  • orajel is really bad so try to stay away from that.. talk to your doctor about tylenol before giving it to her..
    otherwise, a cold wash cloth or frozen pacifier help..

  • Rub the swollen gums with your finger and wait. The counter pressure of your finger actually relieves the pressure/pain of the moving teeth. Until they're fully through the gums she's going to be miserable.
