We took my son for his 4 month appt and the doc said he is definatley teething. I am going crazy over here......he is just crying crying crying......and a light fever on and off, i feel so bad for him because he seems like he is in so much pain and there is nothing that soothes him.....does anyone know anything I can try???

you can also expect diahrea and diapor rashes

Maybe try getting some freezes good tastes and helps the gums

theres also new soothers out that you can freeze things in

origel is great but some mothers dont recomend it cause it numbs the toung id just use about a pea size if not less and just rub on the top and bottom gums

my youngest was about 4 months when he started teething but was 7 months before any came through

just remember paitence and if need be mommy time is great too

they make a teething gel that is homeopathic...has chamomile and relaxing herbs in it that help soothe them and calm the child down. Orajel and such numbers actually over time make the gums a little harder and prolong the teething! your son is young mine were 9 1/2 months when they got their first teeth i gave them frozen pancakes to gnaw on...they never got big pieces of it helped! teething toys, frozen wash the other moms said rub your fingers on his gums with a little pressure. just remember not too long and he'll have a mouth full!! you both will get through it!

aw you poor thing.

my girl is almost 7 months and shes bin teething since about 4months, im still waiting to see any yet tho. doesnt sound like shes as saw as your son tho. she jus grizzles non stop and is hard to get to sleep and doesnt sleep well. lately ive been giving her rusks which is really helping, shes continually chewing on one , the pressure helps, try rubbing your fingers on his gums and pushing them, sienna likes this and im thinking it might hurry them along. a couple of times ive given her pamol for it wen i jus cant get her to sleep. oh and i herd if you put some chewy toys in the fridge they like chewing them cold.

take some ice and crush it up, put it in a face cloth and secure it with an elastic, and let your little guy just suck/chew on it....the combination of ice and pressure really helped my little girl when she was teething. once the teeth actually cut through the gums it gets a lot easier for both of you...hang in there!
