  • how old is your baby? my ds is 10 weeks, at 8 weeks he had some shots, doc gave me dose for tylenol. worked like a charm. i used it very sparingly, onlyy gave 2 doses. mortin is good too. if your baby is under 6 months, follow the box and talk to your doc. he has to figure it out via the weight of the baby.

  • Give him hylands teeting tabs, a frozen damp washcloth, lots of extra nursing (for comfort as well as nutrition)

  • breastfeeding is great for the teethers! so soothing! i do not recommend medication.
    the baby liver is not even fully functioning until at least 6 months tylenol and motrin is a lot of stress on a developing newborn.
