Our 14-month-old DD is in excruciating pain, it seems, waking up screaming (every hour throughout the night), with fever. Two bottom 12-18 month molars seem to be about ready to burst forth.

We've been giving her Boiron teething tabs (used these when she originally teethed at 4 months also) and Motrin (began with this yesterday for first time), lots of lukewarm baths and nursing, cuddling and validation for her that we know what's bothering her and will take care of her.

But how? Any additional comfort measures we should be providing?

Doula Mama to DD (5/08) and DS (5/10) who taught her, in their births, the true meaning of surrender.
