Default Teething

I never knew teething would be so stressful.
My daughter is in the beginning of her teething stage and
its really getting the best of her, (and me.) I have the baby orajel and i bought her a teething ring. Shes always running a fever (which i know is common with teething) but its hindering her sleep. She doesn't want to go down for a nap, she screams when i try. She's not eating as much, she just wants to gum the nipple of the bottle. i have baby tyelonol and put a cold wash cloth on her head. I even try a cool bath.
Well, it is very stressful and i feel like i try everything to no avail.
I was wondering maybe some moms out there might have some magic technique that worked with them? lol
Or do i just keep doing what im doing and it will get better over time?

Ohhh.. the teething days.. Yes, it's quite painful and all the symptoms seems normal. How high is the fever? The Tylenol should help her with the pain and the fever. It it is not, call the doctor and see what else you could try. They should be more than happy to tell you over the phone.

What you could try is ice on the gums to ease the pain and reduce swelling. Or get put teething ring in the fridge for a while and get it really really cold.

The pain will intensify until the tooth comes through, but once it starts coming through it should get better. It's just getting the tooth through the gum that is the hardest.

her temp varies between 99.6 and 100.1, which I heard is normal for teething. I will try putting it in the fridge. I had put it in the freezer but I think it was too cold for her, she didnt like that too much. thanks so much for the reply!
