Teething remedies

My daughter just turned 1 last month and only has 2 bottom teeth but she’s teething like crazy because her top 4 teeth her coming in and I DONT want to give her any Tylenol just because so what should I do that can make her fever go down?

    If she has a fever, then tylenol is the way to go. I've heard that chamomile can help with teething pain. You can brew some chamomile and give her 1 tsp in a bottle.

    If she’s got a slight fever due to teething then try tepid baths and lots of fluids. If the fever gets high (over 100/101) then it’s likely not due to teething (although you know your child best!) and may be an infection. If the fever continues much more than a day or two have her checked by a doctor, it’s always possible that ear infections can occur with teething. This happened when my daughter broke her first teeth but (so far!) none of her remaining teeth.

    Also my doctors office suggest we do infants ibuprofen rather than acetaminophen when teething. Since teething causes some inflammation, the ibuprofen helps reduce it somewhat. But it’ll also help with the fever. Of course always go with what you’re comfortable with!!
