teething...

Seems like over the past couple weeks Nate is finally cutting in his first tooth - and doing 2 at once! The two bottom teeth are coming in and he is having a hard time resting and going down for bed.

So, all you experienced mommas and poppas - any suggestions? We've got the teething tablets, and also used some motrin tonight. Almost got some rum... :-)

Tylenol or Motrin and just a bit more understanding of the fussiness :) Haven't done much more than that for our boys.

Motrin... Tylenol... repeat! If you have lots of fussiness and fevers and nothing's helping, get checked for an ear infection just in case. With Aurora, her symptoms are the same for both! She just cut a couple of molars and those are the worst - but they're so cute with teethies!!!

Get a washcloth, soak in ice water, and put in the freezer until solid, and then let him chew on it.

Oh yeah, I've also used a piece of ice or two in those netted feeder thingies (I don't know what they're called) and Josh has seemed to enjoy it.

frozen bits of bananas are good, too...they thaw quickly and gets them ready for table food - score on 2 counts
