okay so my daughter has been very fussy for a couple days--anyways---noticed two bottom teeth about to come through on her bottom gums. I felt bad I hadn't given her pain relief as of yet. ---I gave her 2 Hylands teething tablets and THEN looked at the bottle (old habits die hard-right?!!!) - it says is has Lactose and then two letter---C.F. maybe?!!! I'm sure someone here knows--I shouldn't give this to my dairy sensitive daughter right? (also-there's caffeine in them- I know)<br>
what can I use? I THOUGHT about giving tylenol--but of course will not--she's 7 mo and I haven't had to give her any yet and want to avoid it...also---is there crap in there that I need to consider even more now that i have allergic kids?!!<br><br>
my friend mentioned clove oil mixed with olive oil---is this okay considering she hasn't had any solids or foreign in her mouth? as in the olive oil--I'm sure she'll swallow a litte. any help would be lots of help--she and i need relief!

What can't she have? There's corn in regular liquid tylenol. We've been okay with the dye free infant tylenol (even though she's almost 4). My DD can't do any of the motrins, dye free or not so I think that's a sensitivity to ibuprofin. Found that out with a high fever that wouldn't break and I'd run out of tylenol and kept vomiting up the Motrin.

Dairy intolerant kids + hylands = nasty bad poops.<br>
There is another brand of teething tablets (hmeopathic) that is dairy/ lactose free. Humphrey's: <a href="http://www.walgreens.com/store/product.jsp?CATID=100357&navAction=jump&navCount=0&nug=VPD&skuid=sku2388719&id=prod2389241" target="_blank">http://www.walgreens.com/store/produ...id=prod2389241</a>

Hmmm... I wonder what those ARE made of then, especially since they're fruit flavored.<br><br>
Boiron's Camillia is lactose free- it's just in water. Comes in a white box (not the chamomilla in the round tube!)

i second the Boiron's. it worked magic for Mr. Pants. we don't have the dairy issues, so i'd tried the Hyland's first. it did nothing but the Boiron's was great. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Wherever you got the Hylands should have Boiron's too. Or you could order it online.

This I would combine with castor oil and rub it along the jawline and up around the ears *externally.*

I wish I had seen this before---I went to 2 place (Fred meyer incdluded ) and couldn't find ANYTHING--i gave in tonight (my hubby thought I was cruel) and gave my DD her first dose of dye free tylenol--I feel so bad--she was really hurting---ah I wish i had planned ahead to have something on hand-I want to get the cammomille stuff online but once it gets here--how much tylenol is that (i don't plan on every giving it agin--however i am in a hard situation whereas my hubby has the car all day until 6 pm for school and work and the ONE herb shop in town that Ifound closes at 6 (that's why we missed it tonight)--any other home things I can do to put off giving her more tylenol tomorrow?!! AH I feel very guilty- of course it's dye free but it has sucralose!!! ah i kept saying honey we just gave our baby sucralose--it's PROVEN to screw up health. anyways ...the guilt--but she is sleeping

Okay I know this has been said before, but lactose does not have casein (milk protein) in it. It is milk sugar only, and babies are not lactose intolerant. There is lactose in breastmilk. People with milk allergy can take homeopathics without having reactions, in my experience and research.

I run some really cold water on a washcloth (or put it in the freezer for about 5 minutes) and let DD chew on it. It seems to help a lot when her teeth are really bothering her.<br><br>
So that's my advice- give her something soft and cold to chew on, rub her gums with your finger (use a bit of pressure), let her nurse a lot for comfort.

DD reacted to my last remedy, and it was the tablet kind (higher amount of lactose). I read later that PB recommends not using those for milk-allergic babes.<br><br>
The problem with the lactose is that it's still cow's-milk derived. So if you have a dairy intolerance and react to more than just the protein, lactose can still be a problem.

We have always put an ice cube in a thin wash cloth (baby sized) and tied it up with a tight rubber band. She LOVES her "ice rag" and it has helped so much along the way. She still loves it even though she is done teething. (Woo Hoo!!!!! - let's not mention 2 year molars right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> ) You can take a hammer to it also so it's all crunched up and then it more easily provides relief to various teeth since it molds.

Absolutely not the case for me, my babies or my clients. We are not talking the pellets here, but the tablets. It's a world of difference. I have seen (almost without exception) babies who are dairy allergic have green mucusy poop every. single. time. I have not, however seen the pellets affect almost any.<br><br>
Breastmilk has lactose, but not the *same* lactose. I would not give the tablets to a dairy allergic kid. There are alternatives.

Things to have on hand for a teething baby....<br><br>
homeopathics (you'll get that covered!)<br><br>
a cold washcloth....the ice is wonderful.<br><br>
a carrot! (provided there's no allergy and no teeth....this is a great thing for a babe to teeth on.)<br><br>
castor oil with either hypericum or essential oils (chamomile, clove, myrrh.) Just blend and rub along the outer jaw and up around the ears. Do this every two hours or so. It works like a charm. Castor oil is anti-inflammatory and hypericum is analgesic...as is clove, chamomile and myrrh.<br><br>
chest rub...odd but true. If you rub this along the neck, up around the ears you may find that the pain is greatly diminished.<br><br>
onion juice. Alot of the pain of teething actually happens in the ears and drops of fresh onion juice are AMAZING for dealing with pain.
