HELP My 4 mo. old daughter is teething.

She's been fussy and fighting her sleep during the day. Maybe naps 10-15 minutes a couple of times a day. But, i can't complain about her not napping she has been great since she came home as far as sleeping at night. I have teethers (alot of them) but she get frustrated when either her or I try to hold them for her. ANY Suggesstions?

  • Teething rings worked really well for us, as did the teething gel IF it got really bad... Good luck!

  • It sounds like you have a normal 4 month old. At this point baby is just now realizing and seeing the world around them. It is normal for baby to be distracted during this time just wanting to look around. This may be your situation and not teething. Try going into a very quiet dark room to feed and for sleep.

  • I use hylands teething tablets, gripe water, and a little washcloth materialed stuffed animal I put in the freezer. My son also loves the teethers that vibrate. He gets frustrated with the cold teethers also:
