  • None.

    If you'd like a doctor to tell you go ahead and call the pediatrician. An infant of that age is to ingest breastmilk or formula only. Medications administered under doctor's orders only.

  • Asking the same question, repeatedly is NOT going to get you different answers. You'll just piss off the people that are TRYING to help you.

  • Wet a washcloth. Wring it out so that it is damp. Put it in a zipper bag and put it in the freezer. After it has chilled, put a big bib on the baby, and give the cold washcloth to the baby, putting the corner into his or her mouth. Baby will either like the cold on his/her sore gums or not. If yes, you have an easy non-medicated way to soothe a teething baby.

  • The same ones we told you about last time. NONE. Doctors are shying away from benzocaine (the active ingredient in most remedies).
    And chances are at 3 months this is not teething. Show us pics of the erupting teeth, and maybe we will change our tune.

  • It's not teething at 3 months, it's GAS! Burp more & keep the baby upright for at least 1/2 an hour after feeding.

  • It can be teething at three months. The misery starts long before the teeth show. Drool and gnawing of hands are the early warning signs. Waiting for erupting teeth is like waiting for your house to be fully engulfed before calling the fire department.

    Hyland's teething tablets work for some moms. Baltic amber teething necklaces can also help, and so can raw sweet onion rubbed on the gums.

  • Great question for your child's doctor or the pharmacist.
