Teething or just Fussy?

Hello, Ladies. I've been off the grid for a little while, but I do have a topic. My little one has been showing all the signs of teething and has kicked up the discomfort this week. Additionally, Daylight Savings is throwing off everything. I've gotten a lot of advice about teething: teething rings, wet cold washcloths, tylenol (but not often). What has worked for your littles?

It feels like my daughter has been teething solid for the past 4 months! She now has 4 teeth, and I have to say, day time she is happy just chewing her way through any toy or teething ring she can find without looking like she is in any pain, but at night she keeps waking up in discomfort.
I've used teething gel and some Calpol (paracetemol solution) on occasions, but to be honest all she really wants is to nurse back to sleep. The other things are just me trying to get her to sleep a bit longer. Only 16 more teeth to go!

my son likes to chew on cold wash cloths...he actually doesn't like them frozen. it's too cold for him. i also use teething tablets with him. the homepathic kind. you can get them at babies r us, walmart, or target....
