I'll post this in LWAB, too, for our DDC mamas. Florence is almost 16 weeks old and has been gnawing at her hands, drooling, fussy, and, suddenly, waking up every 2 hours at night! ugh. this after over a month of her sleeping through every night. She is so cranky and uncomfortable. Anyone else going through this, yet? If so, can you tell me how to comfort these wee ones? No popsicles for mine - she's too little!

Elowyn cut a bit of a tooth through about 2 weeks ago, right before her 3 month b-day.

we swear by the Hyland's homeopathic teething tablets. they have saved me through two teething kids, and already started using them with this one.

once they're able to hold things and put things in their mouth more easily, a wet washcloth stuck in the fridge to get nice and cold is a wonderful teething toy. though all my kids have favored daddy's bit 'ole knuckle to anything else

Mine is. Jude's 16 weeks old and a drooling, hand gnawing mess.

I have been letting him suck on frozen washcloths and just ordered him an amber teething necklace. They don't suck on the necklace, but the amber reacts with the skin in some way that soothes teethers. It is also said to work for adults with arthritis, headaches, carpal tunnel, etc.

I bought mine off hyenacart here:

BUT there are some on etsy too.
