That teething ring is like the things we have, but ours have a soft cloth over them. It reminds me of terry but it is lighter-weight.What worked for my kids was getting a teething ring like this one.
Freezing it and giving it to the baby. The cold helped the pain, and being frozen gave them something solid to bite against. ANd melba toast. That was good for them to bite.
We did these teething tablets with our last 2 foster babies -- worked wonderfully!Teething Tablets
These are homeopathic tablets that I got from Eckerds. Everyone I knew swore by them and they worked great for DD. What's more, when I was at my wits end with a wisdom tooth, I was rummaging through the medicine cabinet in desperation, saw the really old bottle and just swallowed the 2 tablets and powder at the bottom. It was like magic! Wonderful stuff.
And these are really, really soft. You put them under the baby's tongue and they melt in 2 seconds or less. I was worried about her choking (because it said tablets) until my cousin showed them too me. A baby couldn't choke on one, they're tiny and melt instantly.
