Teething? ERMAGHERD BEEDS! 17 kids; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 4099 posts

DD was up all of last night screaming in pain. She won't nurse for more than a few seconds... SO is insisting she's teething but I feel like this is too much.. It's WAY more dramatic than she was for her last two teeth

How old is she? It's very possible. Sounds like my daughter when the teething is very bad, she really screams herself hoarse + won't drink or eat anything. Nothing but a spoon of baby medicine will help. She's 9 months now + still not one tooth out yet though we can see loads in her gums. I heard the canines + back teeth hurt more to cut but this is my 1st child so I'm not too sure how true that is. My cousins DS was 9 months when he cut his eye teeth + he got a throat + chest infection from it.

This is heartbreaking. I feel so bad for her. She's screaming how she does when she gets scared or hurt. she's 7 and half months... She got her first two front teeth and had diarrhea and a runny nose and was clingy but nothing like this. :( my poor baby

Maybe her ears are hurting? My daughter gets ear pain when she's teething, those horrible teeth cause everything when they're coming up! :( I hate tooth pain myself so can't imagine what it's like for poor babies cutting all theirs :( Abbey's been teething since 6 weeks, no joke but they're really taking their time. Do you give your daughter any teething meds? Nothing works on mine except baby calpol but I only give it to her once in a while. It really helps her when she's in pain + she will eat + drink a little while after taking some.

She seems to finally be feeling a little better, she's playing in her jumperoo. I have her Tylenol for the second time this afternoon and a bath and fed her from a bottle so she wouldn't have to work as hard and that seems to have done the trick. She won't even take a teething ring, so I'm having SO pick up some ambesol to rub on her gums. Thank goodness her brother and sister are here, seeing them seems to be the only thing distracting her enough to keep her calm
