    Unfortunately you'll just have to suck it up and get through it. Sophia started about the same time and she still has no teeth.

    Hannah started about the same time, and cut her first at 6 months. She is now working on two Lon the top. I have found the amber necklace very helpful.

    mine's the same way. no teeth cutting through yet though... sigh...

    she does love to play with (and gnaw on) her burp cloths or blankets or stuff like that when you toss it in her lap. someone told me to get a wet washcloth that's been in the freezer and let her play with it so she can get the cold in her mouth. i hope it works, haven't tried it yet though...

    My little man started teething at the same time and then a month later (when he was 3.5 months old) his first tooth appeared closely followed by the second one next to it. We first felt the sharp point along the gum line and it took a while to emerge but he was better once it did.

    I would recommend teething gel and teething rings etc. It is so difficult, so I understand your pain. My baby would find it difficult to nap too and it was exhausting. Luckily he was okay during the night. It will get better though and it does sound like her teeth will break through soon. Best of luck x

    My first started dribbling/chewing/being cranky from about the same age but didn't cut his first tooth until he was 13 months old - yes 13 months!

    Just wait and see as it may be something completely different and not teeth at all :)

    I hope she settles for you soon x

    The thing with Owen was that he soon stopped moaning and was just a dribbly/chewy baby - then when the teeth started to appear they would just come overnight without any fuss at all!!

    My LO started around the same time and her first ones popped through just after 6 months. If she's having trouble sleeping try some infant tylenol just before bed.
    I was reading an article that they don't recommend those teething gels anymore because if they swallow it their throats could be numbed and they could choke. I only used them once and I couldn't get the gel on her gums right because she was too squirmy so I gave up and just use general pain relief (tylenol and ibuprofen) when she really needs it.

    we were recommended anbesol liquid, just a small amount on your fingertip rubbed on the gums and it worked a treat.

    As for the dribbling and rashes, slap on some Vaseline, my LO had a terrible rash and Vaseline was the only thing that got it cleared up, combined with Dribble Bibs, they are like little bandannas with a press stud fastener and a soft material that draw dribble away and stop the rubbing that causes the rash and also keeps the Vaseline off clothes.

    hope this helps.
