  • Bless her heart....I'd try some motrin and perhaps a tummy massage....when you can, target carries a product called gripe water that is wonderfully soothing on the tummy...

  • tylenol, tummy rub and if you got some teething gel to help ease the pain a bit.

  • If she is poking at her ears it may be an ear infection which is very painful. Call her doctor to get an appointment and he/she may prescribe an anitbiotic.

  • Call your doctor and ask what they think - it might be good to check if she has an ear infection. For painkillers, if she has a tummy ache, I'd suggest tylenol (it's easier on their tummy than ibuprofen). Would it help to rock her or sing her to sleep? My son is normally really good about sleeping on his own, but he's got both his molars and canines coming in so he's just way too wound up to sleep - I have to rock him to get him calm and sleepy and then I can put him down. Good luck to the little one!
