Please excuse the very late posting today; I have an incredibly unhappy teething baby with one toof and more on the way. I'm feeling pretty helpless here. Every time she looks up at me with oversized tears in her big brown eyes and a frown that's bound to break anyone's heart, all I know to do is hug her and tell her it's going to be OK... not exactly supermom skills. There've been a couple times she's ended up with a fever, and a few times that she's been completely inconsolable, in which I've given her some Baby Tylenol. Although it does seem to take the edge off a bit, I wouldn't say that it alleviates all of her agony, so I don't want to get into the habit of giving it to her just to give it to her, you know? Do any of you have any secrets to help soothe a teething baby? They'd be greatly appreciated. She'll also develop teething rash from time to time and I'd love some suggestions to help with that as well. I know some people put a little Vaseline on their babies' faces, but I feel like the oil in Vaseline would cause her to break out. Right?
