15w - Teething

Hi my DD is 15 weeks and shes starting to cut teeth . She loves it when i rub her gums when they are sore but... Shes severely tongue tied (working on getting it clipped) and doesnt really chew on anything but her burp cloth and fingers. What can i do to ease her pain some other then tylenol ? She finds bottle feeding painful as well.

Have had a few people tell me to get her to chew on something hard but shes still tiny and not many teethers fit in her mouth

any pointers?

Re: 15w - Teething

You might try teething tablets. They work really well for some babies. You could also try orejel but be careful not to use more than the recommended dose. Since she chews on her burp cloth you could try wetting and freezing it.

My son always like the "bright starts teethe on me" ring and the "bright starts chill and theethe theether tubes". Those were the only ones he would ever chew on. He also really liked to chew on link-a-dos. I don't know the actual name, that's what we call them. There the little plastic chain link thingy's. He chewed on those all the time!

Try pop cycles,just watch baby close.The ice will cool and numb her gums.We used popcycles on my GS who is 16 mos now.
