DD teething at ten weeks!! What gel to try? Anything else??!

After screaming hysteria, cramming fists into mouth and more than usual dribbling, we have concluded (along with the GP) that DD is having a bit of early teething... She is only ten weeks.

Which teething gels are good (and aspirin/paracetamol free, as recommended by the GP)? Not sure how I am going to get any gel into her little mouth though...

Any other tips or advice? The poor little thing is in real distress at times sad

Think she can have Ashton and Parsons powders. Much easier to give than gel which just gets wiped off when you're trying to put it in their mouth in my experience.

Soon you will be one tooth down, twenty odd to go!

Forgot to say, at night with Dd1 when she was teething we used to take her downstairs to watch BabyTV. It distracted her and calmed her down at least for a while

Anbesol liquid is the best in my opinion, works instantly. Just check with the chemist if it is ok to use at 10 weeks.
