  • It is completelu normal for babies to want to sleep. Not all babies stay awake screaming because they are teething. I got told that and when My oldest son got his 1st teeth I didnt know untill I saw them! And he was like that will all his teeth no problems at all. And I dont know anything about orajel because Im from Australia and you have different products then we do. We call it bonjela. hehe

  • Feel lucky yours is. Yes all babies handle getting teeth differently. Mine wouldnt sleep to save his life and was always stuck to me like glue. I have to use a kangroo pouch as I call it when he gets teeth and as uncomfortable as he looks he will sleep in it while I do things or just sit. My son also hates the orel gel. I still use it but if he just will not let you use it try teething tablet. I use those also and he likes those much better. They are just a little tablet that disolves in there mouth and is berry flavored I believe. They work get. Good luck

  • my son is getting his first tooth and he sleeps like his dad only gets up to eat and since he is only 3 months old i cant use orelgel yet though i doubt he would let me if it isnt food he doesn't want anything to do with it. And right when i was just getting used to him playing most of the but he still sleeps through the night.
