  • Loads of babies get fussy with teething and more than likely, she will have another soon.

    Baltic amber teething necklace for her to wear is good, homeopathic teething tablets(like Hylands), frozen breastmilk cube in a mesh feeder, wet frozen washcloth to chew on.

  • Well, with my 3 boys.. everyone of them were different. My oldest's teeth came in rather early, but they were mainly fussy, had diarrhea, sometimes ran a fever... Try baby orajel, it works wonders.. maybe even some ibuprofen for the pain.

  • Orajel is not good for small kids.

    And Ibuprofen should be a last resort.
