I think that my lil man is teething. Hes such a good baby very rarely cries..almost never cranky sleeps through the night. everything. But here lately hes been getting cranky for no reason and it kinda feels like he has a hard spot on his gums as tho a tooth is really about to start coming through soon..so thats what makes me think that hes starting to teethe..Anyways we have gave him teething rings and rub on his gums stuff like that does anyone have any other ideas of things that I can do for him...it makes me so sad to see him so cranky lol thanks

My little guy has been teeth for 3 months but no teeth have popped through yet. He is also a very happy baby and rarely cries. However when I know his teeth are really bothering him I give him homeopathic teething drops. They really work and it is safe to use better then medicated gels. It is called Camilia by Boiron. Also teething rings, teething soothers, wet washclothes, and he likes room tempreture baby food as well.

Definitely Hylands teething tablets, they are all natural and they work wonders with our son who is almost 6 months old and is in the process of getting his two bottom teeth in. We sometimes use Tylenol drops but generally as a last resort. Chilled teething rings are good, but everyone has told us NOT to use the baby Orajel. It numbs their gums but it also numbs part of their throat which interferes with their gag reflex so they can choke on their saliva. Good luck girl!

my daughter was the same. she got her 1st toth through at 5months 3weeks (6months now). i just used teething rings,let her chew on rusks, used teething powder or gel....there isnt much you can do really....but as soon as her tooth cut through her gum she settled back down. i think once it came thrugh it was a big relife for her.

oh yea forgot to say....good tip is to put an apple in the fridge then cut large slices and hold them in the mouth for them to chew.... it tastes nice for them and its hard and cold.... i did this the day before i noticed her tooth came through. i think that may have been what made it come through the gum

Hi! My 6 month old just got two bottom teeth popping out a a week ago. He was fine for a few days, but now he is having trouble sleeping. I think you're doing all the right things with teething rings, etc. I know Tylenol drops can help if you think he needs it to make him more comfortable. My baby is like yours - always happy and smiling, and I feel so bad for him - his little two teeth are razor sharp too! I knew his teeth were coming any minute when I felt his bottom gum - it was hard, and it looked like two little white calluses on the bottom. He got teeth the next day. Good luck!
