Hylands teething tablets worked wonders for me when my daughter was teething. I have a almost 2 week old and will be using then when the time comes. They are all natural and for infants.

We're not allowed to use orajel at childcare centers in Minnesota because it can numb the throat and cause choking.

For a baby that young, ask the pharmacist about dosage and have them help you find the right medication. The first time I gave my son infant tylenol, dosage was only 1.25, I had to get a different syringe from the pharmacy in order to dose properly. Good luck!

I just recently read what the FDA says about orajel. Just watch her for lips, face, and nailbeds turning grey. That's an allergic reaction that could be fatal.

there is an infant orajel. I have some in my diaper bag...there is a picture of a baby on mine....I just noticed today that mine is teething as well. She isn't liking the teething rings either quite yet. I noticed she is sleeping more as well, which makes sense. That's a coping method for pain. Orajel and/or Infant tylenol. 2.5ml is I think the recommended dose for their age. It was the first line on the syringe.

If she's that miserable I would ignore the doctor and give her pain meds. A little acetaminophen isn't going to hurt her.

There is orajel you can put on her gums to numb them for a bit. Do you have any cold teething rings? DD is right behind your at 2 1/2 month n there are 2 waiting in the fridge for the day. Another option is freezing a wet washcloth. Let her suck on that. I'm shocked doc didn't recommend infant Tylenol.

You could try giving her some acetaminophen and see if it helps. Is she eating and sleeping okay? If not its also possible she has an ear infection and those hurt a ton causing very crabby babies.
