i used motrin with my 18 month old daughter when she was really cutting teeth. now shes getting molars and i dont think they are bothering her as much. the frozen wet towels and teething rings are great too. however i do not recommend the baby orajel because it is so numbing that it may numb the back of her mouth or throat causing her to choke on her own siliva (which there seems to be a lot more of when using this product) I even used the baby orajel on myself because id already bought and opened it before i was told to not use it and it numbed me so bad i was drooling! i dont even want to imagine what COULD happen (not saying it will) to a tiny baby that doesnt know what exactly to do with all that siliva.

Baby Orajel PM- worked great- Motrin worked better than Tylenol ...also - place a wet washcloth in the freezer...or get one of those Sassy Mesh Feeders- PLace a piece of a frozen banana or something else mussy and cold- teaches them how to eat as well as eases their pain....

Wet a clean baby washcloth with cool water and let her chew on that for a while. I got the idea from when my daughters were in the bathtub and they try to suck the rags (eww!)....so gave her a clean one (out of the tub) and she was content!

We would peel a potato and let him chew on it. He loved it. Also those freezer teething rings worked great!

My son is 7 mos old and already has 4 teeth and is in the process of cutting 4 more teeth! I feel your pain!! I give my little guy infant motrin. He now sees the dropper for the meds and will reach for it knowing that it will stop the pain. Also he likes frozen teething rings. He will not hold them, but will suck and chew on them until he his chattering from the cold. He also likes it when you just massage his gums with your finger. Just have to watch for the teeth that are already in so you don't get bit.

Teething tablets Saved my life!! My son cut teeth so early and we would give him some of those, theres no drugs in them so it dosesnt make them tired or anything. just from the releaf of pain they may finally sleep. Good luck! we also let him chew on crushed ice in those mesh fruit holder things.

My son is 10 months old and is getting his 4th tooth in 3 weeks. Is there anything else I can give him apart from panadol and bonjela?

Give her a piece of cold cabbage to chew on. My son used to love it. Also baby calm, if you put a little in water, let it dissolve then dip your finger in it and rub it on her gums that will help her sleep too. Good luck

0.8 ml of infant tylenol does the trick! I am a nurse and that is the recommended dosage to give. give no more than 4-5 doses in 24 hours. my sympathies are with you...my 3 month old is going through it too.
