Jack teething really badly! 2 at the same time, his bum is red raw with blisters, I'm using sudocreme, also given him calpol & ibuprofen (& teething granules!?!) But ... He won't eat & has only taken 5oz of milk so far today, what else can I do or is it just a ride it out & keep the meds going? .... xx

Metanium is good for a sore bum

Poor baby. Just keep the meds going, definitely the teething powders as they help neutralise his wee, avoid anything citrus and acidy. Maybe give him calpol half an hour before eating?
Something cold to chomp on, an ice pole or one of those toys you can put in the fridge to get really cold.

Thanks all! It's the poor bugger not eating & a butt like a baboon that seems to be so bad confused

I remember when my DS cut 4 front top teeth at once. Not nice. Bright red blistered bum, not eating or drinking and pooing for England and chomping at the bit. Sodding awful. He was only like that for a day and a half tho so just bear with it. I did use metonium as its a bit thicker than sudocrem. Hope they come through soon
