My son is teething. Hes always cranky and doesnt sleep well. I have tried tylenol and that does work for about two hours. I need something else to do between tylenol. I'm a first time mom and dont know much but he cant fit teething rings in his month. I have one small one but he doesnt like the taste of it, I dont think. If that makes any since. Ill try to numb his gums with it but he just sticks out his tounge really mean. :( I cant give him oragel because the nurses hotline said hes too young, he might swollow some and numb his thoat and make it hard to breath. So that makes me nervous! HELP ME! My poor boy... I hate that its happening so young. Dont they say to that the later you get teeth the better/stronger they will be? That makes me nervous too. (oh he will chew on my finger forever but there is only so long i can stand it)

What about rotating between Ibuprofen and Tylenol? I know when my kids are sick, sick, that's what I do and I've been doing it for as long as I can remember. I just don't remember if 2 months is to young for Ibuprofen.
By rotating between the two, one kicks in while the other is wearing off.... OF COURSE CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST...but that might be an option.
