  • Unfortunately, you can't give early teethers much relief. Orajel isn't recommended until they are a certain age. Consult your doc about Infant Tylenol or Motrin.

  • I know its said that babies that young shouldn't have any teething medicine, but my son teethed early [still teething and no teeth] and his pedi said it was perfectly fine to give him teething tablets and small dose of tylenol.
    The oragel isn't recommended bc at that early of an age too much of the oragel can go into their throat.

  • Thanks for the advice I think I'm going to try the infant Motrin or Tylenol, I'm not sure but (and no offence) I think putting liquor on a babies passie is insane lol but I have heard the older ( again no offence) generation talk a lot about that lol
