My daughter has most all of her teeth.. She is now getting her eye teeth and I have never seen her like this before. She doesn't want to play or do anything. She justscreams and clings to me all day! She has had a high fever and is not sleeping well. I took her to the doctor thinking something was seriously wrong (maybe a terrible virus or something?), but only got one answer... "She's getting her Eye Teeth!". I feel like have tried almost everything. Any advice??

Lol i was raised as them being eye teeth too. There the pointy canie teeth. (sp) my daughter is 2 and just got all 4 of hers but she didn't have any problems. No fever, no fussing nothing but she has a really high pain tolerance. She has never balled for any of her teeth and when she falls and hits her head she gets right back up so... maybe its just her.

My daughter just got hers a few weeks ago and the only thing that seemed to help was doing mortin then tyonel and switch them every 4 hrs.
My daughter got 4 molars and all 4 of her I teeth at the same time. We are now good untill her 2 year molars come.
The I teeth are the ones right next to the first set of molars.

Motrin and Tylenol for pain, baby Oragel for on the spot pain relief. let her chew on a big frozen carrot (too hard to bite of bits and it numbs the gums- just be sure to cut off the very narrow end). Distraction- walk in the park, a new movie, trip to grammas, walk around the store...etc. And lots of love and patience. ((hugs)) Mama- it won't take too long for them to come all the way through. If she continues to have a fever or it's high that is not generally a sign of teething, sounds like a virus. Keep pushing liquids as long as she has a fever, regardless of what the cause is. High fevers can lead to dehydration if they don't keep drinking. Good luck Mama!

My son is getting his in also... I use Hylands Teething Tablets(you can find thematWal Martby the childrens vitamins)and they usually work really good. They are a homepathic kinda thing. If he gets really cranky that's when I break out the Motrin and Tylenol. Good luck and hope she gets to feeling better :D

My son, who's 10 months, has one and is getting the other now. He has had a hard time as well. I'm not sure why they're so much more painful, but he cries alot. I keep using vanilla extract and baby Orajel to numb him, and he's been chewing on a pacifier alot, which we didn't give him before. I don't think there's any way to help her other than trying to numb it and spending lots of cuddle time with her.
