Teething?

My 5 month old is drooling and chewing on everything in sight. Is there anyway other than Tylenol that I can help her be more comfortable?

  • Use a freeze pop,in the wrapper and numb the gums or let baby chew on it and it will numb the gums and baby will fall asleep. Perfectly safe. It works better then baby oragel..... That only works for 5 minutes! This works the best and your baby will be pain free. Try it and message me,let me know what u think.

  • i loved teething tablets when my kids where teething with a nice frozen washrag. the teething tablets can be dissolved in water first if you are worried about choiking however they dissolve so fast i dont think you would have to worry.

  • i loved the tablets too but the brand that i had got recalled because someone gave their baby one and the baby never woke up so i will never give my son teething tablets again. if it can happen with that kind i think it can happen with all of them. cold carrots work wonders (NOT BABY CARROTS) but round the edge of the carrot and rinse it off and you should be good :D

  • Teething tablets! Sounds scarey!! Try freeze pop method,no fear of it harming your child.
