My poor baby and teething :(

She's 13 months.She had her first 8 teeth (the 4 top front and the 4 bottom front) come in pretty much all at one time when she was 5 1/2 months old. Then her teeth gave her a break for awhile.Now, she's been waking at night screaming and being fussy during the day and I figured out why, she has 4 more teeth coming in all at once again! He poor little gums are so red and swollen.The little white tips of the teeth that are breaking through are poking out. I've been giving her tylenol for it,its' the only thing that helps. Why do they have to come in all at once like that? There should be a rule that thats not allowed to happen,lol.
