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
