How many teeth does your baby have at present?
Is he/she currently teething? How is it affecting him/her?
What treatment do you use - medicine and other forms?

Amara has 8 teeth and she doesn't appear to be teething right now. I've never used any medicines as she's never been fussy with cutting her teeth. Only her sleep pattern changes and she drools a lot.

How many teeth does your baby have at present? 7- 4 top, 3 bottom (the 3'rd is just now poking through)
Is he/she currently teething? How is it affecting him/her? Yep he's cutting at least one tooth on the bottom. It doesn't seem to be effecting him at all really. He's drooling a lot and sleeping a bit more.
What treatment do you use - medicine and other forms- I try to avoid using meds unless its really bad, when it hits that point we usually grab the motrin (we've maybe had to use it twice and we save it for bedtime). Teething tablets are great too for maintaining some of that comfort if we need meds. Past that I just give him more firm foods to chew on. He was really digging that partially frozen strawberry earlier!

What a fab idea freezing fruit for chomping down on! It's so horrible when the babies are suffering with their teeth

I've tried teething gel, how are you supposed to get that on the gums lol! I think she just licked it off my finger!!!


Didnt give her anything in particular, she does bite on her toys and i gave her teethers which she kind of just ignored. One even leaked - the kind you put in the fridge? i wouldnt recommend them.

She has 2 bottom ones, and she didnt do too bad when cutting them considering what some babies go through. She did go off her food and she had the rosy cheeks and was always poking her gums with her finger for ages before i noticed she had a tooth, then it was 2 more weeks before the next tooth- she's doing that again and sometimes has the red cheeks so I think another is on the way but I cant feel anything.

her top gums though look pretty swollen at the moment so I am thinking it wont be too long before i see some top gum action!

By your posts, I think it sounds like you're in the UK? Have you tried Anbesol? Kirsty was the same with teething gels, she would lick/sook it off my finger before I could get near her gums, but anbesol is a liquid and it's so much easier to use. I have used it both for Kirsty's teething symptoms and my own ulcers. It's really good.

I just got Calgel and also the Parsons powders. I'm not sure those powders actually do anything!
I havnt heard of the one you mentioned but I would give it a go if it gets bad enough.

I used to use the Ashton Parsons but like you wondered if they helped... however last month Kirsty's poo was affected by her teething for the first time, really loose. So I used them then and saw a difference in her poo! It does say on them they are to help with the upset tummy teething can cause though.

Let me know what you think of the calgel? I bought some ages ago but never used it
