Baby Teething

    So my first child is getting her first tooth! I was just thinking what other people do to help their children feel relief when they're getting teeth. So, what do you all do to help your babies deal with the discomfort of growing teeth?

      Take several very clean washcloths and soak it in weak chamomile tea... wring well and freeze. It helps to fold them twice into baby hand size squares. Hand to baby as needed smile

    Totally agree with Melissa! That is exactly what a dentist told me to do when my first was little. Also when it's really bad I put some baby orajel on their gums. Especially right before bed so they can sleep in peace.

    My oldest is 12 years old and I have total of four kids, with my youngest 15 months, I have always used Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets. You should be able to find them at like Wal-Mart, K-mart, Walgreen's or other places like that. They are a bit pricey but I love them and my kids have no problem taking them. you can also find them on line...good luck

    Thanks for the ideas! So far so good. My baby's not too grumpy and I haven't had to do much. But it's good to know how I can help her. smile

    We used baby bottle nipples with water in them frozen.
