If you're currently struggling, you might be in luck. One mum has come up with a clever trick to help with teething traumas.
Emelia Jackson posted this great 'mom hack' on Facebook. She filled her baby's Soothie, a dummy designed for babies without teeth (newborns-three months), with water and popped it in the freezer for a few hours. This made a quick, soothing, ice-cold dummy to help comfort her baby.
The post had 116,000 shares and thousands of comments from parents eager to try out the simple hack.
Other quick home teething remedies include freezing breast milk into a lolly, chamomile tea, teething necklaces, teething toothpaste, teething toothbrushes or even a warm bath to help them fall into a deep sleep.
