    Grace is teething and often gets whingy. She woke after her nap before and was screaming and didn't stop screaming for half an hour. Now I have heard her scream many times but this was like she was possessed and she was clearly in a lot of pain. I gave her something to chew on but she didn't want it and I put a bit of bonjela on her gums but she was still screaming so much to the point where I started to cry, I felt so bad knowing she was in pain and there was nothing I could do. I'm going to buy some teething crystals when I get chance but is there anything else I can do in the meantime? I know I shouldn't but I feel like a terrible mum :(

    Fairly new to this whole 'mum' thing myself. But I have been around a couple of other peoples babies. One of my cousins was going through something quiet similar when she was a baby. Screaming so much her poor Mum felt helpless. Turned out she was going through a little growth spurt unbeknowns to her mum and just needed a little more food than usual. So the doc told her mum to prepare maybe an extra bottle and that should do the trick. He was right! :D

    Hope this might help hun.

    I recommend putting something cold for her her to chew on,it will numb the gums.Thats the only thing that pops into my mind...
    Hope she feels better,the poor thing! :hugs:
