  • infant tylenol at night and during the day try using baby orajel or hylands teething tablets. also you can try a nice cold wash rag and let her chew on it.

  • don't use orajel. it hardens the gums and prolongs the teething process. We freeze the soft baby washcloths, use hylands teething tablets and gum o mile made by herbs for kids.

  • ok, so i found the best stuff ever!!! first of all, gripe water (mainly used for colic) is good for teething, and its really gentle on the body... but for something when they're really upset is called "teething tablets" you can get them at walgreens or walmart anywhere really... they're tiny little tablets that dissolve instantly on the tounge, and just in case you don'tt trust them you can just put it in a little warm water then give it to them.. they're also really gentle on the system, but very effective... my baby hasn't cried from teething since i found those when he was 3 months too... they're really awesome and cheap!! sometimes i feel like tylenol is too harsh on such a tiny little thing... try it out, i hope it works!!! :)
