I know I've complained about this before but it's getting worse. Grace is having such a hard time with teething and I'm at a loss for what to do. Tylenol is the only thing that seems to help at all but I hate to give it to her for too long. I'm very careful with the dosage, but we are now on day 4 of extreme teething pain and I don't want to keep giving her Tylenol every day. She has two teeth already in and one that is taking forever to break through. She grunts and screeches in pain, but when I give her Tylenol she suddenly relaxes and is able to rest. Last night was one of the worst we've ever had, she was up at 12, 1 and then from 2 to 6....I'm exhausted and I feel so bad for her. It seems to hurt her to lay down. If I hold her, she'll sleep. If she's in the swing, she'll sleep; but the moment I try to lay her down in her crib she wakes up in pain again. I've been letting her nap in the swing for the past week or so but I think that's actually hurting because now she wants to the motion to help her sleep.
I've tried teething gel, frozen/cold washclothes and toys, nursing, teething toys....nothing seems to help with the pain. I know it's just a stage, but I'm very ready for this stage to be over!
