How can I tell if my baby is in pain from teething??? What can I do if my baby is teething & she is in alot of pain??? It said in this health book that I have that you might want to give your child some ice,an ice pop,or a slice of frozen banana to gnaw on.Has anyone done that before???

Hello there. I don't know about giving your baby ice, I've read that it can be dangerous and painful on their gums. I don't know about the ice pop or banana thing either - but what I read was to do with water-filled teething rings and it said never to freeze them, only put them in the fridge to keep them cool. Your dd may like to try these or a cold wet facewasher to suck on. You can also get teething gels to put on her gums - I believe a popular one in the U.S is Oragel (sorry if that's incorrect- we have Bongela in Australia). You could also try Tylenol before bedtime if her gum pain is interrupting her sleep. I never actually know for sure if my 5.5 month old dd is in pain from teething, she sometimes has very grumpy days and I've noticed that on these days she has her hands in her mouth more than usual, so I kind of a__sume her gums are hurting. Even if I just rub a finger along my dd's lower gum she seems to really like it. Hope I've helped!

I've heard many mommies swear by hylands teething tablets. my mom said nothing worked better for her than frozen washcloths and frozen peas!
