2 month old teething

OK. I know its crazy but my 2 month old is teething. He is chewing and drooling on everything and his bottom gums are white. All the med. over the counter say 4 month and older what can I do for him? Also I am breastfeeding and he is hurting me any way to stop the pain.

  • i read that pure vanilla extract helps for teething. just put some on a q-tip and rub it on his gums.

  • My 2 month old is teething also. So I don't think your crazy. I asked my doctor and she said baby orajel is fine and also infant tylenol. You should always ask your doctor though. That would be your best bet.

  • Im not sure about what to do for him teething except give him those frozen rings and things to chew on. Or they have a rattle thingy that vibrates when they bite on it. (My daughter still loves hers) But for you, even when my daughter wasn't teething breastfeeding was very painful for me, except when i used the shield I needed in the beginning of breastfeeding. It makes it much less painful i think. I know babysrus has them for sure Advent brand I think. But you just pop it right on and let your baby eat this should help atleast a little bit.

  • I don't think you're crazy. I use the Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets, or the Disney Naturals Teething drops. They both seem to help my DS with teething pain quite a bit! As for your breasts, the cabbage the pp mentioned has helped me as well! I aslso still use the Pure-Lan the doctor told us about when I started nursing. I hope this helps you!
