My DD is 5 months old and has been teething for about 2 weeks. She can't get through naps or nightime without something to take away the pain. I use Camilia, which is a homeopathic remedy but she tosses and turns ALL NIGHT long, moaning and wakes every 1-2 hrs to feed for comfort. She is constantly exhausted! I have bought Motrin and Tylenol IN CASE she starts to freak out and scream (it's only happened once so far, thank gawd!) My concern is that first her gums show no sign that she's teething.. and if she's one of those babies who teeth for months on end, which I'm sure she will be how can you give your baby tylenol or motrin every night to help them sleep? Isn't that dangerous for their litttle bellies? Is it just better to let her be sleep deprived and cranky all day rather than give her meds all day, all night?Answer Question

Try the Hylands teething tabs instead, with frozen, damp washcloths and frequent nursing. 5 months is too young for ibuprofen and acetaminophen can build up in the liver.
