My all time favorite remedy is half a frozen mini-bagel. Get them in the freezer case and separate the halves when you get home, then re-freeze. They taste much better than plastic, are toddler-sized, and seem to really help.
For a really rough night, there's baby Tylenol.
Hope it gets better soon!!

you mean apart from the gripe water, baby anbesol and teething rings? lol
I gave mine frozen waffles. they were cold enough and eventually became soft so he could eat them and i didnt have to worry about a piece breaking off that he might choke on.
Also, an ice cold wash cloth may work, and massage her gums every now and then.
Don't be suprised if she starts running a fever though... I'm not sure if she has, but I didn't know it either that when baby's teethe bad enough, they can run high fevers up to 100 degrees. So don't panic if she has a high fever one day.
oh and i forgot to mention sometrhing else that worked with my son. Give her a baby tooth brush. If she has the dexterity yet to move it against her gums, she'll be soothing herself while keeping her gums clean too! lol
This morning she did have a fever of 100 degrees. I feel so bad for her. I hope those teefers break through soon.
I think I will give her a baby tooth brush and see how she does with that.
What is gripe water?
umm... i dont really know exactly what is in gripe water that makes it work. It can be found in any pharmacy in the baby section. I know that years and years ago, gripe water had a certain amount of alcohol in it to ease the pain, but now that's obviously changed and it's a different medicinal ingredient instead. It's pretty cheap and works pretty well for mild to moderate discomfort.
