Every 4 hours: Paracetamol (acetaminophen in the US) can be dosed up to every 4 hours. Ibuprofen can be given up to every 6 hours. Try giving it one hour before bedtime.

Try cold teething ring. Never put baby to bed w a bottle. 1st Dental Examination no later than Age 1...see a Pedodontist, a Pediatric Dental Specialist for all the same reasons you see a Pediatrician, a Pediatric Medical Specialist. Pedodontist will give you excellent teething instructions.
