How to Deal with Teething

Ok, so this last month has been so hard for my littlest man and his teething journey. I mean, he went seven months without one new tooth and then wham! six new teeth on top and four new teeth on the bottom, all at the same time. To say he hasn't been struggling is an understatement. And for me, well, let's just say seeing my sweet babe in pain is not so easy either. Thank goodness I picked up a few tricks with my first two babes.


One of my first tricks for relieving teething pain has been putting bananas in the freezer and letting him chew on them {peeled, of course}. Another trick has been giving him a cold, wet washcloth to bite while he's playing. This usually doesn't last long but he gets a kick out of getting the water out with his mouth. My third trick {and thank goodness} has been Infants' Advil Concentrated Drops. These drops have been a huge help in relieving the pain associated with getting new teeth for Jake. Not only that, but Infants' Advil is also a fever reducer, because I don't know about your kids but my have always seemed to get low fevers while teething. Having a medicine that takes care of the pain and fever factors during teething is a huge plus.


I started giving Jake Infants' Advil right when I noticed he had teeth breaking through his gums, probably the worst part of teething. Can you imagine getting a mouthful of teeth at one time? Thank goodness we don't remember that part of childhood. I was able to run to my local Walgreens and get more once I was out. It was super easy to find and located on the children's medicine aisle. 


Always remember that... 
  • Infants' Advil® is available for infants ages 6 to 23 months old in a non- staining, Dye-Free White Grape liquid.
  • Infants' Advil® Concentrated Drops are alcohol-free and come equipped with a syringe for easy dosing.
  • Infants' Advil® contains ibuprofen, the medicine pediatricians use most for their own kids' fevers.
  • Offers parents a simple, effective solution to relieve their babies' pain with up to 8- hours of relief in just one dose.

  2. Your baby is adorable! I remember those teething days and I also used to Advil. Advil worked great along with my baby's frozen boo boo rag.

  6. Poor little guy! Advil worked well for us too! It lasts much longer than Tylenol too, so I found it helped really well for a good nights rest. Glad he's feeling better! #ManicMondayBlogHop

  9. Awwwwww...His face!! I could feel his pain. Advil is a miracle worker! It doesn't help that it seems that all his teeth are coming in at once. Fevers are common but we mommy's still hate them. Are you using anything else to help him release the pain?

  10. When my boys were teething I used teething rings you can put in the freezer.

  11. Teething is no fun! Out of my 3 kids I had one that just has teeth pop in, not one symptom. One that got cranky, and one that was miserable, drooling, fever, no sleep. It can be so hard when you see them in pain. Poor babies!

  12. Poor little guy looks so sad! Teething is so hard for some kids. Glad he can get some relief!

  13. My little niece was really suffering from teething last week. I recommended Hyland's Teething Tablets, which are homeopathic. I don't know whether they work but it can't hurt anything and we always used them! We also used Anbesol but apparently Benzocaine is a no-no these days. I was told to rub whisky on the gums but I didn't. :-)

  14. I'm in the same boat as you! A teething baby makes for a house full of cranky people. We love using Hyland's teething tablets. Frozen fruit of any kind is my go-to but I never thought of banana, that's genius!

  15. He sure looks happier after taking the Advil. We used to have frozen rings and bananas to help the soothing too!

  16. Oh, teething! So glad we are passed that stage! Glad the medicine worked so well.

  17. Awww, poor little guy. He was such a good sport for letting you take a photo of him in distress. Well, he probably had no choice, ha ha. When my oldest was teething I felt so bad for him. That was smart to give your baby the meds when you saw his teeth break through.

  18. Sigh, this will be my life coming up here pretty soon. My little one is 3 months. :/

  19. One of mine had such intense teething pain that they broke out into fevers and couldn't sleep! Giving them a dose of tylenol was the only thing that allowed anyone to sleep those nights!

  20. Glad this worked for you. We utilize Advil at least once a month here. It seems like someone is always sick during the school year.

  21. They are so cute, but this doesn't make me miss those days! Advil was and still is a life saver for us!

  22. Both my children seem to have done and are currently doing the same. Cutting a lot of teeth at once. Advil is great. We also use the mesh fruit holders and put gerber toddler biscuits in them to chew on. Neither of my kids liked cold teethers

  24. Try putting the wet wash cloth in the freezer for a bit to make it colder.
