I have soon to be 6 mo. old who is teething. She has been waking up nightly for the past two week EVERY hour. I have tried Orajel (but am a little scared of it numbing too much) and it really doesn't help for long. The pedi told me to use Tylonol, which I have used at night a few time only giving 1/2 dose every 3-4 hours when I nurse her to stretch it out.....didn't help. We both need some sleep....I don't get more than 3-4 hours of interupted sleep a night...and I know she is not sleeping well either.
I just need to know if giving enough Benadryl (like less than 1 ml) at night, maybe only once has had a negative effect on anyone's infants. I know my mom gave it to me daily from 2 months on because of colic and her pedi told her to (this was in the late 70's)...then she moved to Paragoric, which you can't even get anymore, when I started teething. I turned out fine, LOL. But today...it is like you can't even mention Benadryl before the kid is 4 years old. I am sure it is because people where abusing it....but I don't plan on doing that. However, we could sure use some sleep :(

No no no! Humphries is natural and will relieve his pain as well as help sleep...

Next question overall
Has anyone ever gone through a foot surgery of any kind?
