I had forgotten this <wail>

DS3 (6 months) has screamed for the last week none stop, isn't feeding properly so is feeding more often (because every 2 hours day and night is obviously not enoughhmm)

and my head hurts and i am tired and i want to go out tonight without him but i can't <wail>

Mine is also 6 months and teething!

Spoke to pharmacist and she suggested Anbusol which seems to be better than Bonjela. Not magic, but seems to help.

Meet up on this thread, say, um, 3:00 am? smile

I feel your pain

Ds2 (6.5months) is just the same.

I want to go out too - go out and never come back.........................

No advice, just lots of sympathy

Ashton powders?

Anbusol!!! THANK YOU!!! we used it for DS2 but could only remember that it sounded like Anusolblush

<rushes to check spelling>

It's: Anbesol

that would also help ILMD! lol

he has stopped and even <whispers> smiled!

he now has a mouth full of rice cake - maybe that is the answer???

Oooooo I feel your pain dd (6 months) got the botton 2 and 16 weeks, that was bad bad bad.

Now she's getting the top 2 and it is worse.


Not sure who's wailing is worse, hers or mine. grin

DS1 got his without us even noticing
DS2 wailed all the time but didn't get any until 11 months

there is a reason you forget all this!!

could someone please explain: why is teething worse at night? hmm

MerlinsBeard Thu 28-Aug-08 18:37:50

because in the night invisible pain monsters attack baby gums

it's true

Anbesol liquid is definately great as are teething powders.

The liquid stays on your finger and goes where you put it until gels that slip off and numb babies tongue... we became convinced that our son was addicted to bonjela - i think he just loved the taste.
When we switched to anbesol which tastes awful, he fussed a lot less.

My son seemed to be teething for months without much progress. Top two arrived about 13 months. At 18 months he got the bottom two front ones, two top teeth either side of the front two, two top molars and two bottom molars in just 3 weeks. shock

We survived by alternating between calpol, calprofen and liberal amounts of anbesol

We used to put some gel on a toothbrush. She quickly learnt that moving it around her mouth and chewing on it helped her teeth. She now brushes her teeth really well too.
