My daughter is starting to teeth her gums are swollen and it seems like everytime I put her down for a nap or she screams like shes in pain. I took her to the Dr today and they said her ears look good so its not an ear infection. I just gave her some Infant Motrin for the pain is that okay to do???

  • It's always a good idea to ask the Dr. before giving pain meds. How old is she? Have you tried infant orajel? There are also homeopathic teething tablets that some people swear by.
