Can anyone recommend what they found worked best for their teething baby please? I've tried Nelsons granules and Dentinox but they haven't worked too well.

Anbesol liquid is your friend! You get it at the pharmacy and it’s about £5/6. You can put it on every 3 hours then use detinox/calpol gel in between. It really does work wonders

Ok if she’s 4 months that rules out things like ice lollies...

Have you tried her with a dose of Ibruprofen? It’s much better for dental pain than paracetamol.

@JiltedJohnsJulie I haven't tried ibuprofen yet but I'm going to buy some so it's there incase nothing else works. Thanks!

the teething gel is linked to some illnesses id do research on the medicens because i remember reading some scary stuff on it. calpol and neuroffen didnt work at all for me. the teething powder all natual did in the beginning not any more and so did breastmilk lollies and chamomile tea in a cloth and shoved in the freezer, that really worked but got lazy doing it he hated the taste of chamomile lollies though but loved the little frozen cloth. also my son loves the silicone toothbrush from morrisons.
