My son is teething and hes draining me out i feel so tired. And whos having a bad time with there kids cause there of school. Ive been out everyday this week nothing seems to tirying him out. 2 boys 14 mth and 4 and half

Teething promblems.?
if you are in the UK,try Ashton and Parsons powders,after suffering with sleepless nights with my 3 children,i thought surely there's got to be something that helps,with my 4th child i used the powders,it soothes the toothache,stomach upset,fever etc,and worked brilliantly i'd recommend them to anyone.with my first 3 children bonjela was the main thing i used but all that does is numb the 13mth old son cut 6 teeth last week altogether,he was a bit mard than usual but he's now got 11 teeth altogether,and all have come through without any real trouble.hope this helps.good luck,and yes,cant wait for monday when they're back at school.had enough of the bickering aaaaaarrgh!!!!!!!!!!!
Reply:Tell me about it!!

I had no probs with my eldest son....a tooth just appeared out of nowhere sometimes, no nappy rash, no whinging....

with my youngest it was exactly the opposite...he kept me up most of the night, screamed from dawn till dusk....nappy rash all the time!1

Strange aint it!
Reply:Popsicles, ambesol, there are these cool water teethers that freeze and my daughter liked those. My mom rubbed brandy on my gums as a child she says. Yard work will tire any kid out ! Also try frozen fruit !
Reply:tell me about it my 2nd child has really good healthy big teeth!! the only thing that i could find was ambasol witch you can get from your local chemist or boots. its in a glass jar its about £3 usually they keep it behind the counter just ask for it. i hope you take my advice as this product is worth it. good luck

Need Help With Teething?

My 6 month old is teething I have tried tylenol, teething tablets and baby oragel what else can i do for him he has turned into a little bear. I have also tried cold rags, teethers,ice cubes,any help would be helpful thanks

Need Help With Teething?
This is just something they have to go through. Maya was a terrible teether. She still is. Her 2 year molars are coming in now and she will come in our room at 3am crying saying "my teeth mommy". It breaks my heart.

Also, Tylenol is a very powerful drug to a 6 month old. It isn't like us popping a couple of Tylenol. If it isn't killing the pain, then talk to your doctor to make sure you are giving enough or switch to Motrin which may be better since it is an antiinflammatory.
Reply:it mite help if u put i little bit of rum or which ever u choose on the bottem gums
Reply:I asked the same question last night about my two and a half month old...sounds like you have tried everything...but did you try just rubbing his gums?...good luck to you!!
Reply:My son liked ice pops (unopened).
Reply:MMMM, well they have these little food net chewer things at Babies r us. You put ice, veggies, and fruit in them and it prevents the seeds and skins from coming off. You could try one of those and put frozen grapes in it.
Reply:I found that children's Motrin work better on teething for my babies. That and my massage their gums with my finger
Reply:you can rub the panadol or nurofen on the child's gums to relieve the pain also you can burn some lavender oil in the child's room this helps i did it with my son also give a carrot to break the skin plus he has something to chew on or a rusks stick your choice good luck
Reply:I also gave my son blueberry waffles to chew on. It tastes good and it soothes the gums and it gets soft. My son hated teething rings and baby oragel. The teething tablets worked well on him too but you already said they weren't working. I hope this helps. best wishes.
Reply:Babies like to chew on something firm and cold when they are teething. Have you tried the teethers that you can refrigerate? Try a combo of the cold teethers, tylenol and orajel. Be sure not to go over the recommended amounts for each medication daily. Good luck and hang in there! : )
Reply:I use Gentle Naturals homeopathic teething drops they work wonders and I have gone through 2 bottles since he was born you can get then at target or walgreens.I hope that they work for you
Reply:Try giving the baby tiny, tiny slivers of ice. The ice is so tiny that it melts almost as soon as it hits the gums, but babies love it.

Of course, you have to make sure that it's small and thin.
Reply:Your little one sounds similar to my son, who is now 13 months old. He started his teething at 5 1/2 mos and was just miserable through it all. Some little ones take it harder then others. The only thing that comforted my son was tylenol prior to bedtime and his pacifier. He didnt want to have anything to do with teethers and such which made it hard. We even had a hard time putting our finger in his mouth to massage his gums for him. One thing that he did and still enjoys as his molars are coming in is chewing on a toothbrush. Crazy I know! We now know a battery operated toothbrush for him that has a detachable head that is a massager and it's been great for him as his molars are coming in.

I know that this is a very difficult time for you and your little one. Just remain patient. Offer lots of loves and hugs and cuddles. A break will come and you will forget all about this time..until the next time:-) Good Luck and hang in there.

4 month old teething symptoms? Dr. said no.?

Dr. said he's not teething, but he is rubbing ears and side of face hard. No ear infection yet they won't tell me that he may be feeling his teeth under the gums begin to hurt. Isn't the rubbing of ears and side of face a sign of teething as well?

4 month old teething symptoms? Dr. said no.?
I would say he is teething. With my first 2 children every time I even attempted to suggest that anything was from teething I was blown off. I am on my 3rd baby and we have a different doctor now. We went to his 4 month check up and it was the doctor that pointed out that he was teething when I had been blowing it all off because of my experience with the other 2. I told the new doctor about what had happened with the other 2 children when they were babies and she said that many doctors don't just want to blame stuff on teething just in case something else is going that needs to be looked at. Some babies are very sensitive to the whole teething process while others aren't. Some of the symptoms of teething are also the symptoms of colds and infections and other childhood aliments. Many doctors want to look every thing else just in case it is something else.

I also feel that lots of things that babies do can't be scientifically tested and from the science point of view if it can't be proven with solid results and evidence, then it isn't true. However, every mother from any generation will be able to tell you what babies do when they teeth, when they go through growth spurts, when they do the things they do. Like babies like rattles. This isn't anything new to anyone. Humans have known this for generations and centuries. It is one of those things that have been passed down from generation to generation for a long time. Well the same holds true for teething. Any great grandma out there will be able to tell you when the baby is teething, even when the doctors say no.

My first son got his first tooth at 3 1/2 months. At his 2month check up I told the doctor that I thought he was starting to teeth and I could see the little tooth right under the gums. The doctor looked in his mouth and said that no he wasn't teething and that he was too young still. He told me that about a month before a tooth comes in he will slobber more and really it shouldn't be that bothersome to my son but it was too early and not to worry about it yet, he might be starting by the 4 month check up but not now. Well a month and half later my son had his first tooth and a week after that he had his 2nd tooth.

Doctors know many things, but they don't know everything. They aren't right 100% of the time. If that was true, there wouldn't be as many lawsuits as there are. You are mom and you know your baby better then anyone else. Trust your instincts
Reply:He's teething. Doctors know a lot, but not everything. My son started teething at 4 months, even though no teeth showed up until he was 7 months. But those suckers start to hurt early on. If they're really bugging him, try giving a very small amount of infant Tylenol to take the edge off the pain. It worked for my baby.
Reply:I've never heard of ear-rubbing as a sign of teething.

A baby of four months old could be teething, but its also entirely possible he won't get any teeth for months. (My daughter had no teeth until around her first birthday.) Babies generally get the two bottom/front teeth first and then the two top/front teeth. It seems to me rubbing the side of his face wouldn't seen to be connected with getting those first two or four teeth.

I'm wondering if he has some ear problem that may not yet be an infection. Congestion can cause ear discomfort. Also, is there any chance the skin on his face and ear could be slightly irritated (maybe by a fabric he's been near) and causing him enough discomfort to call his attention to it?
Reply:He is teething. If you do not feel comfortable giving him Tylenol then you can use baby orajel. He may not like the taste but it does help. Doctors don't always know what they are talking about, believe I know. I almost always ask for a second opinion if I feel there is more to it.
Reply:My sister used frozen waffles to ease the pain, her kids LOVED them! If a Doc has examined your son and found no ear infection or anything else wrong, try it. Cut the Eggo into 1/4 sized pieces, keep them frozen and see if it helps. Kids go through phases on thier own time, some sooner, some later. He'll just knaw on it, it couldn't hurt!
Reply:he's teething, all 3 of my kids started early and all had teeth by 5 months.
Reply:It could be anything but my son used to pull his ears %26amp; his face would start to go red when he was getting teeth. My son was around 5 months when he got his first tooth so it could well be. If he is in discomfort try these tablets they are the best thing for teething - HYLANDS Teething Relief - Purchased from the chemist. Good luck and if it doesn't get any better then take him to the chemist and ask them what they think, they can usually tell if it's anything to serious.
Reply:My son did this a lot! It was always the same ear and everything! The doctor told me not to worry about it because he never had anything wrong. It could be that he found his ear like mine did! He played with that thing all day long and I swore he had an infection or a problem but it never happened. Sometimes they find something new and just play with it constantly. As long as he doesn't like hes in any pain and is doing just fine, i would say just let it go.
Reply:Dr's always think of teething as "a tooth will be popping through any day now." But teething is a process and a very long and painful one at that. I would bet his teeth are shifting around, moving into position for when the first ones start to emerge.

So even if he doesn't get any teeth for a couple months, don't think you were wrong.

Teething and cut on upper gum?

my son has two teeth coming in on the bottom they are not fully out but the tips are there. this morning while looking at my sons mouth i saw what looks like a cut on his top gums.

my question is, is he teething on the top also or is the bottom teeth sharp enough to cut his gums.

he is 8 months old

Teething and cut on upper gum?
They usually get the front bottom 2 and front top 2 around the same time so he may be cutting all 4 at the same time. He may be biting down because his bottom teeth are hurting and the sharp points are scratching the top...
Reply:My daughter is 8 1/2 months old and around 7 1/2 months she got her first 2 teeth, i didnt noticed a cut on her top ones at all, BUT, just about a week or 2 ago she got her third one, top left, so it might be a third tooth. Can you see any white at all on the top? Sounds to me like its another tooth. But im not a professional or anything.

Teething it possible?

I have a 3 month old daughter and i was wondering if it is normal for her to be teething already. i know they won't come through for a while i was just wondering if it was even possible at that age and she has all the symptoms. All answers will be greatly appriciated!

Teething it possible?
yep eyp yep baby started at 3 months also..but it was 3 more months till she got a tooth...
Reply:yep its normal - my son started teething about the same age - stock up on baby oral jel.
Reply:Very possible! Some babies are BORN with teeth, or start teething right away and get teeth days or weeks later.

If she has the signs, she probably is.
Reply:Yes, get ready for months of drooling :-) My kid really liked the teething rings you could freeze, I think it felt good on his gums. There is some organic homopathic teething medication that you can get in an organic grocery store if you are concerned about the chemicals in baby oraljel. My sister used it on her little one, and it seemed to help just as much as the chemical stuff.
Reply:yea, along wid the rest of the responses, its normal. and true, i knew a lady, who's child was born wid like teeth already. its odd but nothing to be worried bout.
Reply:my son started teething that early...everyone started calling him X-Files...(the tooth is out there)yeah, I know it's kinda gay...:)
Reply:yes, it is possible for you baby to be teething right now sometime baby's are born with all or some of their teeth and they're pulled right out of the mouth. don't worrier to much about it give her 5 to 6 months and you'll see them breaking through the gums
Reply:no absolute in this world. consult a doctor if you are not certain. Teething normally will have symptons such as fever - ask the doc about the signs
Reply:glad someone else asked this, I have a 3 month old and i thunk she may be teething too, she is really cranky, not sleeping well, drooling HEAPS and shoving everything she can in her gob - then cries once its in there like it is causing her pain. Good luck with it, doesnt look like this stage is going to be much fun!
Reply:My son popped his first tooth at three months. Now at 8 months he has 5 teeth. Just let her chew on CLEAN teethers. I really didn't find anything that worked for my son, but he is just like me, hard to please.


Teething Symptoms????

My son is 11 months old and he has vomitted 4 times since morning. He had a fever yesterday for sometime, but today he does not have a fever. He is also coughing and when he cough's it seems his chest is full of cold, is this a sign of teething??

Teething Symptoms????
Sounds more like a cold or respiratory problem. You should consult a doctor if a child is vomiting.
Reply:sounds more like a cold or the flu take him to the doctors
Reply:I think he has some kind of flu virus. The only thing that usually happens when teething is a low grade fever and a lot of slobbering.
Reply:ok my mom, a mother of 4 children just said it is a sign! Try to give him some baby aspirin and some catnip tea to break the fever! Try some chamomile tea also just make sure it's room temperature you don't want him to throw it up! start looking or a teething ring ir try putting the tea as a soft ice pop form! or make some ice tea cubes! just keep holding him because he's going through alot. make sure he gets plenty of hugs and hold him!
Reply:Probably a chest cold. Take him to the doctor!
Reply:you don't need this board. You need a pediatrician. Please take him in. My daughter never vomited, had diahrea when teething. She did have a rattling in her chest when she had croup! Take him in tomorrow.
