  • Teething is hard on little ones, and yes, it can inhibit their desire to eat, which is why they eat more frequently. Hang in there. Cold things are great. Take a cloth and get it damp and place it in the freezer, then after it gets really cold, frozen, go ahead and let her suck on it. Poor baby, teething can also cause stomach upset because they are drooling more.

    My son also teethed VERY early, at about 3 months, so around the same age as yours, it was rough. Not to scare you but he started at about 3 months and didn't stop til he had a full mouth of teeth including 2 yr. molars by his first birthday. So, they do get used to it and you will learn the tricks, just hang in there.

  • Give her some tylenol, my son is teething right now to. What else I found that works GREAT is the little brushes for babies that you put on your finger, I rub my babies gums with that and he loves it he stops fussing for a while, just rub his gums really light all over. You can buy them all walmart were the oragel and toothpaste is, you should try it, helps a lot
