My daughter is 7 months old and has been teething for months now and still hasn’t cut a tooth. Well the week she seems to be in a lot more pain than before she also hasn’t been sleeping all that great. She will do a lot of 30 min intervals which really messes me up as well. I feel like I am floating about now LOL. My question is what can I do for her? Those teething tablets aren’t helping anymore, and Tylenol isn’t doing much at all. She won’t chew on cold things and the only time relief is give awake is with something hard to chew on. She seems to love to chew on her bottle nipple too. I am wondering I have never given her a pacifier before would lit be alright to let her have one to fall asleep? She wants to chew.
So question 1.What can I do to help more when everything else hasn’t worked.
Question 2. Can I give her a pacifier at night to help?
Thanks ladies :)

Baby ambesol(benzocaine) seemed to instantly soothe my DD. I think topical ambesol is far safer than repeated doses of tylenol, and more effective. I know first hand, I used it when my wisdom teeth pushed through. That was such agony, I don't even know how a little baby handles it. Oh yeah...Sponge Bob markets foam letters that are for bath time. They stick on the wall (water tension) and float, anyway they're safe for baby and she love to chew on them. They are really dense foam so she couldn't rip pieces off.

If your baby is in a lot of pain use the oral gel/ambesol, the benefits out way the risk. Complications are seriously rare and teething can be extremely painful. There is an article in Parents magazine about pain management in children and how so many needlessly suffer because of anal, overprotective parents and docs who are more concerned with any liability.
