Bump I am pastthe nipple shield stage but my 26 month old is teething...All 4 back of the beyond molars together and in enormous discomfort these last 10 days.
I have never used teething gel and dunno where to find it and if it is OTC?? Please help, the little fella isin obvious discomfort and I need to sleep atl east once a week.
Poor Kabir! All four at once?? Teething gel is OTC but I've never bought it here. Try stopping in at any pharmacy--maybe someone here has an extra tube. Good luck!
they didnt really work for us, try 'frozen' teething rings? or icy cold treats, those seem to work better but the weather is a bump!

Thanks Michele. Yeah I tried for gels, butthe pharmacists didn't have any and recommended ibuprofen or acetimenophins......the weather is horrid and my son has a bad cold so frozen stuff is a big no no, including cool carrot sticks. I tried the latter but he wasn't interested. He is gnawing his fingers for now, but I know the next few weeks will be difficult!!
any idea if i can get dentinox teething gel here or is there another brand that I can get from the pharmacies here?
the little one is on a milk strike.....
I still have never seen the teething gels for sale here. We had good success with frozen things like washcloths, and teething toys. Pretty cold for that now though!
Well, in the States there is Baby Oragel. Its like adult formula Oragel, but I suppose minus the alcohol.
In all seriousness though, you could just line his gum with a cotton Q-Tip/your finger in whiskey.
My grandmother used to do it and we turned out fine ;)
