  • nope, I used the teething tablets. Helps with pain, disolves quickly, helps relax them and worked wonderful for both my kids

  • Nope. My son cut his first two teeth at 4 months, then nothing else for seven months. My daughter cut her first tooth at 11-12 months. Like with everything else, every kid is different.

    Baby Oragel Nighttime formula worked wonders for my house, and the baby tylenol to help relieve pain. Teething toys of all sorts. Neither one of my kids liked them the least bit cold though. Rubbing the gums where you think the tooth/teeth are coming in provides a counter pressure that babies like. Letting them chow down on your finger/knuckle worked well too, but be prepared to have slobbery hands.

    Good luck!

  • Nope! My youngest cut his first tooth at 4 months, I couldn't believe it. He's 17 months now and has almost all his teeth.
