Post subject: Teething Nightmare!!!!
Hiya,

My little boy is 5 months old and I am having a terrible time with his teething Sad

He is sleeping ok during the night, so lucky there! but during the day from the time he gets up spends most of the day crying!!!! he won't nap, constant crying.....

I have been giving him calpol. teething gels/powders. Calpol works for a short time, but the gels etc do nothing.....

Has anyone got any tips? I am slowly going CRAZY!!!! I think he may be cutting 2 teeth at the same time? as I can see the teeth sockets at the front on his gums and they are very warm!!!!

xxxx

Poor you I'm not looking forward to starting that stage again Sad Apart from regular ibruprofen and paracetamol how about a teething ring? Massaging his gums with teething gel? That always seemed to work for my boy. Hope he hurries up and cuts those teeth soon x

we used ashton and parsons powders, but sophia didnt really suffer much at all.

My friend swears by Anbesol. But sounds like you have tried all that. Horrible i know but i guess you just have to ride it out.

I'd def recommend anmbesol also, you have to ask for it at the chemist.

The other thing that works for some is icepops (depending how old you lo is).
