My 4 month old had her first tooth pop through yesterday, I thought she would finally have some relief but she's still very fussy, I have tried teethers and I even tried freezing her binkeys to see if that would help, any advice.

We use Hyland's teething tablets, they work great for us...but I have heard they're a hit or miss.

My pedi said not to use the orajel and I've heard the teething tablets are being proven to do more harm then good, I'm not sure where I heard it but it was a good little while ago that I heard it. Freeze the teethers, frozen wet rag, Tylenol.

Technically you are supposed to wait but it won't hurt her. My son has been using it since two months

hyland's teething tablets! love them!! they were re-called in 2010 due to the inconsistency of the amount of bella-donna in each tablet. they have been reformulated and are considered safe and back on the market now. (we used them with my ODS who was born in dec 2010.)

Please do NOT use orajel. It actually hardens the gums and makes it harder for the tooth to come through, putting them in pain for longer.



I highly suggest a Baltic amber necklace.
