10 month old teething and waking up every hour at night....advice?

She's been doing this for the last 4 nights...I am so tired!! Anyone have any advice? I know I probably just need to wait it out but I really need some sleep! Tylenol doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I've also tried ambesol and Lil Teethers and they work but wear off so fast...

  • Go to Target and look for something called Teething Tablets. I can't remember who makes them. You can give baby up to 3 every 15 minutes. When my son was a baby, I only had to give him 2 and he was fine. When I put him to bed, I'd give him 3 tablets, a dose of Tylenol and he was good for the night.

  • We just went through this for about a week and let me tell you I was as cranky as she was! It felt worse than when we first brought my DD home. I tried baby orajel, teething tablets, tylenol...all were just temporary fixes until the next wake up. It did pass though and for the last 3 nights she has slept beautifully through the night. I just made sure I tried to plan her naps so that we were home and I could nap when she did.

  • oh mama i feel for you but here is your answer it works like a charm at least it did with both my kids teething tablets and childrens Ibuprofen it says 2 and up on the bottle but the ER and their PED told me i could use it every 6 hours i just give them 5 ml (1tsp) you can use Tylenol with it you just have to space it like 2 hours apart from eachother so if you give her one wait two hours to give the other good luck
