My 3 1/2 month old has been teething for about a month. She is very drooly and likes to blow raspberries. I have tried everything from infant tylenol to baby orajel, etc. Any suggestions other than whiskey on what can help ease her pain so she can sleep at night?

I let both my children chew on their hands, beats having a dummy, they're so annoying. I'm quite lucky because neither of my children seemed too bothered about teathing, I think the most painful part for the child is when the teeth are pushing up through the gums. That only takes a couple of days and then the pain should start to go down. To be honost, I just let them get on with it and don't worry too much. Also, in my opinon, if you know that she's not hungry in the night and she starts crying, just let her cry it out, it might sound a bit mean and for the first couple of nights it might not be very nice but sometimes that's what ya gotta do. That worked for me and both my babies started sleeping right through the night (teething or not) when I stopped breastfeeding.

She doesn't like the teethers. She would rather breastfeed or eat her fingers.

My son is also 3 1/2 months and is teething. The best thing that I have found is Hyland's teething tablets. They are all natural and have a sleep aid. Sometimes, when he is in alot of pain, I also use the tylenol w/ it.

Hi there, have you tried bonjella? I found that really worked for my daughter. My son is 8 months old and already has 4 teath in but with him, we didn't use anything. We tried using the baby chew toys or what ever they're called, the ones that go in the fridge. Both babies liked those, the only problem is that the babies can't/don't hold them for very long and don't seem to know what to do with it but if you sit them on your lap and hold it for them they can suck/chew on it.

Hope that helps?

Eilidh..
