Coleson has been doing the same thing. I know hes in pain, b/c its the same cry but just a lighter version when he gets his shots (if that makes sense).

We are using Tylenol infants and doing 2.5 mL which my pedi recommended. I will sometimes give him some before bedtime, along with gas drops, and he has been sleeping much better. Only waking up to eat 1 or 2 times the last 3 nights.

I was thinking we should do the same now too poor guys. I want to give home something for his gums too, I just don't know what. My dh said they put oragel on my DSD but I don't fee comfortable with that...

And yes that's the exact same cry for Jett too. He never crystal and is never fussy. He always sleeps well and when he wakes to eat he always goes right back down. This is all so not like him. It's making me sad, and tired lol

Yeah i know what you mean!!

Yeah, I havent given the oragel a thought yet. Just doing tylenol. The nights that we have did the tylenol/gas drop, hes only woken once for a feeding. But i dont want to always give him the tylenol though! It cant be good for him to do it each night. Right?? Or is it ok??

That's what I think too I dunno. I doubt it's ok to do all the time. There has to be another solution. They can't sleep with the amber necklaces on either.

I've heard Hyland's teething tablets are great. Sean woke up doing that shreek this morning so I'm wondering if we're starting teething, too.

After I pump today I'm going to make some breastmilk popsicles for him.

You freeze bm in small ice cube trays. When frozen you put some small cubes in one of those mesh bags thingies with a handle. They are for babies..you can also put fruit in those bags. I'm not on my laptop or I would post a link.

Hylands makes a gel that I used for my boys. We don't use oragel ever.

How does Hyland's differ from the Oragel that makes it better?

And we tried the popsicle with the popsicle mold...poor thing went at it si hard for relief that when he got close to the end the stick cut his gum a bit so we will not use that for teething relief anymore!

hylands is totally homeopathic. it has belladonna in it, among other things. orajel contains Benzocaine, which has actually been linked to health concerns. FDA Issues Warning About Teething Gels | Parents News Now, by Holly Lebowitz Rossi
although thats super rare, i am more freaked out at how powerful and toxic it seems. my kids always hated me when i tried to use it on them. it tastes like poison (yes ive tried it). there is also stuff out there on how bad orajel is for a breastfed baby because it can screw up their latch and cause you pain and discomfort. the hylands stuff doesnt taste like anything. it is very mild but always seemed to work for my kids.

I didn't even see Cuatx part about oragel but I did see the gel you're all talking about at the store today. I got the tablets instead. Same exact ingredients in both.

He LOVED the frozen wash cloth btw
