Growing teeth can be pretty painful. If you have any recollection of how it felt when your molars came in, you can imagine how painful it must be for little babes. My son was a bit more dramatic than my daughter. They both popped their first two bottom teeth first and early at just 4 1/2 months. Usually a runny nose and lots of wanted cuddles accompany teething. In this post, I wanted to share my go to’s for comforting a teething baby.
I used this a lot with my son. I mentioned he was a bit more dramatic. The baby needing Chamomilla is extremely irritable, cranky and cross during teething. They are so sensitive to the pain that very little is tolerated. They demand to be held and carried around but after a while this no longer comforts.
They can also hit out in anger. The face is flushed one side, stools are loose and greenish and they are usually worse in the evening. They sweat easily and dislike feeling hot. Both baby and parents are extremely distressed. I would give this to my son in the middle of the night when nothing would soothe him. It would take a little while to kick in, but after that it worked like a charm and he would drift off to sleep again.
