My son is cutting teeth now hes got 5 and 2 more comming in at the same time and boy does he get fussy....I figured out that teething rings dont work for him. and if you put oralgel on a babys gums it will make it harder for the teeth to come threw but i just give my pain reliver for babys and that always seems to work but every child is different so i dunno if that would help for you but it did for me.

Thank you for your response and for your advice on the baby pain reliever and the teething rings only work a little bit for her when they have been frozen other than that they are no good.

I so know what you are going through. My daughter just cut her frist 4 molars all at the same time. Tylonal and motrin help alot and I also give my daughter Homeopathic teething drops and they work wonders as well. other then that just cuddle and love on her. If she like to watch cartoons or anything put on her favorite thing to watch and sit there with her and cuddle. Thats what I did with my daughter, we sat and watched Dora *she loves that show*

Nothing much you can really do. Give her something soft to chew on, that seems to help. She might get a temperature, then give her some Tylenol. It'll be a couple days, then she'll be happy go lucky again. There are homeopathic teething pills you can buy. Just ask at the local pharmacy. They are tiny, dissolve quickly and seemed to help ours when it got really bad. The pills helped with the pain and the little ones were able to sleep. Which is important for them so they won't get overly irritated.
