Medicating toddler at bedtime for teething

(3 Posts)

DS is 19mo and cutting his last four molars (early I know!) If I give him Nurofen at bedtime he will sleep for 4hrs+ before first wake up. If I don't then he will wake every 1.5hrs through the night. I'm really worried about doing this every bedtime though as obviously it's a medicine and these molars are going to take ages (his first set took about 4 months from beginning to end). But the alternative is a really crappy night for everyone. WWYD?

My DS is 21 months and seems to be constantly teething. Giving him teething granules is almost part of the bed time routine now blush

If it helps him don't stress about it. He's in pain and the nurofen relieves it.

DD tether until she was 3 abd I'm pretty sure when those back teeth were coming through we dosed her every night, quite often with a triple whammy of Calpol, calprofen and teething powder! She survived.
