Re: Teething
Aug 27, 2008
I use to put the baby orajel on my daughter's gums and then give her Tylenol - by the time the orajel wore off (which seems to be about 20 minutes), the Tylenol was kicking in for the pain. Some people say Motrin at night because of the throbbing when they lay down, but Tylenol seemed to work for us.

I'm not sure how old your twins are (whether or not they can hold a teething ring in their hand or not) - my daughter started teething really early and she was not able to really hold something like this so I would take the bottle nipples and put them upside down in an ice cube tray and fill them with water and put them in the freezer. After they were frozen, I would put them back on the bottle and hold it for her to chew and suck on for relief on her gums.

If they are able to hold things, you can try the mesh fruit holders (sold at stores for approx. $5) - these work great for either a teething cookie or an ice cube - anything cold or hard for them to chomp on.

Good luck!! :)
