My sister has an 8 month old baby that is teething. She got a mesh teething bag and puts frozen strawberries in it and lets her chew on it. The mesh keeps the baby from eating the strawberry, but allows cold comfort for the sore gums. It also gives them something hard to chew on that will help the teeth to come through. Good luck!
Thankyou both so much will give all of that a go! Anything is worth a try esp since she is in so much pain!
Giving her something hard like a hard teething ring to chew on should help to break those teeth through the gums. Like limonada said, the refrigerated teething rings are good for helping to sooth the gums and the baby orajel is good as well. I do find that the orajel doesn't work for very long though. Sometimes when the teething is REALLY bad and baby is REALLY fussy a partial (half to 3/4) dose of tylenol can help. Especially right before bedtime, it will help ease the pain so baby can relax and fall asleep. Though I don't recommend doing that all the time.
Awwww.....poor little girl :-(
Those teethers that you can stick in the fridge are always great. And I must admit....when things get really bad, I'm all about the baby Orajel ;-)
I found these things called teething tablets at a natural food store and used them with my first son (haven't with my second son yet, because he's only JUST started teething...he's 3.5 months old). Anyway, I'm not entirely convinced that they do anything other than distract the baby from the pain - but sometimes that's all it takes :-)
