i dont kno if this is totally absurd so posting here for advice, basically no money till tomorrow and no 1 to borrow the measily 3 quid from, my ds is 14 months and teething terribly and not sleeping or eating so the thought has crossed my mind to give him 1/4 of ibprofen??

Has any 1 ever done so?

Too young. Unless you can weigh it, you might overdose him. I've done it to my 6 year old, but wouldn't to A baby.

My friend was recently in the same situation and put A shout out on facebook, and someone popped over with an eggcup full out of her own bottle.

Try giving him cold milk instead of warm, and a couple of frozen chips to nosh on.
