What can I give my baby to soothe his gums?
My 3 month old is teething, but it seems to bother him mostly during the night. What can I give him?
Three months old is a pretty young age to be teething. Teething can often be blamed for many symptoms such as bad mood, diarrhea, runny nose, disrupted sleep, fever, etc., but it is not the cause of these things. Check on any other possible medical issues with the pediatrician. If your pediatrician gives you the green light, your baby can receive an appropriate dosage of a pain reliever like acetaminophen (hich will last 4 hours) at bedtime.
