Oh, I'm sorry, Taybah. I'd assumed you were in the US. Darn it all... I lived in South Africa for a while, but not sure what your equivalent to panadol is called. I didn't have children then either... I was more interested in the food. :-)

I'm glad to hear she's doing better. Just be aware the runny nose may come and go for a while as she's teething.

How is the little darling today?, sorry my Aussie language is different from everyones else's lol. Teething is always the blame at this age I feel. Like labour you forget about it till the next child and teething comes along.

teething caused my daughter to have a runny nose. this may be the case for you as well

Here's another Aussie opinion (I'm an American who emigrated to Australia)... if the runny nose is clear and there are no other symptoms, she's not sick. Babies that young usually present with other symptoms (most common being fever). It sounds a lot like teething. My one year old had a runny nose for ages while he was cutting his first teeth and then it just stopped once they'd broken through. Unfortunately for me, he was cross cutting, which was so NOT fun!

We have a product here called SM33 for teething. It's absolutely brilliant for teething and any mouth related issues. It's got an anesthetic in it that just numbs really well. I'm not sure if there's a US equivalent. As for the Baby Panadol Rebecca was talking about, it's the same as an infant formulation of Tylenol in the US. I do believe there's a Tylenol product in the states for babies, because some of my friends have used it. Worth checking out because that is such a lifesaver for so many things.

Good luck with the bub. I agree with Rebecca that you and your daughter have lovely names.

All the best with it, does she have a temp?, My youngest Emerald is 4 mnths old and she is going through this aswell, I just put a little bit of teething jel on her gums and she seems to get a bit better, I also let her chew on clean objects like those teething toys u can get especially those ones u place in the fridge so the are cold on their gums. I live in Australia and we call it Infant panadol.

yes, she can have panadol depending on her weight, I use teething gel aswell, if u are breastfeeding, they say that sooths their gums aswell.

how old is she, could be allergies.. but depending on her age there is always panadol, or bojela, u can go to a chemist and ask them, they helped me out alot when I went through this with my eldest,
