    Thanks. He's working on his first molars. There is one point out on either side, but ugh. In September, he had one tooth, now he has 10. It's been non stop.

    I'm open to any new and unusual remedies!

    Have you tried a amber teething necklace, I have been wanting to get one for Izzy. I have heard really good things about them.

    I just got an Inspired by Finn necklace for Dylan. We got it on Friday and it does seem to make a difference. I got this one because supposedly the light, cloudy amber is the best. It's really cute too, although my DH was calling him the hippie baby when I had him in the necklace and the pants I hand knitted for him.

    Sandhya cried throughout the entire game today.

    She only has her first and second teeth poking through but we must be due for some more considering how ornery she is.

    I have never seen those necklaces before. I may need to think about that. Meredith is getting 4 teeth, all at once.
  • fuzzbucketfuzzbucket Posts: 996Registered Users
    I think I'll order a necklace. It is worth a try.

    Kaia, does he play with it or leave it alone? Harry is a fiddler, by nature. I worry he'll break it within the first day.

    I just looked into it some more, I don't this this will work. I can't imagine it lasting more than a day around here.

    I forgot the name but there are these homeopathic teething tablets you can buy at the drugstore. They worked wonders for my little one.

    Found them

    He protested when I put it on and yanked on it a few times. I just distracted him. Then he pulled once or twice the second day. He seems to leave it alone now. It probably helps that I don't take it off, even though I know it says to take it off at night.

    We went from using Hyland's 3-4 times a day and Tylenol at night to only having to use Hylands once or twice a day. I don't think it's a coincidence.

    We use Hyland's all the time. Love them. At night, we do Motrin, Orajel and Hyland's to help him sleep. As with everything with Harry, teething affects his sleep more than anything. He doesn't scream and cry a lot, but is just awake with his hands in his mouth.

    Dylan doesn't cry much either, he just gets really mean! :shock: We call him destructacon because he just tries to break everything (including the cats). I've always felt a little funny giving him Motrin and Tylenol without a 'good' reason, but like you said, they need to sleep. What can you do? But I'm definitely glad to use it less.

    Kaia - Giving him Motrin or Tylenol before bed while he's teething is good reason. While they're lying down, the throbbing from teething can get worse and interfere with their sleep. Motrin and Tylenol help alleviate the throbbing.

    DS has one more molar yet to pop through and then he's done until his 3rd molars. I keep checking and it's not coming through.

    I ordered the same necklace that Kaia posted for my baby, I think it helps. I notice a differance when I forget to put it on him.

    Yes, yes it does. Lilly has her bottom incisors coming in. The right one has just broken the gum this weekend and the left looks like it could any minute. I haven't slept a full night in over a month, she makes it an epic battle to feed her during the day and waits until the middle of the night to eat twice, she's fussy and clingy, etc. I think I actually have some baby Tylenol and we will be trying it tonight along with the Hylands tablets.

    This is timely- I just gave A some Motrin before putting him to bed. The teeth don't seem to bother him until he's trying to sleep and he's got 4 coming in right now (2 more on top and 2 more on the bottom- he has 8 in all).

    Is it safe to use hylands in conjunction with the tylenol or motrin?

    I actually thought about this right before I was putting Lilly down to bed. I only gave her the Hylands tonight and I will look up the safety concerns tomorrow.

    I would think so, since the Hyland's is homeopathic and would work completely differently from the Motrin.

    And I have to plug the amber teething necklaces again. It's totally amazing how much of a difference it makes! We've had ours off for a while because it's slightly too long and D can chew on it. I definitely notice him getting worse. I tried to put it back on a few times, but he now chews on it right away. :? I have to go to the bead store and get it shortened.

    And my totally mainstream mom really shocked me the other day. She asked about the beads D is wearing in his pictures lately, and why I have him looking like a gypsy child. :roll: So I told her about the amber teething necklaces, and she tells me that oh yeah, amber is great, you can even dissolve a piece in pure alcohol and rub it on for arthritis and other pains. :shock: My mom is more hip than I thought. :laughing9:

    I ordered mine a little too long also, since he's still little though I can just tuck it in his shirt and he forgets about it.

    i might have to get one of those necklaces for majerle. she sprouted her first tooth only 6 months ago, so theyre all pretty much coming in at once. she would love the necklace.
  • DelmaDelma Posts: 1,121Registered Users
    Bumping this because I never knew what to say when people asked me if this worked because I wa never consistent in putting it on him, but when he was getting several teeth at once and waking up off and on all night I decided to put it on him and not take it of unless swimming or bathing and boy has it made a differance!:blob4:
  • medussamedussa Posts: 12,993Registered Users
    Bumping again because I'm considering buying a teething necklace for my daughter. I'm just concerned about these necklaces being a strangulation hazard.

    ETA: I have no idea what length to buy. My daughter is 8 months old.

    Edited again: I got the 12" Light Mix. Hopefully it will arrive soon and I'll post our experience with it.
