My son is teething really badly. Teething toys aren't really helping. Are there any teething gels or powder that you would recommend?

Never heard of any teething powder. There is teething gel, Dentinox. I won’t recommend that though.. Have you tried this kind of teething feeder? My girl loves it. We always put frozen/cold fruits inside. It’s cold and sweet, so they will usually accept it unlike regular teething toys. Sometimes we freeze my bm and put it inside for her to suck on it also. Can be used even when they are older, not just when teething. Sometimes sick, no appetite. Then we freeze yogurt and put it inside the feeder for her. https://welovesupermom.com/products/30305-sassy-teething-feeder-2-pack-teething-feeder-replacement-bags

Try Barley water. Barley has natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and is super easy to make. Soak 1 cup of barley overnight and then cook barley with 2 1/3 cups of water for about 15 minutes. Drain excess cooking water and save. Once it has cooled you can rub some on inflamed gums

Nothing with chemical is good for your baby. Try to avoid where possible. I've heard good reviews about this teething toothbrush that can also double up as a teether. The size is just right and the handle prevents choking. I'm going to buy it soon and it should be available in kiddy palace.

I gave a Biochem(sister branch of Homeopathy) medicine, which are sweet and easily disoluble-.....never get stuck in throat or mouth. Its name is Calcarea Phos 6×. Very and Quick effective in terms of soothing and aids in teeth coming too.

Teething gels aren't a good option as they contain benzocaine which causes adverse effects on infants. You might want to try some home remedies like: 1. chilled bananas 2. rubbing clove oil on the gums. 3. Ice slush :)

If you are still breastfeeding, try freezing your breastmilk into a pacifier with its case. It's economical and nutritious! :) Otherwise, you may substitute milk for yoghurt or formula.

I wouldn't recommend teething gels. You could try freezing the teething rings. My daughter enjoys it alot.

We used this on baby and it makes her feel much better. It's natural - coconut oil, clove oil and stevia
