Teething 10 week old??

Hi, my dd is 10 weeks old and for the past week or so she has started to dribble a lot and has been grinding her dummy in her mouth. For the past few nights she has been very unsettled and wakes every few hours for about 10 minutes.

Tonight we have given her some calpol as I suspect it is the beginnings of teeth.

Any suggestions? I really dont want to give her calpol every night - Tonight is the first night since her jabs.

Homeopathic teething powders from Boots are good as well - either Boots own or Nelsons ones called Teetha.

Cold flannel, frozen if necessary, for her to suck on?

I wouldn't worry too much about giving her calpol if she's very unsettled - it's very safe and the doses are tiny at that age.

Thanks, I will go to Boots today to look for those powders.
