  • ITS NORMAL FOR THEN TO BE FUSSY FIGHT THERE SLEEP ITS VERY PAINFUL FOR THEN. WHEN THERE TEETHING THERE GONNA CHEW ON EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING. THE DOCTORS ARE JUST GONNA TELL YOU TO GIVE HER A LITTLE BIT OF TYNELOL (STORE BRAND ) IT WONT HURT HER PUT A WASH CLOTH IN THE FREEZER FOR HER TO CHEW ON. THE ONLY THING YOU CAN REALLY DO IS COMFORT HER.

  • I disagree with the PP do not every FREEZE anything and give it to your child to chew on. This can cause severe frostbite in a matter of minutes. Put it in the fridge to get it cold but do not freeze it. It is normal to be fussy when teething. Also you can try the teething tablets or orajel if you feel comfortable with that. No doctor's appointment should be needed as teeth will cut at their own pace.

  • Try a damp washcloth out of the fridge. And yes, teething can make them fussy. spit up, even lose bowels. Imagine trying to sleep with a wee sharp thing digging through your gums.

  • Spit up was at it's worst when my dd was teething. It is all the extra mucus that they are swallowing. I just stocked up on bibs to avoid changing her clothes all day long. Hang in there!
