I give my DD pain meds for teething. Some weeks it's 4 out of 7 nights. It's because for some babies, teething isAGONY. She cries, she wakes up alot, she bites us, she bites herself. She has gone days getting only 9 hours of sleep total a day and being utterly exhausted. I don't like it, but sometimes it is really worth it.

We're another family who uses ibuprofen instead of tylenol. Tylenol is just too toxic and doesn't relieve pain as well. We never gave more than one dose of ibuprofen a day and usually for teething it was usually about 4 doses a week when it got really bad.

after thinking about it, i realized that my dd went through a period where she was getting motrin almost every night for a bit. i would try to hold out and she was just so miserable and then i'd give her the motrin and she could finally sleep. my ds had never had a problem with teething so it took me awhile to figure it out.


i think it's probably just a stage and your dd will be fine.

eh. who needs a signature?
