teething?

owen has been teething for what seems to be a couple weeks. he is 4 1/2 months and the pedi recommended tylenol at night for a week because owen wakes very often to nurse at night and is fussy. it seems the pain is getting much worse and he doesnt seem to like cold treatment. origel has been kind of a joke. tylenol is the only thing that helps settle him. he fights sleep and the pain makes it a bear to try and get him down. i feel so bad giving it to him i keep getting told not to feel bad but is there any other product or method to getting some relief? im a sahm. dh is working and going to school so its mostly just me and kiddo.

he use to be so happy and a breeze to take care of. now hes fussy and really hard to put to sleep. could this be a combo of other things? he seems to have night terrors every now and again due to the lack of sleep from the teething.
any advice or support is super helpful
we started solids about a week ago due to readiness signs.

Re: teething?

could be the solids but if nawing/ drooling at everything it is teeth i'm sure. We are getting molars and we have moods like this am that she woke up just screaming and like a tantrum til someone could hold her. Some juice and was fine. We try to use tylenol the least we can but only thing that helps besides sucking her fists.... I hope we can get her out of that. My older was a paci baby. Ours is 17months too. do you have something to naw on if he wants to help? yea orijel and all were a joke for my oldest.

Re: teething?

could be teething, could be part of the 4month sleep regression - could be a combination of both.

I would advise against Orajel, it actually toughens the gums and makes them tougher for the teeth coming through and could be contributing to some pain.

Liquid camillia worked for us back when the hyland's teething tablets were still on recall. And amber necklaces.

but I'd also google the 4month sleep regression, because you're likely experiencing teething PLUS that.

Re: teething?

we have a necklace but it doesnt seem to do much? ill try some tablets. sleep regression? oh boy! he was like this before we started solids. i just thought solids might help because they can be cold and help keep him satisfied a little longer..

Hylands teething tablets worked wonders for my girls.


Eta-I wonder if the solids are hurting his tummy? Maybe stop or try a different fruit/veggie?

Re: teething?

I would stop the solids and see what happens. It's a little early imo.
