  • Try HyLands teething tablets. Orajel/Ambesol and the like are not good for them as they can get in their throats and cause them to not breath well also it makes their gums harder and teething more painful once it wears off after like a second. LOL Try a frozen washcloth for her to chew on as well.

  • Lol, I should try that! It kind of gives me the shivers!!! Have you ever tried the food net things? Younput frozen fruit in it, is she too young?

  • My daughter got her first tooth at 4 months. She also held her head right away. She was always early with everything! Everyone was amazed at what she could do at such a young age. She read at 4. Now she's 7. She's a head taller than her friends. I'm worried about her though. She already has body odor. She wears deodorant. I'm sure she will develop very early. Every time she calls me from the bathroom I'm petrified that I will go in there and I'll find her period. Good luck!!

  • I never used them because they didn't have them when my son was born. LOL I don't know if she is too young, but, her gut might not need the juice of whatever you put in it just yet. She still has like 6 months to go for that. Haha It might be ok though.

  • The nurse at my peds office said that the only thing that really relieves the pain of teething is counterpressure on the gum, so the cold washcloth for baby to chew on, or a finger in their mouth to bite on can help, My daughter loved to bite on anything metal. I have a big key chain that is metal and she would love to chew on that- cold metal plus it's hard so it probably felt good.
