Teething

Post by Petro on Mon 17 Nov - 19:17

I would just like to know, how long is teething supposed to last. It seems like forever since Christian has been showing teething symptoms - drooling, itchy gums, restlessness, "teething nappy", not sleeping properly at night. Every day I think it can't be that much longer, but gee, it feels like forever...!!!

Hi Petro!!
Marni is busy with her top "oogtande" and we are struggling for 2 weeks now and they have still not cut through.
It depends from baby to baby.
My pead told me I can rub Ponstan on her gums... just measure 5ml in something and use from there so you will be able to control how much you give. Definately works, but for immediate relief I still rub Prodol / Dynexan as well.

The sad part Petro - is that every child is different which means they all teeth differently...
We were really lucky in that Jess would teeth two at a time so half the amount of waking, drooling etc - well, I saw it that way :)
also, she sprouted 16 teeth in a short space of time whereas she has some friends her take forever to sprout just one tooth!

We found Bonjela to be really good with her, as well as using Ashtons and Parsons when her poohs were really sour smelling! Also, when she was a bit niggly, we would rub some Weleda Teething Remedy into her cheek... These were all recommendations from our Clinic.
lastly, a bit of calpol/panado never hurt them :)

good luck!

my lg is just over 6 months. Last night she had a fever of 39.2 I gave her ponado and this morn her temp dropped to 38.5. She is not miserable just drooling a bit extra. But her pooh seems to be a bit harder. Could it be teething.

has anyone ever tried VIBURCOL supportsitories...i rushed to the pharmacy this afternoon becos Isobel was inconsolable and i defn thought it was a pain cry from possible teething and the chemist recommended this....
i also got prodol as a back-up- she only ate half of her supper and was wailing so much...Barry and i didnt know wht to do - she doesnt hav a fever so we dont suspect an infection and we checked her body to see if maybe she hurt herself or had a painful bite and nothing... we gave her panado drops and she is asleep now but i dont know how long tht will last...

I've used Viburcol and it has helped Evangeline when she is very restless at night. I keep it in her bag incase she needs it when we are out somewhere. It seems to work fast and has few side effects.
She showed signs of teething from her 3rd month but only got her first tooth last week. She is almost 10 months now.
I use Vidol power when she is in pain at night before her last bottle of the evening. She hates any of those teething gels or liquid to rub on her gums.

Isobel's sooo unhappy now that her first tooth is peeping out - we're using powders, prodol, panado and lots of snuggling to get thru it but my poor baby is so not herself! i want to get amber beads but it doesnt seem like any shops in pretoria stock them!

Shame, Shola. The first set is rather painful. She will be back to her usual cute self within a couple of days, but yes it is distressing. Have you ever tried that RazBerry? The dummy that looks like a raspberry? that really helped K with her first rounds of teeth.

You can try at Dischem - they didn't have the amber one, but they had another teething necklace made from polished shells... works wonders :)

Thanks Niknaks! I'll try Dischem tomorrow - she seems to be having a lull in the teething now - the top right tooth is just slightly out - nothing else...oh well, we've waited this long so a couple for weeks for the first tooth to REALLY make a showing doesnt matter...i can feel it tho so that's a good sign. :)

I think Luke is also going through teething at the moment - he is almost 8 months and no visible teeth yet. He has been sleeping through the night for a couple of months (actually from 6 months when I started solids) but last night he woke up at 11pm and was so upset. He seemed to be in pain so we just tried to distract him and keep his mind off it. Prodol / Vidol are our drugs of choice - they seem to help him. It seems like you just have to take it one day at a time as there are no rules. He loves munching on his plastic bath toys so we have a sea creature at every station in the house for him...

Shame Shola! The first few a very painful for them and also some just handle it better than others. Steph is taking strain on her 4th molar... the first 3 were fine but this one is a bugga -- she's even woken up screaming in the night which she hasn't EVER done with any of her teeth but she's always just been super miserable!

I honestly don't believe much helps -- we just constantly dose with Panado and Teejel during the really bad times other wise it's just a matter of being there and helping them through it :)
