I wouldn't give orajel it can numb the back of the throat and cause choking because baby can't feel anything

orejel is said to be bad for babies, but the teething tablets work pretty well for mine.

aww bless its horrible, francesca never really seemed to be botherd by her front 4 but the last 2 that came through have been awful ive been given so much advice like rubbing wiskey on her gums or giving her a wooden peg to chew on or some paracetamol ( dnt know how to spell it) i just try and keep her mind from it but i suppose its easier said than done with a 4month old x

there are these teething tablets you can give her that work for pain i havent used them yet but ive hurd nothing but good from them i am thinking of getting some the next time my son pops out another tooth but i dont think orajel would hurt your daughter any but use the teething tablets if your not comfortable with the jel that and frozen teething rings or frozen wash clothes or you could get this mesh bag and you could put crushed ice in it cuz the points on the ice will help cut the gums and make it easier for her teeth to go threw plus you can use the mesh bag for anything it has a handle on it for her to hold on her own you can put anything that will fit into it and give it to her just a few ideas for you
