Calpol does not seem to touch it and I am preparing for the night ahead now.
It has been that bad.

Amblesol liquid and nurofen

Anbesol liquid always works for us. On particularly bad days ibruprofen.

Yeah ibuprofen and for us those Nelson's teething granules.

Ibuprofen. That's it really sad

Teething powders were the only thing that worked with my dc.

Teething powders & very cold yoghurt.

Thank you. Dd is 9 months and is really suffering. Ds never had any problems with teething so we got away with it quite it lightly appears!

I prefer gel to powder just for ease, and nurofen definitely. Cold vegetable sticks to chew on, or those gel teethers that go in the freezer.

I have read before about freezing water around a dummy teat iyswim but haven’t tried it as worried about choking?

She has cold cucumber during the day which seems to ease it somewhat. It seems to hit at night and it is really upsetting her.
She has no other signs of illness either.

Kids Nurofen. The supermarket own brand ibuprofen didn't work, nor did Calpol, but proper, branded Nurofen seemed to do the trick.

I find nelsons teetha powder very good, infant ibuprofen and an amber teething anklet.

LoadsaBlusher Fri 08-Aug-14 16:09:03

I combine Ashton and parsons teething powder ,baby nurofen and baby bonjella on a dummy ...
I give the teething powder whilst LO is in his bath so that by time he's out ,dressed and popped into bed its soothed him a bit .

Anbesol always effective plus frozen banana slices.

Heels99 Fri 08-Aug-14 16:10:52

Calpol, neurofen and baby bonjela

curiousgeorgie Fri 08-Aug-14 16:11:45

Ashton & Parsons with some fridge bonjela...

If breastfeeding, breastfeeding is best the relief I found.

An American clove based oil called "Punkin Butt Teething Oil" bloody miracle stuff. Almost impossible to buy over here unfortunately

rallytog1 Fri 08-Aug-14 17:32:14

Nothing <sobs bitterly>

bearfrills Fri 08-Aug-14 18:05:01

Anbesol and when it's bad a shot of Calpol with some Anbesol to soothe it while the Calpol kicks in.

I've got two of them teething at minute - 5mo his first tooth and 2yo her last teeth.
