Teething

My dd is 11 months old and was a dream when her first two teeth came in...but the last few days the top two are coming through and she has been a terror. I love her to death but holy cow. I had to have dh take her out for a couple of hours so I could destress.

Anyway has anyone else had children react differently to different sts of teeth coming through? And what did you do to soothe them?
