HELP!!! My 3 month old is teething, what do I do?!

I think my daughter is teething, but I don't see any nubs or anything, but she's in pain and only 3 1/2 months only... what can I do? I've tried gel chewies, cold wash cloths, baby orajel, my finger... Im out of ideas :( It breaks my heart to hear her cry like that...

  • my son is almost 6 months and has been teething since about 3 months. Give her some tylenol when she's really hurting, otherwise let her chew on your finger or a carrot and other nubby toys. I don't like oragel myself, but if it gives her some relief then that's an option for you. There's also Hylands Teething Tablets that I've heard good things about. It's a process and will take time. Just try and cuddle her and do the best you can.

  • rub a dab of brandy on her gums, tylenol 1 hr later. i know the brandy isn't every ones cup of tea, but it worked for by babies. the healthy moms org says its ok, just don't over do it!!!
