  • For fevers and fevers associated with teething I use Hylands Teething Tablets. They can be found at walmart and kmart and otehr local health food stores. There are NO side effects b/c they are homeopathic.

    Motrin and Tylenol are NOT safe.

  • FYI- homeopathic does not equal no side affects or complete safety.
    Motrin can only be used on babie I believ a year or older...I could be wrong (it might be 6 months) but I know for sure that it is okay ater a year. My little girl didn't seem to get releif from tylenol the last time she was sick so I tried motrin and it worked like a charm.
