Top teeth

How many had babies get top teeth before bottom?

My DDs top teeth look and feel like they are about to come threw. The area around it is white, It feels sharp and it hurt like hell when she was gumming at me today and she's been so fussy. She kept waking up last night screaming.
Any suggestions on how to calm her?

  • Teething tablets can help. Motrin is also good. The pain is what's agitating her.

  • motrin is the only thing that helps Liam. the teething tabs really seem to help some kids, but not here. motrin works better than tylenol because its anti inflamatory so her swollen gums wont be so painful. good luck and hang in there.

  • forgot to add that lim got bottom first, but the teeth can be close to coming thru and move back up in the gum, thats where alot of the pain comes from, they are up and down sometimes for months before popping thru.
