Hey Everyone, my 5 month old daughter has been showing signs of teething for almost a month. she's been really drooling, has a chin rash from all the saliva, a diaper rash, REALLY red cheeks, up all night, and really irritable. she's not napping well either. shes basically got every sympton in the book and she's miserable. both of my sons got their first teeth at 4 and 5 months so I keep expecting hers to pop through, but it's not. her symptoms lasted about 10 days, went away for a week, and are now back in full force. I'm giving her cold face cloths and teething rings, orajel, and tylenol at night when it's the worst. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had kids with really difficult teething..my boys never had symptoms. How long should I expect these symptoms? shouldn't that tooth come through soon?
