Use a small soft baby washcloth instead of one of the larger adult ones. Roll it up what before you put it in the freezer. There are medications available ranging from dissolvable tablets to gel that can be rubbed on the sore gums. The gel is analgesic and temporarily helps to numb the baby sore gums caused by teething pain. There is also over the counter children’s analgesic available. But with any of the medications, internal or topical, make sure you read the directions and follow them carefully when you give them to the baby. You can also fill a baby bottle with cold liquid.
