Teething help

Any ideas on soothing the gums for teething? Baby has 2 teeth coming out slowly and it’s causing her not to eat food. FYI she doesn’t like the cold teethers.

    Just give her a teether that hasn’t been in fridge. You can also try the teether rice rusks. Baby orajel helps to numb it

    Oh also they make some teethers that aren’t meant to be cold. They vibrate when they bite them 😄. My son didn’t like the cold teethers at first either but now he loves them

    I have only used it 2-3 times. In the beginning it didn’t seem to do anything but this last time he was really fussy and it seemed to help pretty quick.

    @kaitlyn Okay great I’ll try it. I know it doesn’t have the ingredients like orajel which is good. I got this today and wanted to try it out. I was going to ask about it and u beat me to it lol thanks!!

    Ok.., just hear me out....I know it sounds crazy but I was told a long time ago by someone much more experienced then myself, to hang a hard boiled egg inside one of your babies socks above their crib or doorway to their room. It helps with crying due to teething. I don’t know the science behind it, I just know I believe it works for us. Am I the only one that’s ever heard of this??? EDIT- ok so it’s not hard boiled, it’s a raw egg.

    The pediatrician I had with my first child suggested I use children’s Benadryl. He said to just rub the liquid on her gums and it would not only numb her gums but would soften her gums so the teeth would come through easier. We used a q-tip and just dipped it in and rubbed it on her gums. Worked wonders. She got four teeth through at once!

    Frozen yogurt pops helped my son a lot. He didn’t like the teethers either. Or you could use breast milk or baby food as well

    @jessie I used the Nuby teething gel on my two kids works great and if you’re still breastfeeding you can do breast milk frozen pops
