Teething pain -- if you don't know if your kid needs a remedy, your kid probably doesn't need a remedy!
My older son handled his teeth better than my younger son. I think we used Tylenol for a few nights for DS#1, but not much else. For A., I've needed to give him homeopathic chamomilla (IMHO, and per my MIL the professional homeopath--it is much better to give a single, carefully selected remedy than to use combo remedies) for teething pain about four times in the past week, and I've ALSO used Tylenol at night because he gets really upset/inconsolable about the pain at nighttime.
(Just went to the doctor--no ear or other illnesses seem to be causing the problem.) I can see the bulging of the teeth right under his gums now, so hopefully these two are almost through. Then on with the next 18 baby teeth, right?
We did get a somewhat better sleep last night--4 hours followed by three sets of 2 hours. Totally do-able. Phew!
A. will wear a frog costume because someone gave it to DS#1 (who wore it for about 5 minutes) and DS#1 insists that A. needs a costume, OF COURSE!
DS#1 is going to be a pirate, and I've got his shirt almost finished (just needs cuffs, and he could wear it with ragged cuffs!
), we've dyed the silk sashes (which will be part of this costume, plus favors at his bday party next month, and, if I have time, I'm going to make a little vest so he'll be warmer.
Oops. The big one just woke from his nap and the little one just got tired of the Gymini!
