You can get some teething tablets. I can't remember the brand name, but I'm pretty sure you can buy them somewhere like Walmart. They worked well for just about everyone I've ever talked to that has used them. Our pediatricina was actually the one that reccomended we use them for our son. Another thing that works for us is giving my son frozen foods. He likes frozen fruits and veggies. I use cooked carrots, and then freeze them, and he really likes them that way. If you give your baby frozen stuff just be careful that it's not something she will choke on.

Please don't laugh...I gave my son frozen peas. they were hard, they were sweet, they were a vegetable, it was a finger food that he enjoyed and they helped him feel better. They were small enough that he could not choke on them. He would not eat peas that were cooked until he was 11 or 12 -- he could not believe people did not eat them frozen. Hope this helps you!

they have orajel for babies. . . you could try that. i used that for my son when he was teething (as young as 4 months old) and it hasn't hurt him any. another thing you may want to try, is slice up an apple and let your daughter chew on that. that helped as well for my son as well as alot of my friend's kids.
