  • She could be teething. Its up to you if you want to give her some Tylenol or not.

  • I give my daughter tylenol when she has a little fever from teething... and over night oral jel is amazing... she won't be all drugged up.. Its not that type of medicine..

  • I also suggest teething tablets and Tylenol. I won't go into why I would never reccomend ora-jel because someone always wants to come along and b%*@^ me out for it. So, I'll just say I never reccomend ora-jel, but tell EVERYONE about teething tablets! I love them!

  • Most four month olds don’t sleep through the night (defined as six solid hours of sleep). Many one year olds don’t sleep through the night. She may be hungry; she may be teething. Nurse her; give her hylands teething tabs, freeze a couple of damp washcloths.

  • It's normal for children to wake at night until they are 3 or even older.
