To use teething gel

Can I overdose DS on it?
Is it horrific I'm giving it him every night??
It's the only thing that works but I've just been light heartedly googly and found articles on the evils of it and how it can affect breathing etc. He's on o2 but no one has ever said anything

DS is 21 months and his fangs are coming through. Equivalent on bottom row due and then rear molars and we're all done.
He asked up crying and only Teething gel on his dummy will bring him down (no I do not want a debate on letting my son have a dummy at his age). He has it occasionally awake but will chew lots of things but obviously when he's in his cot I don't want to give him a wet cloth to chew and Teething rings are harder to manipulate when you're mostly asleep and the Gap is only one tooth

Try ambesol. Teething gel is crap and powerless.

He loves it, will hand me his dummy if he sees the tube...
Is anbesol an equivalent?

I can't see anything wrong with using it once a day! I use t multiple times through the day when DS is bad. Also use Anbesol which can only be done every 3 hours but works much better.

Definitely more than once a day, when I say every night I mean when he goes down and then several times depending on waking. I couldn't sleep - waiting to see if he settled and Googled it and it started going in about one of them freezing their throats so they can't breathe. Not what you want to read with a child on o2 and a cdh. No one's ever mentioned anything against it before.
I think he likes the taste too

I was buying teethers at a department store when my daughter was teething, and the cashier informed me that Anal Ease is great for teething.

Anal Ease???

Yup. And she asked me if I knew what Anal Ease was, and I didn't know if it was better to feign ignorance, or to admit I had heard of it.

The only thing that worked for my lo was Calgel teething gel. We used it when he needed it, but no more than the recommended dose.
