Default Babies and how they turn you soft.

I have a 9 month old and His first tooth is coming in. He's usually the happiest baby ever. He's been crying for two days solid. This sucks. I tell everyone to suck it up usually but I'd pay anything to make him stop hurting. I bet it only gets worse.

You might spend a small fortune on different teething rings, but it’s worth it if you find one he likes.

^^^bet your teeth don't hurt though!...we bought one of the amber teething necklaces and it seemed to work. Never did get bad enough to try the tablets and she didn't care for the rings but apparently she is pretty tough because she was rarely in enough pain to be fussy non stop. or maybe the necklace worked who knows

We used the baby orajel and it worked well. Also had some pacifiers that were mesh you could put cold fruit in. My son liked those.

Keep any teeters they donít like too. My daughter didnít care for a couple a few months ago but now she likes them because she can hold them better. Thankfully hasnít been too bad for us but definitely fussier at times. Mom says docs donít agree with Oragel now so I gave up on that one. I take whiskey though, hate seeing her upset even a little.

We used the baby oragel for a while because our son would not use a teething ring. Heck, he quit the pacifier at 5 months so he never really chewed on stuff. He just drooled alot though, lol

Just fyi the teething tablets have been recalled a few times for causing problems with babies. One of the active ingredients is belladonna and apparently they don't have a very consistent dosing of it which has caused seizures.

Edit: I looked it up to see if I could find you a link and apparently the ones I was referring to have been discontinued

X2 for the pacifiers with the mesh compartment you can put frozen fruit/popsicle in as well as the amber necklaces, just make sure the necklace has the safety break away latch so it can't choke them and don't leave them on at night

Guys thanks for all the tips! I bought one of everything at the store. I don't know what worked but I think we are on the downward slope. Is it like this for every tooth? How many dang teeth so you have? 28 isn't it?

We tried teething rings and the like, ours didn't like them. He liked chewing on a cold damp wash cloth the best.

My 2 year old loves her "ice" it's one of those teething rings things that is frozen. She gets a mosquito bite-ice. Bumps her head-ice... So save them they are multi purpose...

On that note, get in a routine where daddy puts them to bed. I get home late every day in the fall and now we are running into a problem when my wife has to feed the 2wk old and it's time for the 2 year old to go to bed. She acts just like her daddy from what I'm told. She screamed bloody murder last night for 20 minutes because daddies hugs aren't like mommies.

See before the new one got here, I could put her to bed and she would just want me to scratch her back.... But now it's momma or screammmmmmmmmmmm

Last night I was at my breaking point and just closed her door. Shoot you would have thought she got bit a dog. Momma walked in here and she said "daddy mean, I want a momma hug" and went right to sleep

Next time you are at the doctor, also ask if/what dose they recommend of Motrin etc. for your specific child. We were able to add a little Motrin or Tylenol to a bottle of milk which would help with the tooth pain. This was especially helpful at night when the little one was in pain and wouldn't go to sleep.

I have a 8m old little boy. He has his bottom two. It didn't seem that rough on him when they came in. Wet wash cloths seemed to handle it for him. I hope the rest of his are that easy on him.

It was not like that with every tooth for our two kids. Mostly just the front teeth. For us, it was a few days, maybe a week at most, of the tough times. Gets better relatively quick. Heck, kid #2 cut 4 teeth at once. But now she is so cute!

My son hated every teething ring. Only thing that helped was me holding him at night on the couch singing or reading to him until he fell asleep. Even then he still whinpered a bit but he toughed it out until he was asleep. This parts the worst but it'll get better.

Tylenol worked best for my girls. My aunt is a nurse practitioner and this is what she suggested. Longer lasting relief for the kids as the topical gels tends to rub off at different rates depending on the amount of saliva your child might make. I'm no doctor by any means, so please exercise caution with this advice

Yeah, it seems like the more they get the less t bothers them. Now my son nearly has all his teeth and the only eah i can tell its bothering him is if hes not chewing food as much. Otherwise he's eating as much as i am lol

Freeze some damp baby wash clothes. My 9 month old loves them every time she starts getting a new tooth. Damp not wet, it should not be frozen to where it's rock hard.
