he was grumpy during teh cutting part but nothing to unbearable... but now the teeth are thru he is even worse... and I know its his gums... he is soother obsessd.. and is really attached to me Im exhausted! ALSO at night he doesn't really wake up crying but he has been tossing and turning unrelentling! so i know he isn't getting enough sleep at night but I don't what to do to help! I've given him some teething tablets and those helped before but not anymore... I just feel like im missing something :( I can't handle a screaming baby for another day... 3 months of teething to get the teeth to cut and I thought I was done but its worse now than it ever was :(

Hi. I know exactly what your going through my son is about to be one and he has 10 teeth. I use baby ambesol every 4 hours or so and motrin before bed and when he gets really cranky.If the tooth has broken through it definitly still hurts just apply the ambesol over the gums. Dont worry it will get better. I would be lost without the motrin.My dr said every four hours it really works good luck

hang in there we all went through it.i fel what you are going through,5years down the line i can never forget what my son went through and the pain of seeing the little one go down in discomfort.hang in there its just for a seasonl

he probably isn't far off getting another tooth, i found the teething tabs you mentioned helped my daughter, also any teething gel and as a natural remedy, try Infants Friend. and when he is really unsettled and in pain, reach for the panadol.

The rubber bone is a great idea. My son just needs to cut his 2nd molars or as i guess what they call the 2 year molars. He wasted no time at all with teething.

I have heard with teething is that even after they cut their whole mouth could still be sore from it. Maybe the other teeth are moving around under the gum's. You could try Humphry's teething tablets if you haven't already. My son really like's that stuff alot more then orajel lol. Try that and see if that helps and if not I will look into further for you.

We were told never to use ambesol, or oregel. becuase it numbs the neck muscles and is dangerous. However we did find a awesome teething tool, a vibrating toothbrush.



Like the spin brush type thing from crest. That sort of thing.



I do like using tylenol as well.



And if nothing else works, and this is going to sound totally wierd. Buy a rubber bone for a dog. It's great for chewing and you can chuck it in the dishwasher every day.



good luck.

He may just be cutting another set of teeth that you cannot see yet. it is really just one long ongoing process until they are all in. My son is just over two and finally finished all his teething around his second b-day. The eye teeth were BAD because they hurt him until they were all the way in, not just broken through.

My son is having the exact same problem. I give him motrin or tylenol, whichever, at night and during the day I use orajel and let him chew on a cold damp wash cloth. He loves it.

hello, i wanted to give u a cupl of tips that helped me....my son is going on 7 mos and during his teeth cuttng in, i wud give him a fruit popsicle to kinda soothe the throbbing. try using oatmeal in his milk when he goes to sleep at nite. believe me, it helps, and it helps them sleep through the nite bcus they have the oatmeal on his stomach. G/L :)
