    Hi all

    Lo has one tooth which appeared about a week ago without too much upset.
    However she is teething today and been fairly inconsolable - refusing feeds, only eating half her lunch and crying/whimpering for sil most of the day while I was at work (she was a bit fussy this morning but not inconsolable)
    She had one bottle this morning, half her lunch and half her dinner and only a little water.
    Is there anything I can do to make it easier for her , today she had calpol and teething gel.
    And is it normal for her head to be so hot while teething? I assume the refusing food is because she hurts, poor baby has finally fallen asleep on me!

    Returning the favour of a bump x

    It's awful isn't it when you don't know how to help. What teething gel are you using. I use anbesol which seems to help with the pain as it's liquid it hits the spot rather than a gel which just gets smeared about.

    Thanks for the bump! Am using calgel which lo loves the flavour of , I try and get her gums, she tries to lick it off! Tonight she has been permanently attached to the boob! If no different tomorrow I might try teething powders, see if that helps.

    Yep boob comforter here too! It must be so painful for them.

    Olivers had runny nappies now or 4 days his poor little bottom looks very sore bottom- bepanthen seem to have kept the nappy rash at bay as much as it can
