once they start, the teeth keep on coming, so could still be sore gums, or has she got used to the fuss she had made when she did cut them and is craving those extra cuddles. calpol night is good if she is in pain, or just offer her a drink of water when she wakes. she'll catch on that it sleep time.

Teeth come in at different places and at different speeds. Don't worry about timing - it's completely unpredictable. For discomfort, try Hyland's teething pills (or gel). You can get them just about anywhere now. Hyland's also has a formula called Calms Forte, to help kids settle down so they can sleep better. They are homeopathic remedies which means they have no side effects and all ingredients are completely safe and non-toxic. Gripe water can also help with teething sometimes, though is meant primarily for gas or upset stomach.

My daughter started getting her teeth through late too, similar age to yours. Every child is different so they could all come really quickly or slowly. My daughter is 3 yeras old now & just got her last 2yr old molar through. Bub is probably unsettled at night because of the teething, it will pass :)

I try not to use tylenol for teething I found that teething tablets work the best and the use natural stuff not drugs. The rest don't take to long after the first. deffanently get teething tablets.

The only teething remedy that worked on my son were teething tablets. They dissolve really quick and he would instantly fall asleep. That's how quick they relieved his fussiness from teething.

my youngest is 3. but as soon as those bottom ones come in the rest should follow within months or sooner. every child is different. the teeth making its way thru the gums can be uncomfortable for your daughter. invest in a nice rubbery texture teether for her to chew n nibble on.. also what i found helpful was a damp clean cloth for her to bite on. giving her some tylenol for pain if necessary will help comfort her so she can sleep and you can too:)
