Teething Troubleshoot

I had to take baby boy in to the ER early Wednesday morning. UGH!! So scary! He had a fever of 100.5 but he felt like he was on fire. By the time we got to the ER his fever had hit 102. I heard that and was so thankful we'd brought him in when we did.

They gave him some tylenol and then had us wait to have him checked out by the doc. We got there at 5:30 a.m. and didn't leave till after 10:00 a.m. The wait stunk but they were thorough, even taking a urine sample from my little one.

They couldn't pinpoint any one thing. His eyes and ears were fine, and he didn't have any congestion, but the doctor said that it was probably a little virus. I personally think he's teething. He's been chewing on anything he can get his hands on and the drool, well, let's just say he goes through several t-shirts a day and leave it at that.

The good thing is that his fever has broken and he's doing much better now. He is still a bit cranky because of the teething though so I'm opening up the floor to your suggestions.

What remedies have you used to get your little one through these 'teething times'?
