  • I feel for you, my daughter had the same problem. Her doctor suggested we use tylenol/motrin, even though I made it clear that I did not feel comfortable giving her them every night. However, when she wasn't sleeping at all, I caved. We gave her either tylenol or motrin every night before bed. And sometimes as the doctor suggested, we gave her tylenol, then motrin on the same night if she woke up in the middle of the night. Again, not my first choice, but my little girl had 5 teeth coming in all at the same time. Good luck!

  • baby oragel. My dd loves frozen fruit. There are these things...sorry I don't know their name. They are like nets that you can put food and frozen food in. The baby can knaw on it and it last a long time. I couldn't have survived multiple teeth without them.

  • Go to the drug stores and ask around until you find something called Gentine Violet. Sorry, the spelling looks wrong but you should be able to pronounce it right. It is in a small bottle. Take a Q-tip and rub this on her gums. It numbs the gums and is safe for baby. Warning: The stuff is purple and will stain everything it comes in contact with including her. But it does fade away in a few days on her skin and gums. It works great and an old remedy for teething babies. It was used on my grandmother clean up through my kids.

  • My daughter got 10 teeth in, in the matter of two months. I know you said other that teething tablets but... I did 2 to 3 teething tables, warm milk and I would also give her .05 of children s Tylenol after about 30 of giving her the teething tablets... her doctor even said rubbing a dab of vinegar on her gums would help but i never had to do that
