my daughter is also one yr old, and she does have one small tooth, do you think the older she becomes it will be more painful?

We are working on our 7th tooth (turned 1 on Dec.13). Our best friend is baby orajel. Best used at night right before bed. I've also heard that frozen wash cloths work wonders for daytime relief.

my son turned 1 on the 7th and he had 4 teeth at that time that he didn't have too much trouble with. He liked to chew on rubber toys...he really liked to chew on the rubber padding we put around our coffee table. At his one month check up the doctor told us it looked like 3 more teeth were about to pop through and it has been a little miserable the last few days with these teeth plus he caught a cold so its a double wammy. This time chewing on toys doesn't seem to help. A hard spout sippy cup is what he is preferring to chew on at the moment and we are also using ibprofen at night before bedtime as well. I can tell his poor gums are really swollen. Hopefully they pop out soon!

my son will be 1 on the 26th of dec. he started teething at 3months old and one finally came through when he was 4mnths then a week later another and then nothing for the next 3mnths. tylenol helps alot also teething tablets help and can be used as needed so they are great in between the times tylenol can be given. my son had problems sleeping still does when a tooth is about to come through and he has had 2 some time 3 come in at a time. and his have came in just all over he got the 2 bottom ones then the eye teeth i thinks thats what they are called then the top front one and another bottom one so that was 3 at once then a molar now i think another molar, that 4th fronth bottom one and top tooth towards that back are coming in. so he has been in alot of pain. alot of sleepless night but mostly he wants either me or my husband to comfort him. he didnt like the teething rings frozen but he did like ice but we put it in a mesh feeding bag that they sell in the baby section of target walmart and babies r us. its safe then a piece of ice alone. hopefully that gives you a few ideas. my son also likes water bottles to chew on we just watch him closely to make sure he doesnt walk with it pull the lable off or mess with the cap so far no problems with that,

My daughter just turned a yr on the 17th and she only has 2 teeth. She doesn't seem to be getting anymore as of right now. So it's weird honestly.

My three year old son did not get any teeth until he was 14 or 15 months old. The dentist and doctor both said it just means that he will be late loosing his baby teeth. So instead of Kindergarten, First grade before he looses his first tooth.

My baby will be 1 this Friday and cut his 7th tooth last night and it looks like his 8th might come through tonight.

He is a bad teether, so I keep up with the Panadol and Bonjella, which I rub into the sore gum 3 hourly through his bad teething times.

My daughter got 2 at 7 months & 2 at 8 months with high fevers, couldn't sleep, just miserable! So I got a teething necklace which I was a bit sceptical about but bought it anyway. She was 1 on Saturday and noticed 4 teeth just broken through the skin at the same time and I didn't even know so yes the necklace definately works, I would recommend to anyone. Good Luck

Babies are really different for when they get teeth. My cousin's son only had 2 by the time he was one. He didn't have extra trouble teething, either, as far as I know.
The things I did for my son that worked best were:
-wet cold washcloths for chewing
-rub real vanilla on his gums
-teething toys made of rubber or wood
-when he was tired and cranky, I held him close and wouldn't let him chew on anything for a while, it just hurt him so much he couldn't sleep. Probably that won't work with a 1yearold.

My little one has 8 teeth and will be 1 next week. During her really bad teething times, we would give her teething rings (I've also heard they have rods that reach the back of the mouth for when their molars come in). We would also supervise her eating ice (which I know we are not supposed to do, but Alex did just fine with it). At night before bedtime, I would give her Infant Motrin, not Tylenol. The Motrin helped more with the swelling than Tylenol did. Alex also liked cold washcloths to chew on. Orajel doesnt help for very long, but you can apply some to a finger toothbrush and massage the gums with the orajel; you could even massage the gums without the oragel; That was one of our bedtime rituals. I would "brush" her teeth when I gave her a bath or right after and she loved it. Then I would give her the medicine and it helped ease her pain.

Hope it helps, some. Good Luck!

My son will be one in two weeks and only has one tooth. My daughter who is 5 years old didnt get any teeth in until 12 months which I think was better because she never complained or anything. They just all started popping up over the weeks after 12 months. I didnt use any remedies because she never complained....but I would say tylenol, cold clothes or the teething toys you can put in the freezer, or baby oragel. Honestly they are only temporary relief and dont really last very long.

My son will be a year tomorrowand still has NO teeth!! Hopefully cold washclothes, cold teething rings and tylenol will get us through! His brother was on the late side (not htis late) and teehed very easily. I wonder if I'll be as lucky this time!
