I have a 14months old Boy who does not sleep through the night at all, he wakes for bottle at 12pm and then again at 4am, he has done this since his teeth started to come in!!! He even gets to the point were some nights he won't go back to sleep, he is a very unsettled sleeper!!! See i had no problems with my older daughter, she loves her sleep! Any suggestions??? Need sleep

I know about this Lise. This is why I said a pea sized amount. And I don't think it has happened that often or it wouldn't still be on the shelves. As long as parents are cautious and really only use a teeny tiny bit, there shouldn't be any problems, that's just my opinion though. Their mouths are so small you don't need anymore than that anyways.

I'm not trying to criticize anyone elses post but just a bit of info. Orajel is very dangerous to give babies. Even in small amounts it can numb a babies ability to swallow and basically cause them to drown or choke on there own saliva. There have been multiple cases of this happening. I'm actually surprised it hasn't been taken off the market. I would just stick to tylenol for teething.

My 3rd child was 15 months before he started sleeping through the night. He woke every 2 hours to eat, and I couldn't get him to stop. Once he turned 1 and was eating more solids thru the day and not drinking as much I started giving him just water at night hoping it would stop him from wanting to eat so much, but all that really did was make him mad. When he was 15 months my parents took us all to Disney World. After 3 days of non-stop walking thru the parks and getting up every 2 hours I was completely exhausted. On the third night I got up with him a couple times and on the third time I just looked over at him (his crib was in our room) and calmly said "lay down, it isn't time to get up yet" jokingly, and he did! After that he started sleeping thru the night! If only I would have known sooner that that was all it took. LOL

Thanks Bonnie,
Although some night i know it's his teeth and considering all 4 back theeth are popping out he would be, i think he is in a routine of just getting up!!! it's tiring for him and us, but i;ll give the Tylenol a go!! Thanks again

Honestly when teething is the culprit it is difficult to get them to settle on their own until it is said and done with. At least this is most of the experience I have had.

You can try things like a bit of Tylenol if it seems like he is in a lot of pain and Baby Orajel (just a pea sized amount on the gums).
