Anyone got any "miracle cure/advice" on toddler teething?

He's 23 months old. It's the back teeth. And, boy, if we thought the front teeth were bad we aint seen nothing. It's awful.

He's had calpol/calpurfren and they've done nothing. The Parsons powders don't work. He wont't use a teether. We're stuck. Won't stop crying 'cos the pain is too much.

have you tried teething gel?

When i have had toothache in the past i have used cloves and that has worked but trying to get a 23 month old to chew on one..will probably be quite hard!

Raw carrot sticks, put in the freezer for a bit, are soothing to suck on - just make sure you watch him with them incase any big bits break off.

No miracle cure unfortunately you just have to ride t through. I've tried all of the above and found nothing worked. Sorry.

Thanks all.
Yes, tried bonjela/teething gel mamamia & Holly - worked on little teeth. Nothing doing on the molars.
I will try raw carrot. Thanks Kelly.
Mum won't let him have booze Steve. I wanna try that one.
I will try fennel juice goldfish. Thanks.
Medised is used already Lynds. It works when he has a cold, but the pain of the molars is awful and doing nowt now.
And Mrs Poddington, I think you might be right.
But we will keep trying every new suggestion. Thnaks to all.
Reet, back off upstairs to see how Mrs W and baby W are doing again.
Damn teeth. Why can't we be born with them (rubber type ones that get harder once baby has stpped breastfeeding)?

We used some teething powders which were very effective. They come in boxes. The actual powder is wrapped up in paper at the correct dose, and you pour it into the bawling mouth!

Blessed if I can remember what they are called!

Have a chat with your chemist / pharmacist about "teething powders". No doubt they will know what I am talking about.

Good luck! This is all part of the penalty / rewards of having kids! :p (I can afford to laugh, as it's all behind us now . . . )

you can get them in a few places I got a few for our little one last year, but in all honesty we didnt have it bad with her, we'd see her a bit whingy one day, see the red gums give her some calpol and some biccipegs to chew on, she'd wake up a few times during the night but I'd put her in the car and drive her round the M60 she'd drop back off and the teeth would have penetrated the gumline the following day.

We had it pretty easy.

Not sure what they're callled, but teething crystals from Holland and Barratt worked an absolute treat for our little one.

It sounds bad but we use calpol & the powders cos the powders are natural without paracetamol so you can use them with other things. My little girl has had 3 molars through so far and that has worked a treat for her.
It is OK I checked with a nurse that you can give them both - I know it sounds bad though giving 2 things at a time!:oops:

The teething powder, bonjela rubbed into the offending area/s, and something hard & cold to chew on (such as the frozen carrot sticks, or a teething ring).

To be honest there's not a lot else you can do except give lots of cuddles - it's a painful experience fo a child, but what 'hurts' them the most is not knowing why they're in such pain. Having some support from their Mum or Dad helps.

We always found bonjela a nightmare as you try and put it on their gums and it just rolls around at which point they swallow it, really hard to get it on the gum. However, my friend who worked in a pharmacy at the time, told me to get Anbesol liquid (you can get it from behind the counter at Boots but most pharmacy's should sell it) and it's amazing, because it's liquid you can get it straight on the pain and I now use it on myself if I've got a mouth ulcer too and believe me it does the job. It's an anaesthetic and an antiseptic so helps heal as well as numb and you HAVE to get some!!

Like most I found there is no miracle cure. The best thing is distraction. Getting outdoors I find always helps, or sometimes having a bath in the middle of the day if necessary. Letting him sit still and watch TV for example would not be helpful. Keep him active and doing things he enjoys. If he's already dosed up with calpol and ibuprofen (and make sure you are giccing both at the time intervals allowed), hopefully a bit of fun will be enough to make him forget the pain for a while.
I sympathise - wew went through it and it's not easy.
One extra tip - if nights are a problem, take it in turns - 1 night on 1 night off. It makes it easier to get through a hard night if you know a full nights' sleep is yours the next night.

Nelsons teething powders, you can buy them in Tesco & holland and barrets. They are very good plus you can use them as well as capol if needs be. Highly recommended you will wonder what you ever done without them once you have tried them out. Good luck

YES!! Nelsons! That's the powders I recommended at post #11, but I couldn't remember their name.

As alfie says, you really should try them. :thumbsup:

Wow.
Thanks everyone for your tips/advice. That's awesome of you all.
I hate the fact that rep is restricted; but I will try and get round all of you.
I have tried most of what you have suggested, and see that you all have suffered like we are right now.
We will stock up on a few Nelsons again (we called it baby cocaine), but I'm definitley gonna give Trickyjabs suggestion of teething gels a go. We've never tried that one.
These back ones are truly awful for him. It's worse at night time. Daytime isn't too bad 'cos we can distract him.
Anyway, thanks again ALL of you. I appreciate it so much.
