Owen’s bottom middle two teeth are showing their faint whites just beneath the gums and we’ve been hearing about it the past few nights as he wakes up crying about an hour after bedtime. The tears persist, minus some relief from ice-sucking, until we cave and give him infant Tylenol. Will was relatively unbothered by the process, but unless we’re misdiagnosing some simple unwillingness to sleep, Owen needs relief if we hope to get any sleep. I’m thinking of trying some Hyland’s Teething tablets but I’m always hesitant to try any products (even when they’re homeopathic and “natural”) out on a baby.
So, tell me your favorite teething remedy – especially for nighttime (just gumming on teethers and fingers and ice cubes seems to suffice during the daylight hours).
