Teething

Recommended Posts

Well, I figured I might as well start a thread, seeing how there is barely anything else going on in here.  We all know teething is probably one of the hardest things on our little ones.... So, maybe we could share some teething remedies???

I have a 6 month old and he has been teething for 3 months.. still has not broke through, it has been aweful watching him go through this!! I have tried a tylenol advil combination, Cold facecloths, freezies, teething rings, and alot more... The only thing I havent tried, because im a little nervous about it is Camilla... It has a herb Belladona in it, which is actually very dangerous... It can be lethal...

Sad to say he'll keep going through it...all the things your trying are exactly what you should do... It's kinda like menstrual cramps and acne- something painful you just have to get through... other than what I saw you wrote I also use the gogurt tubes - freeze them and the kiddies love em - I've seen frozen peaches somewhere but they're hard to hold...I don't have babies of my own but I've worked in daycares and been a nanny so that means I've had about 10 teething at all times :)

Thanks for starting this thread!  Mine got his two front teeth at 3 months, 3 weeks.  Crazy, right?  It has been fast and furious since then.  We have been lucky in that he has had a pretty easy go of it, but there have definitely been nights he wakes up crying or is generally fussy during the day.

 

There are 2 products I recommend that worked better for my son than others.  All kids are different but maybe they are worth a try:

 

 

http://www.amazon.com/Waldorf-Maple-Teether-Natural-Teething/dp/B000VLR178

 

This makes a great teether as well and it reaches to the back of the mouth which is awesome for when the back teeth start coming in:

Those look like neat products starchild thanks! I've seen a three month old boy who was the size of a nine month old who's mother gave him baby food and the next thing I knew he had teeth comming in. I thought that was wild but I guess not.

 

I remember seeing somewhere jewelry that mothers can wear their babies can safely teeth on that I thought was very stylish - I'm being lazy but I'm sure if you google it, it will come up. Also I learned somewhere to squeeze a paci nipple underwater to let it fill up and freeze it... It dosn't last long so I do a bunch but it's soothing

I've seen the jewelry too.  Seems cool but I never got any.  I love the paci tip, thanks :)

All kids are totally different but I see how it could drive you nuts!  My cousin is 11 months and just got 2 front teeth overnight, but has been teething for months too.  They pop up when they want to I guess.

No it isn't nuts.  My daughter is 14 months, she has 8 teeth and those came in with no issue.  She is teething once again and have had fevers as high as 105.  We do the tylenol/advil combination, the cold rag, frozen teethers, frozen eggo waffles and yes we do the Camilla tea.  I usually make a pot of tea, take her medicine syringe, use 1.875ml and a cup of 4 oz water and gives it to her.  Of course, I have adjusted this because of her age and size, when she was smaller I would use less tea with the same amount of water.  It kept her calm.  Also, if you have a Whole Foods they have a teething medicine, drops, that works wonders!

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
