Teething remedies

Would giving my 3 month old orajel and tylenol ruin her virgin gut? She's teething and screaming bloody murder and trying to stick her whole fist in her mouth. Though not as I type this, she's asleep currently. Obviously, they'd be the baby kinds. Teething rings and washrags aren't working anymore, and it's killing me to see her suffer so much. She's my first, and I can't stand seeing her scream. :'(

I like the nipple idea! I used to filled binkis with water and freeze them. Its such a small amount of water that they get in their mouth by the time it melts. Most of it just ends up on their shirt.

I would be weary of doing those, especially orajel. Have you tried frozeb breastmilk in a meshbag? What about highlands or an amber necklace?

Do not use orajel. There is stuff in it that is harmful for small children :( I know that sounds odd but it's not healthy. Personally my pedi freaked when she found out what is truly in it :/
Now instead use hylands teething tablets or Baltic amber teething necklaces :)
Good luck!

This or if you have a pacifier that has a cover for it put it in that and then freeze that :) I had someone tell me that but I didn't have a cover haha but another lady said use a medicine cup put milk in it and then put your pacifier in that and freeze it :)

I actually haven't given her anything yet, though I did try the water frozen in the binky trick. I think I'll try the breastmilk nipple one, too. A friend of mine actually told me that baby orajel doesn't work and to use the adult kind, but I'm wary to use orajel, period.

No orajel period. Try hylands they are all natural :)
