any single remedy for teething AND gas?
 
preferably natural if possible :blush: i've seen and heard of chamomile recommended for gas and i noticed that our teething tablets have camomilia (sp?) so i'm wondering if there is anything out there that claims it will help with both. dd is still so little i can't really tell what's bothering her and i hate giving gas drops and teething tablets at the same time (just seems like a lot for her little tummy :() anybody know?

What about an amber and hazelwood necklace? Hazelwood isn't specifically for gas, but for neutralizing acidity, which may be the cause of gas.

I recommend earplugs and a bottle of wine.

Oh wait, you mean for the baby! Sorry!:giggle:

I feel your pain, those teething and gas days are nooo fun. Poor little mite. I second the gripe water. Check for an alcohol-free brand, some have alcohol in them. Lots of natural ones out there, I can't remember the name of the one we used for DD. It was a lifesaver though! Didn't have to use it often but when we did use it she felt better instantly!

:thumbsup: you are so right I used to send my dh in the middle of the night to the local 24 hour grocery store that carries it! My son would instanly burp & fart like a grown man:yuck: and that would let efveryone feel better. Oh and you definatley want the all natural one's.... I forgot as well what the name was off the one we used but I know it was manufactured here in Arizona where I live and it was great!! Good luck :goodvibes:

thanks for the suggestions, i'm going to take a look around and see what i can find (we live in a small town so i might have to do some searching, but hopefully someone somewhere carries it)

does anyone have any specific brands they recommend?

dd is only 5 months and not sitting independently just yet...the idea of a necklace still makes me a little nervous :nervous:

I did/doing gripe water with my LO and it seems to help her a great deal. I am getting some amber soon and trying that too.
