Is this teething?
I am a FTM and am clueless about what to look for :blush:, does this sound like teething? My dd is almost 5 months and has been chomping on everything (including me). She has also been more fussy than usual and I can feel a hard lump on the bottom middle or her gums. As far as drooling she has been a faucet from about 2 months. If she is teething, what can I do to help her discomfort? Thanks

A great Mama recommended Hyland's teething tablets to us. (ds is only 3mo and I kept insisting he wasn't teething, but other moms kept telling me it made sense with all the changes and perhaps he's just "early")

ANYway, I read up on them and showed dh and he went to the pharmacy and asked her about them and the pharmacist agreed to try them

They homeopathic and dissolve VERY quickly in all the excess saliva. This a.m. he just would not settle so dh gave him two more. Within 30-45sec he settled and in 2min he was OUT.

The mama who gave me the tip is also an extended bf'er and found out recently that nursing lets off a trigger in baby's brain that is like a pain reliever. So you can try that too if you are bf.

Those teething tablets are a godsend! When stacie was really young we would give her a teething tablet and let her suck on our finger to keep it in since she had no control on how to let it disolve lol But now we pop 2 or 3 in her mouth when she is teething and within 20 minutes she is 100% different. Stacie is getting molars in so I have been giving her some tylenol too but those teething tablets really do work and I have had the same bottle for the entire time she has been taking them, maybe a year now.

And I dont know if you heard but do not use orajel on little babies because it can cause them to choke, it can numb the throat. So thats why I tried the tablets.

Thanks for the help, I can't believe my baby is already teething. I am breast feeding, but she has started biting me while comfort nursing so I am trying to find a way to comfort her and save my nipples. I will try the teething tablets tomorrow. Thanks

On the Hyland's tablets note...I use the gel instead as I feel strange about giving my 4 month old anything that is "solid". The gel works in the wink of an eye! He's been pre-teething for over 2 months and is just now starting to teeth heavily. The faucet anaolgy is perfect!!:giggle:

I recommend humphry's teething tablets my pharmacist ordered them for me no prescription necessary and u just dissolve 3 tablets in teaspoonful of water juice formula whatever and let them drink it from a bottle. I think it works better then hylands and my dd hates the gel
