My son has been dribbling and putting his fist in his mouth now for about 2 weeks. Last night he wouldn’t settle at all until I gave him some panadol. It then only took another hour to get him off to sleep.
This morning there is a nice white tooth just under the gum waiting to cut through.
My last son teethed from 3 months on and loved bonjella but I think we relied on it too much.
I’m looking for other ideas other than amber teething necklaces.

  • I had a teething ring you could freeze, gave lots of icy poles, teething gel and sometimes panadol.

  • Lots of cuddles and Panadol! Also, bonjella, and a facewasher that is cold, they can suck on Good luck, it is a hard time x

  • Have you tried a teething ring you can freeze or chill? I had these for my littlies .I don’t know whether they make these now but they worked a treat. They say for the amber necklaces to be really effective you would have to use a necklace with a lot more amber on it that what they manufacture. A huge amount in fact according to scientists!

  • Teething ring panadol and bonjella. Think to yourself how much it hurts when you have a tooth ache,

  • Cold teething toys are great as are rusks that they can just chomp down on to relieve some of the pressure. Good luck.

  • I found putting teething rings in the freezer were really good. The cold helped to numb the area.

  • A wet face washer and put it in the freezer and give it to bubbly to chew on
