  • not really much to do, just wait and see if a tooth pops up :) and tylenol will help if she has pain from it, or try teething tablets!

  • Same symtoms with my daughter she will be 3 months on the 9th. I put the Baby Oragel in the freezer. I got the cooling cucumber flavor. She couldn't stand the orginal or nightime. My Lily rejects teething rings at any temperature. She gnaws on my fingers and arms. Seems to soothe her to sleep. She tries to use my nipples as teething ring also.

    Good Luck to you. If you find any other remedies that seem to work, please let me know. Thanks

  • My daughter hates teething rings. Tylenol works, though you should probably alternate with motrin just so she doesn't start to build up a resistance to it. Also walgreens and target carry this stuff called Gripe Water, it's more or less for colic but it works wonders to help with the tummy aches from teething. My Hailey has also started napping on her tummy in my lap. I guess she likes the warmth.

  • I've also heard that frozen waffles and bagel pieces are good for them to chew on, though they get kinda nasty when they're done.

  • With our daughter, we used the Orajel teething swabs. We also alternated between Motrin and Tylenol. She also liked teething rings.

  • oh munchkin makes a thing that you can put like a peice of apple in and its mesh and made for them to chew on without getting big peices to choke on... that way if she doesnt like a teething ring she can get the flavor of the fruit...
