Teething- What should I do?


I think Omar is teething (hands in mouth, red cheeks, etc.)

I massage his gums with baby tooth brush & massager. What should I do more? Do I need to use a gel or sth? He's not interested in a teether yet (I have the cold & normal ones)

It's not bad. But I dont really know what to expect. He's acting normally, just the drooling & red cheeks. What does the gel do? is it only soothing?

Is there any specific brand?

I've tried most gels but found dentinox the best. We've found calpol / neurofen just wakes her up due to e numbers and I don't like using it too much.

This week we found ashton & parsons teethng powder - brilliant. calms her, soothes the cheeks and all natural ingridents.

My LO is suffering badly atm with this.

I've been using dentinox gel, and went out at 11pm at night to get Ashton & Parsons powder on Friday night - he was going crackers and nothing I was doing would calm him down. They seem to be helping now though

He has spent all morning chomping on some teething links I've bought him, he's obsessed

Chloe is teething, I can see 2 coming through right now.

She was really unsettled, lots of sleepless nights, screaming on and off, drooling everywhere, red cheeks, dhiarrea, nappy rash......not fun!!

We got her an Amber and Hazlewood teething necklace and it's fab :-) All the symptoms gone!!
Obviously you might not feel comfortable with the teething necklace but I would recomend them 100%
