I got our teething tablets over in the pharmacy section of Wal-Mart. You can dissolve them in 1 oz of water and give through a bottle or what I do is hold them under his tongue one at a time until they dissolve. I have tried the infant oragel before on my own mouth and I can tell you, it lasts no time. Like maybe 5 minutes. That may be b/c I am an adult though. But, if that is the case, it shouldn't affect nursing. Oh, and don't be sorry for the ?'s, it's great that we can all help each other out!

Re: When did your DC start teething?

My first got her first tooth at 11 months, my second at 6 months, and my third got his 1 week shy of 4 months. Thankfully, I've had really easy teethers, so I can't help you.

Re: When did your DC start teething?

Maguire cut his first tooth at 4 months and just cut his last molars last month. The first and second molar sets were about a year apart--he had 16 teeth by the time he was 15 months old.

My other two were late starters--they cut their first around 9 months.

I didn't read all the posts, but I'm sure that the hazelwood or amber necklaces were mentioned...there is a coop going on for them now or you can check on ebay!

Question Re: When did your DC start teething?

Ok, sorry for the but, do I assume correctly that momma wears the necklace, not baby??? Seems like putting something around LOs neck would be a bad idea...... But they do sound interesting, DD wants to chew on my necklace all the time so wearing something she could chew on sounds like a great idea.......
