so tuckr acts like he is teething, cranky super drooly, lack of appetite then starving, shewing on everything.
but NOTHING has worked and i mean nothing. i have literally tried everything. he hates his amber necklace and wont leave it on. he just gets mad and screams til i take it off him. teething tablets, orajel, even so much as dipping my finger in brandy and rubbing it on his gums (only did that once. dont judge.)

ive tried frozen wash cloths, every teething toy under the sun, and not a dang thing.

is there ANYTHING else i could try?
i feel so bad, those top teeth are just killing him. they are swollen and red. i asked his doctor if there was anything wrong and nope thats normal. but im at my wits end. ifeel so bad for my little man :/
any advice would be great.

No advice. Just wanted to offer hugs, poor Tuckr and mama.

Will he let you rub your finger on them? Like you run it under cold water and then rub it in his mouth? Cam isn't quite teething yet, but he enjoys that from time to time. I have a weird child

I have nothing to offer you haven't tried. Does he eat any finger foods? You could try giving him something cold or frozen to chew on? Like frozen banana.

Try clove oil. It was a godsend when I was going through my broken filling and subsequent root canal while PG. I read recently that it can be used for teething as well. I think the instructions said to mix 1 drop with 2 drops of almond oil or coconut oil and it helps to numb and soothe the gum.

I'm right there with you right now. Cora screamed from sun up to sun down yesterday. Advil didn't touch it.

Essential oils are great, but you have to be careful with them. Make sure it isn't too strong.

"Clove oil is a possibility too and it works very well but you must be very careful with it as it can cause blistering of the gum if used in excess. It should be diluted in a carrier oil - 1 drop of clove oil in 1-2 tablespoons of almond oil or another edible oil - and gently massaged into the gum."

I'm glad he found some relief!

yea i dont even use a full drop. i dip a toothpick in lightly and then swirl the tooth pick in the almond oil i use peppermint as kind of aroma therapy (its the same as my perfume which i know he finds comforting) and i dont use it all the time. ive only used it twice thus far and only after ive tried everything else first. its been very helpful!!!!!

clove oil is amazing... i've used it a few times myself as has my husband. i know a few things have been pointed out about it, but also note that it's a blood thinner.... so definitely continue to use sparingly
