are camilia teething liquid safe or no?

Untested: Although the product has been around for many years, there does't seem to be scientific proof as to either effectiveness or safety. There are no standards for herbs and supplements, and therefore no incentive to test them. On a personal basis, lacking evidence, I would not choose it for my family.

A 29-year-old member asked:

If I use the ferber method, what do I do during growth spurts or teething?

There are Exceptions: The ferber method is fine as long as the baby has no other issues. For example teething can be painful and it is not the proper thing to do to not console the baby. When the baby has an illness, the same rule applies. Otherwise thismethod s a good one to promote sleep hygiene.

It's possible!: Although most babies start chewing and drooling at around this age and don't start cutting teeth for several more months it's possible for teeth to start coming in now. In fact, sometimes a baby can be born with one or more teeth! thankfully, that's rare. If you look at your baby's mouth and you see one area of gum that's red and swollen, and you feel something quite sharp underneath, it's a tooth!

See the Dentist: Persistant dental pain should not occur. See your dentist to find out what the problem is.

If it's pain that's the main symptom, you may be having tooth grinding without realizing it. The dentist definitely should be able to help figure out the problem with you.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is teething normal and are there other symptoms of this period that I should watch out for?

Depends.: "teething" usually happens on and off between 6 & 18 months but is usually not very bothersome to babies (except for the molars). It gets blamed for everything: fevers, irritability, diarrhea, waking at night, runny noses and coughs, but it is not usually the real culprit. All babies chew and drool at this age whether they are teething or not. Consider other causes if symptoms are significant.

Cold teething rings: The best treatment is cold teething rings. You can also give infant tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen for a particularly bad spell.
