my ds bottom teeth are coming through and the last few nights he has been waking screaming about 5-6 times each night and i dont know what to do. i pick him up and he falls straight back to sleep but then when i put him down, unless im lucky, he wakes up straight away and continues screaming. any tips to help with the situation? ive been giving him calpol befor bed
Are you giving the right dosage of calpol or is wearing off too quickly. Or maybe give a half dose before bed and then another half dose during the night.
Is he ok daytime napping and lying down - not an ear infection?
Or take him into bed with you - maybe cold?
I used to use a teething gel - the only one that appeared to work was Anbesol. It seemed to do the trick until the Calpol kicked in. If they are that disturbed, I don't hesitate to use medication during the night, afterall, we take paracetemol when we have a headache don't we?!
Juicychops I can totally relate, my DD is now 9 months old and has top teeth coming through, it's awful as she is waking every two hours crying/sobbing and I am trying everything to help ease her pain. I am going to see a H/V today and hopefully get some further advice will let you know.
