What can I give my 5 month old for teething other than tylenol/motrin?
One tooth already came, and he's been crying very strongly lately.
(My other kids got their teeth muich later!)
Thanks,
Ana

My husband makes a chamomile and catnip tea and then freezes it into ice cubes. We put the cubes into a mesh feeder. She seems to love it.

Trying to balance a preschooler and peace....

Hmmmm... there have been lots of threads on thsi lately, but a few ideas:

- amber teething necklace for him/amber nursing necklace for you
- frozen washcloths, ice cubes in a mesh feeders
- wooden teethers/metal spoons
- lots of nursing and cuddles

I will second Hyland's Teething tabs! They helped us through three teething kids and can now be found most everywhere.
