Couple of quick questions..
All right, believe it or not Atalia is teething HORRIBLY- she started at 2 months. Top gums are swollen and you can see the top 4 teeth through them, sepecially the ones in the middle, can also clearly see the bottom two. The top gums are so bad that they are white from the pressure of the teeth and the bottom outline of one of the top two teeth is sooo bright red it looks like the gum is bleeding from the inside. Considering all of this, Atalia is taking it pretty well- of course, pretty uncomfortable at times, wakes up screaming biting her hand, and many times I have to put the bottle in the freezer so she can drink it, sometimes takes for ever to fall asleep at night and naps during the day are pretty off.. Other than the usual cold cloths, cold teethers, tylenol/motrin -any other ideas for a three month old? I need to get em some motrin and try it for tonight, because I will only try it at night time- do not want her around the clock on this stuff. She is having better days witht the reflux thank God- month 2 was really rough regarding the reflux. She saw the pedi yesterday to rule out ear infection (grabbing ears and crying- teething related) and I asked him about the color of the back fo ehr tongue- rusty brownish, since she was about 1 month old. He says he thinks it's irritation from the acid of the reflux- anyone' elses's baby has done this?. Will ask GI in follow up in October. God Bless you all- gotta go!!

I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
poor thing!!! all i can say is OUCH!!!!!!!

I was told you can't give motrin until they are 6 months old. I'd check with the doc about it. I don't have any other ideas. Considering that Amalia's teething was so bad you probably know more them me:) It sounds so painful.

I will double check with pedi tomorrow about the motrin....he told me I could give her 1.25 ml (she weighs 12 pounds). Thanks everyone.
Check with your
doctor first!
