Truthfully nothing really worked with Ella, or Abbie. Katie just gets on with it and copes. The only things I have found to work, is dummies and bonjela kept in the fridge. With the dummies change the one they are using for one from the fridge every hour or so. Everything is really cold against their wee gums so acts as a mild anaesthetic. That and lots of calpol just as they are going to bed to let them sleep xxx
my 2 month old has now started teething i thought this was too early but apparently they can start teething as early as 6 weeks! at the moment its not bothering him too much just red cheeks and chewing on his fists seem to soothe them, chewing on a little teething dragonfly he got with his playgym and cooled water (nearly cold). They do say that a cold carrott is good for them but not if they have teeth as they can chew a bit off and choke on it.

I used nelsons teething gel with Lewis, that seemed to work. I also used to give him calpol on a night time to at least let him try and get some sleep when it was really bad. When he was older I used to let him gnaw on a wooden spoon, sounds stupid but he loved it!
