  • If she was tired she'd sleep. Just let her fuss. One day won't hurt. If her teeth are bothering her then give her some oragel or teething tablets. They really help! Good luck!

  • Try rubbing some vanillia extract on the area that the tooth coming in is hurting . Also use teething tablets ! the baby orajel numbs the baby's throat when swallowed from the saliva . Also you can try giving her a warm bath with the baby lavender soap to relax her . Good Luck !!

  • A new product just on the market is designed to help your baby sleep better and longer because it calms the baby (like swaddling) when the baby is too big or old for swaddling - its called the magic sleepsuit. www.magicsleepsuit.com
