with my first I didn't have to deal with the teething thing because I was on bedrest and my husbands grandmother kept her.

I don't know what to do! she will not stop crying. I gave her some tylenol and tried some baby orajel teething rings, frozen teething rings and she's in the bath right now with her sister and daddy is giving me a break because I have dealt with it ALL DAY and its killing me to hear her cry and not know what to do. NOTHING is calming her down.. if shes not asleep or breastfeeding shes crying. I don't know what to do.. anything else I can try?

Chamomile essential oil rubbed directly on the gums with help.

she has two already and the only difference I noticed was she slept a lot more and was a little bit fussy but NOTHING like this. I thought teething was going to be a piece of cake.. boy was I wrong!!

Does she use a pacifier.  When my son was teething and he cried like that, I would freeze his pacifier and when it would lose the coldness, I had another pacifier in the freezer getting cold.  I just kept switching them back and forth.  I hope this helps.  I also used Tylenol, I never could get anything to work except the pacifiers. 

In His service,

Brenda
