  • Your baby is too young. You can try things like taking the baby's clothes off. Putting the baby in water that is between cool and warm, not too cool. Using cool compresses. Put a cool wet cloth in a baggie in the freezer for an hour or so to freeze and then remove from the bag and let the baby suck or chew on.

  • Call a nurse line, you can either call your local hospital for the number, or find one online. If you can give your baby Tylenol, they'll let you know how much you can give.

  • if your dd takes a paci you can put it in the freezer for a few hours and let her have it, it will help numb her gums up from the cold. also get some teething tablets will help.
