Looking for any stories and/or tips on teething:

I am assuming some of us with our darling september babies are going through the joy of teething. Feeling so sad for them, yet at the same time pulling out some of my hair! lol. My son who turned 5 months old on the 5th of FEB. Just cut the two bottom teeth this week, I think I was pretty lucky hearing some other stories. He had one sleepless night and a few cranky days. I didnt even realize those teeth were so close to coming, I saw them one day and they cut the next. Both on the same day too, my tough little cookie.♥ Just want to hear on any tips and stories of mothers going through the same. and good luck to all of us! this is just the start.

my Daughter turned 5 months on feb. 13th and she has been getting her teeth in for about two weeks now and she isnt bad except getting her to go back to bed when she wakes up the once. but i have heard a wet frozen washcloth....she loves that. The ora-gel doesn't seem to work, just gives her a funny face :) but hope this is useful!!

ok not sure where you are but in australia we have 2 natural remedies that seem to help my son...hyland's which are dissolvable pills and brauer which is liquid. i also give baby panadol/tylenol when necessary. we use rusk sticks and teething rings. oh and a wet wash cloth works great too. my son is getting up at the crack of dawn and doesn't sleep well all hard to see him suffer.

Homeopathics work great for babies. I gave my daughter Chamomilla when she would start to get fussy from the teething pains and she would usually feel better in about a half hour or so. You can also get homeopathic teething tablets and gels. Rescue remedy works well to calm and sooth them. I used these things and my daughter never got fussy for long because I would notice the early signs that her teeth were bothering her and she cut her teeth with no problems. She showed lots of other signs (diarrhea, drooling, runny nose, red cheeks, diaper rash) but she would sleep 10-13 hours straight at night so they didn't seem to bother her too much! And of course.. they like something to chew on. My MIL bought a massaging teether that my daughter loves, when she bites down it vibrates.

I did talk to my son's pediatrician about this last week because I know that he's starting to teethe even though there is still nothing breaking through the skin- he reccomended that during the day, try to distract him from the pain by playing or giving him a cold teething ring. He said that at night time when he's ready to bed if he's really fussy, to give him some tylenol first, and if it's really bad, or the tylenol doesn't help, to use Baby Ora-gel.

I haven't had to give him anything yet, but I do have it all on hand just in case ;)

I hope this helps.
