her up on her side for a cozy and less painful night’s sleep!
