Hello Fellow Moms!
My 5 and a half month old just got his first tooth and he has been in a lot of pain. I have tried the frozen wash cloths, massaging his gums, natural gels, ice cubes, etc. but the only thing that calms him down is baby tylenol. I really don't like the idea of giving my son pain killers so often (it seems this last week I have given him at least one or two doses a day). But he is screaming like he is being tortured and I don't know what else to do. I have a natural tincture that I could try but it is basically like giving him liquor and I am not real excited about that solution either. Does anyone have any natural remedies that actually work? How long until he is through this painful teething stage? Is anyone else trying to avoid giving tylenol and oral gels?
