Who rubs whiskey on their lo's gums when teething?
I am coming to the ends of my tether I am finding it really difficult with little one keeping I have tried Calpol nerofen teething granules and bonjella .... everything nothing works he had to sleep downstairs in the living room in his car seat last night because he wouldn't stop crying for two solid hours between midnight and 2... Please help xxx
Try Anbesol. Would do the same job as Whisky but designed for teething!. Really effective stuff-much better than granules etc. We used that and Calpol. If the paracetamol one doesnt last very long try the Ibruprofen Calpol instead.
Teething is horrible Unfortunately it's one of those things that time is really the only thing that can make it go away. Whiskey is a seriously bad idea that no health professionals would advise you to do anymore.
You should be able to get anbesol from the pharmacy for free under minor ailments, at least you can at mine and that's been the most effective pain relief other than calpol. Please don't use whiskey. xx
ETA Have you tried Sophie the giraffe as well, it worked wonders :-)
Wouldn't be okay with the whisky either. I read about some kind of tea concoction.
Basically, you make decaf tea and add some fruit juice to it. Then you dip a wash rag in it, and freeze the rag, and the baby bites on it. I guess you could probably use pedialite too (as I think you can freeze it). Then the rag would taste great to the LO, and it would be more likely to be effective!
