  • My baby is teething with her first tooth now. I give her Motrin when she runs a fever and when her gums are bothering her but she doesn't have a fever I give her the teething tablets mentioned by a previous poster. They seem to really help her.

    One time they were bothing her so bad that I gave her a popsicle (don't know if I should have done it or not) and that seemed to relieve her for a while.

    I've tried putting teething rings and pacifiers in the fridge/freezer but she likes to chew on things on the sides of her gums and can't get those things into her mouth enough to help.

    Good luck and feel free to message me if you want to compare notes about what we're going through.
