My daughter is just over 5months. And we are out of the country visiting her daddies family. I believe she has started teething, she is overly fussy, runny nose and cough and constantly sticking her fingers in her mouth. Is there anything I can give her to ease this process I hate seeing her hurting!

See if there is a pharmacy near by... If there is go and see if the have teething tablets in my opinion they work way better than tylenol... its perfectly safe also because the second they touch the baby's mouth it disolves or you can put it in a teaspoon of water and disolve it before hand

if you can't do that put the pacifier in the freezer for a little bit and then give it to baby like its a teether

We found that the thing that eased his teething best was teething powder, the gels didn't do much at all.

Other things you can do are:

~Give your little one chunks of fruit out the fridge to chew on, things like apple and pear etc.
~Wet a wash cloth and put it in the fridge for a while and let them chew on that
~Buy teething rings (some can be put in the fridge as well).

try carrots... the big ones... not the baby ones. or apple slices. Or they have these amazing mesh things... i don't remember what they are called but i found it at walgreens (probably doesn't help where you are) but you put fruit, or something that has enough consistency that it won't drain out, and give it to her. My mom always gave me an ice cube in a washcloth with a rubberband to hold the ice cube in. She said it worked wonders.Make sure that the washcloth is somewhat rough so that the texture feels good on her gums. The baby washcloths won't work cause they are way too soft. But yes... the TEETHING TABLETS are amazing and the best part about it is that they are homeopathic. Orajel never worked for my little one. Teething bicuits are good as well.. Good luck!

There are many things that you can do to help your daughter with teething. One is to get some baby oragel, second purchase some teething biscuits in the baby food section of any grocery store, third you can purchase a teething toy which you can place in the refrigator for a few minutes and then give to her this will help soothe the pain and help with teething.
