I'd really hate to do it, but poor Danny has *four* molars coming in at the same time
. Teething tablets only seem to take the edge off, but aren't really helping all that much. He won't suck on a cold washcloth or drink the camomile tea I made for him. Today he is just chewing on his finger & crying/screaming a lot.
Any suggestions for something else I might have around the house or that I should go out & get that would work as well for the pain?

At our house I prefer the dye free Motrin, over tylonol, but I think they both work. If it were me, I would give him a does. And I always try to time it so that my dd can have a does at bed time on those really awful days. I don't think it is a bad thing at all to relieve a child's pain and use medicine when needed.
Hope your little one feels better soon.

We had much better luck with Motrin than Tylenol. Never did find any dye free Infant's Motrin locally, so had my parents send it from Canada (bigger bottles, much lower cost too... go figure). The next stage up, Childrens?, is available dye free locally.

For pain like you're describing, I'd give the Motrin, at least at night.

Thanks! I wouldn't have thought of the dye, never having used it. As luck would have it, I'm in Canada
. I'll go get some today.

I did give him some Rescue Remedy a while ago & he seems somewhat better now, but afternoons have been better anyway, so it's hard to know if it worked.
