Teething is tough for ev­ery­one, and it takes time to fig­ure out what are the best forms of re­lief for your baby so she can set­tle and sleep well. There are lots of prod­ucts avail­able, but it does vary as to which ones are more ef­fec­tive for each child. Try us­ing teething toys and rings that can be put in the fridge to soothe her gums when she wakes. She’ll need lots of re­as­sur­ance and cud­dles, too. When a tooth may just be ready to pop through and is too painful for her to sleep, give her an in­fant ibupro­fen-based medicine, which works bet­ter for teething than parac­eta­mol­based med­i­ca­tion.
