Q&A: molar teething

If you like to see amazing things, watch my friend’s brother and his wife dance on “America’s Got Talent” tonight on NBC from 9-11 Eastern Time. They’s called Paradiso Dance, and they’re a skinny woman and a fat man, and they’re really good. Then call in and vote for them, please.

Hey, hey–teething! Apparently there are a lot of kids dealing with molars coming in, and a lot of parents not dealing with it so well.

To recap all the major symptoms of teething (molars or not):
Drool stool (shards of drool in the poop)
Cough from drool running down the back of the throat
Runny nose (clear) from the drool
Rash around the mouth from drool
Rash around the anus from the changed acidity of the poop from the drool
Stinky acidic poop
Problems falling asleep and staying asleep
Sudden shooting pains
Flash fevers that spike and then go away
Constant low-grade fever
Wanting to chew things
Sticking fingers in their mouths
Drinking more milk
Not wanting to eat or drink at all
Pulling on the ears

…and I’ve probably forgotten some.

If your child has none of these, and just sails through teething, that’s normal. But it’s also normal for your child to be a big mess of symptoms for teething, too.

In some ways, the molars are slightly easier because at least your child kind of understands that the pain is from teeth. But they can take so long to come in that the pain almost becomes constant and your kid can get worn out just from dealing with it. If you feel comfortable giving pain relievers, give them so your child can get a little rest from the pain.

Were there any things that have helped your kids get their molars in? Mine liked to gnaw on the handles of wooden spoons–they could shove them back there but the spoons wouldn’t get lost or accidentally be swallowed. The homeopathic remedies that helped so much when they were babies (Hyland’s teething tablets or Humphrey’s #3 formula) didn’t seem to touch the molar irritability.

What did your kids like? What helped them?

  1. Our guy didn’t have all that rough a time teething (I know we were just lucky), but the 2 year molars were the worst. When he was (otherwise) inexplicably cranky and fussy, the only thing that seemed to help was children’s tylenol. I think we probably gave it to him four or five times during the whole time he was teething (not just the molars), so I didn’t feel like we were overdoing it.

  2. My 15 month old is working on FOUR(!) new teeth right now – two lower canines (tips have broken through) and two upper molars. I’ll be reading with desperate interest today. He got his first tooth at 4 months, and 9 months later he had 10.I may actually have to resort to cycling medicines – both tylenol and ibuprofen. His MD says that because they are metabolized differently (one through the liver, the other through the kidneys) I can give one every three hours and avoid the 20 minute shriek-fest that happens when pain meds wear off. So far it hasn’t quite gotten that bad. I’d rather not give him medicine, but there were a few weeks there when he got iboprofen every 6 hours around the clock.
    For my DS, top teeth are more grief than the bottom. Frozen blueberry waffles used to work while we were waiting for pain medication to take effect. But now he won’t take it. At night I put the homeopathic tabs in his water. During the day he likes to nibble on them.
    One thing I’ve noticed is that he suddenly hates the texture of meat. Not sure if this is teething or just a developmental thing. If anyone has any thoughts I’d love to hear them.
    Hopefully I’ll pick up some good ideas today.

  3. T has always hated the texture of meat. 23 months and counting and he still won’t eat meat or fish – won’t even eat soy based fake meat because the texture is too similar. Kids really are individuals from the get go.He’s drooling some lately and cranky-ish but he’s also discovered his spit and blowing spit bubbles so I’m not sure how much of it is teething related and how much is just him being two. Haven’t seen any new teeth breaking through back there yet. I have in the past and will use pain relievers like tylenol or motrin. I love the wooden spoon handle – great idea.

  4. How long does it typically take for teeth to break thru? My 4 mo. old daughter has had many of those symptoms for over a month, but I don’t see any teeth yet.

  5. A real carrot (not a baby carrot) that is firm and peeled makes a nice teething toy (in the high chair, under close adult supervision, yadda yadda). It could be refrigerated to a nice chill.

  6. I have no idea how many are coming through my 11-month old’s gums but I have never seen her this consistently unhappy. Not even when she had colic. I miss my happy girl. Motrin helps for about 2 hours, but I have only been giving it to her at night. She has been waking up 2 hours after bedtime every night and fussing for the next FIVE hours. She has all her eyeteeth already.The good news is, I barely remember weathering this phase with my 3 year old, who was done teething by 18 months. I have a vague feeling that it sucked.

  7. @olivia, especially for the early teethers, it can take MONTHS. Mine started at 3 months, and didn’t cut teeth until 5 or 5+ months. ARGH. But the symptoms can be just from the tooth movement. FWIW, the later teeth came through faster, but those early ones took for.ever. Vibrating teethers worked for my kids for those front teeth.I don’t recall much helping my kids on the molars other than reaching my finger in and rubbing the gums (forward/back, until the gum squeaked, pretty much), and motrin/advil/tylenol. My mom did whole carrots with me (old enough to not choke on the bits). Oh, yeah, we did try the safe feeders (mesh bag on a handle) on the molars, too. That helped somewhat (the biter biscuits inside the mesh bag were gross but very very popular… I can still smell those things just from thinking about them… the organic ones smelled way better, by the way). I’ve heard good things about sliced fruit frozen and put in the feeder for molar teething, but we never tried it – did do plain ice cubes now and then, though, just for fun on hot days.

  8. I totally sympathize with those having serious teething trouble. Our DS had SO much difficulty teething (diarrhea, rash, fever, pain etc etc) and was pretty much teething non-stop from 3 months until his 2-year molars came in just around 18 months. And it took months, as hedra mentioned.We used a lot of tylenol for the non-molars, but molars (and I think “eye teeth” or canines) didn’t respond to that so we had to resort to ibuprofen. I felt so bad using it all the time, but he was really suffering.
    We also did teething tabs (Hylands) and a big favorite was frozen wild blueberries, available in 3-pound bags at BJ’s wholesale club. Yes, we went through a bag a month just giving them to DS. He also liked pureed frozen fruit or granita. We did a lot of supposedly unsafe stuff like the blueberries, but we were right with him all the time anyway b/c he was so miserable constantly.
    Has anyone tried those natural rubber molar teethers? they look like a 2-pronged paci with nubblies on both business ends? Worth the $$?

  9. the pnut and now the bean both liked to chew on a rubber coated toothbrush (toddler sized w/ the enormous handle) as well as that sassy mesh bag thing you can stick ice or froz fruit into…the bean is teething molars right now..god help us…

  10. Motrin, nursing, and ice chips were about all that helped poor Mouse, who was a late, long, and in big bunches teether. She’d be ok during the day, but simply could not sleep. I contemplated, but never did, embroidering a sampler that said “This Tooth Shall Pass”…maybe that would be comforting to someone who’s actually good at needlework.I weaned between her canines and second molars (she didn’t get the second molars until she was 2 1/2) and expect all holy hell when those last ones came, but whether it was age or just the teeth, it was better than the earlier sets. For reference, first 5 teeth between 11 and 12 months, the rest of the front teeth by 18 months, first molars right around 18, and the eye teeth around 21-22, right when she was in the middle of a bunch of nasty winter illnesses. Ah, good times.

  11. OH & we did baby acidophilus (onMoxie’s suggestion) for all the GI troubles (thanks Moxie!), lanolin or breast milk on rashes both above and below. DS also slept better sitting up (the theory is that the throbbing is less if the inflamed area is elevated above the heart)–so the swings were life-savers. Also helped w the chronic congestion. And he nursed around the clock periodically which lead to lots more overflow but less pain for him.Sorry for multi-posting–the bad memories are slowly resurfacing. . . ha. . .but good to rehash as #2 is 4 weeks and seems to be teething already. sigh.

  12. I swear my son has been working on these molars for ever. But the ear pulling – now it makes sense! Every so often I’ll see him doing it, but he’s never had an ear infection. He’ll ramp up on chewing on his fingers, drooling, but it’s very on/off. He also loves chewing on his play kitchen utensils, wooden ones, they are the perfect size. I seriously don’t think he’s in pain, though, and I haven’t given him Tylenol or ibuprofen in ages.

  13. Two-year-old is getting molars and ten-month-old is getting more incisors. Between the two of them we have pretty much every symptom on the list. I ‘ve been giving a little pain reliever before bed and letting them chew like crazy during the day. Still we were up at 2:00, 4:00 and 5:30 last night with kids who could not sleep. I sometimes think these molars are never going come in.

  14. Glad I’m not the only one having these troubles, 16 mo who has been working on getting her canines for 3 weeks. She actually grabbed the Motrin bottle off the table while I was changing her diaper this morning and refused to let go until I gave her some. Going to be investing in a locking tool box today…Other things that work for us – frozen blueberries and peas to gnaw on (it’s hard for regular teethers to work in to the space between the front teeth and molars), yogurt and ice cream, and at the end of the day, lovely California Baby bubble baths and blowing lots of bubbles. She usually ends up chewing on the bubble wand too, that seems to be about the right size and texture.

  15. I feel like worst-mother-of-the-year candidate, as it just now occurred to me my son’s almost constant grumpiness and inability to sleep over the past two weeks might be due to his two year molars. I asked to look in his mouth … OUCH! Three of them, poking their way through at once. Poor guy. Sometimes I’m amazed at how these posts come just at the right time.

  16. LJP, talk about worst mother–I can’t even remember how or when my girls got their molars. Oops. Missed that one.

  17. Rudyinparis, me too! My kid was a horrible teether, but the only sign I recall of her molars was the day she leaned back in the baby swing and laughed, whereupon I noticed some gleaming new teeth in the back of her mouth.

  18. @michaela & rudyinparis — I completely missed teeth in my first, too! She didn’t seem to have any trouble and since they came really early, I wasn’t even looking for them until they were just, magically, there!#2 is a different story. @olivia, he has been teething since about 5 weeks and now at 10.5 months only has the front four. The first bottom two popped somewhere at the end of month 5.
    We do frozen wet washcloths, frozen whole wheat mini bagels (they thaw pretty fast though) and ice cubes of chunky pureed baby food in the mesh feeder.
    Also vibrating teethers, BUT, you can imagine my surprise when I found the 2.5 y/o, um, ‘sitting’ on her baby brother’s vibrating teether. At least the thing is versatile!

  19. mrshaley- that was our biggest joke here for pnuts vibrating teether- oh my god that gave us some much needed joy during the horrors of teething…i will join you as a crappy mama in that it wasn’t til she had a new tooth that i would say “oh, so that’s why she was such a miserable little ___” at least with the bean i am slightly more atune to it. slightly- the dr told me last week he’s getting molars- i had no idea.
    he also likes to chew on a wooden drumstick (that you hit a drum with, not chicken leg) for the same reason that a pp mentioned, he can get it way back there and gnaw away.
    poor thing has had this horrible pitted diaper rash for weeks- we use combos of zinc cream, aquaphor, bacitracin, generic lotrimin af, you name it- it gets better then worse, and the ped says it’s all normal. i wish there was a quick fix for it!!

  20. This is a timely topic for me, even though we are not too the molars yet. At his well-visit, we were convinced he must have an ear infection only to discover our little guy is working on the four top incisors (he got the bottom two about a couple months ago). He has most of the teething symptoms, and lately it has been really messing up his sleep (and mine too). I started to cry around 4am last night because I am just so darn tired of being tired. We just had the 9 month sleep regression, he was messed up from being out of town, and now this. I don’t know if I have slept even 4 hours straight in the last month because the occasional night he does sleep well my sleep is still a complete wreck.And with no intention of hijacking this topic, for all you veteran at dealing with kids that are bothered by teething…I find myself always debating when to give him pain relievers and when to not. I’m worried about giving it too much, so I usually only give it once a night at the beginning of the night and no more than 3 days in a row. I first started with Little Teethers tablets since they seemed “safer,” but they also didn’t seem consistently effective. I also keep second guessing if Motrin or Tylenol is better. I have tried to research it, and saw some of their differences. I get the impression Tylenol is usually considered safest, but every mom I know always recommended Motrin (so I tried this, haven’t tried Tylenol yet). I noticed you should not give Tylenol more than 5 days straight, but it says you can give Motrin no more than 10 days straight (not that I would want to give it that many nights straight, but I wondered why). Tylenol is good for 4-6 hours, while Motrin is supposed to be 6-8. Motrin seems better in those regards, but why are some people more concerned about Motrin then? I’m just confused. I’m a person that hates taking medicine unless I really need it, I rarely even take it for headaches myself unless it is really bad.
    Sometimes pain relievers help him sleep a lot better, but every now and then they don’t. I wish it was more clear when to do what to help him feel better and give us as a chance to get the most rest possible.

  21. Both my boys got an ear infection with every tooth. My younger is getting his last molar at 2 years, 11 months. I like to say that teething is the first nasty little secret of parenthood. Lots of chewing, tylenol and distraction.

  22. @Prism – I’ve given both Tylenol and Motrin. I’ve given both Tylenol and Motrin during the same evening layered a few hours apart. It works. However, the second dr. in the pediatric office read me the riot act the last time I brought him in for giving him ibuprofen. DS had strep throat (I heard kids didn’t get strep until 3 – wrong about that) at the time and had spiked a really high fever and I gave him motrin b/c that’s what I happened to have and when I told the dr he really went off about how bad it was, the fever was better for him than ibuprofen, etc. Now the other dr in the same practice told me about layering the two. Don’t know. But his fever dropped and it did help with the pain from what was a really bad case of strep throat.

  23. You can count another worst-mother-of-the-year candidate here. I’m always amazed why it takes me so long to remember that it could be teething. Though I’m slowly getting better at remembering in my dead-tired sleepless fog at 2am that the reason DS wakes up screaming in the middle of the night is usually teething pain. Perhaps make that always teething pain. At least to date.We’re just starting to remember that when DS has a night of waking every hour (or less) that it’s probably teething pain and the worst will subside after a day or two.
    On those nights we mostly have success with Tempra. But in the last round or two of intense teething pain it didn’t always work. Gotta remember to try Motrin.
    I have no idea which teeth DS is working on now. I try to get a peak when he’s laughing with his head thrown back as he’s not keen on me sticking my finger in lately. Suspect it’s the eye teeth, but not sure. Maybe it’s the first molars.
    @Prism: I’ve generally fallen into the practice of giving Tempra after DS has woken 3 times in 3 hours or less. Or if he can’t be consoled back to sleep. (He usually goes down to sleep pretty easily and at least sleeps for 2-3 hour stretches, so that’s how I differentiate.) So that’s what I do on the first night (as I’m not always sure it’s teething before then). Once I know he’s teething if he’s ultra cranky to go to sleep, I’ll give him Tempra before going to bed and then will repeat the dose in the middle of the night only if he is really upset or has a lot of difficulty falling back to sleep. The worst usually subsides by day 2-3, so don’t need to worry about the 5 day Tempra limit.
    Also, our family doctor said that the 5 day limit is on there so that you go to see the doctor just in case it’s something else. But I gave DS Tempra for 10 days, with check-ins (in person) with the doc, (off and on as needed) when his fever wouldn’t break during an ear inflammation turned infection.

  24. Regarding the alternating Motrin and Tylenol because of how they’re metabolized in the body…I was told this by an on-call nurse, only to have another nurse read me the riot act and tell me to stick to just one. (I still alternate though, if my kids are in a lot of pain.)Personally, acetaminophen works about as well on me as water, so I assume it could be the same for kids. For something involving pain, like teething or an ear infection, I’ll use either. If it’s just a fever with no pain, I’m more likely to let the fever do its job (unless they’re really uncomfortable).
    My 4-month-old DD has been teething since about 6 weeks old, and her bottom 2 incisors just broke through a week or so ago. My sister’s dentist told her that no adult would be able to stand the pain of teeth breaking through, so she shouldn’t shy away from offering pain relief.
    Good times!

  25. @Elaine and mom2boys – E hated meat, too until we took pedi’s advice and gave him crispy bacon. Instant success (and why wouldn’t it be – bacon is delicious!) and then we tried crock pot meat. Loved it. Now he eats any/all meat and isn’t picky about texture at all.As far as teething goes…I’ve said this a million times. It is my biggest argument against “intelligent” design, not that there aren’t a million. And if I ever get to stand in front of the gates to heaven (right now, I’m thinking it could go either way – E’s been pulling the cat’s tail and I have not been handling it well) I am going to look the Divine Being right in the face and and ask them, “Teething?!? Really? WTF were you thinking? Asshole.”

  26. Re: Motrin vs. Tylenol. I heard this from a nurse practitioner friend but have not verified: she believes Motrin messes with the tummy/stomach/digestion. She has seen a number of cases come into the office with Motrin-related stomach problems.

  27. @KatieV – I can personally vouch for the wisdom of the warning on the package labels that over-use of Motrin & other NSAID’s (Ibuprofen) can cause painful issues with ulceration of the lining of your stomach or intestine. (Worst pain of my frickin’ life!!!) But then again, everyone’s body processes drugs differently, so YMMV. That said, because of my bad history with it, when DS had a fever we used Ibuprofen in moderation – switching every other dose with Acetaminophen, and only for 48 hours. Everyone is different, and every healthcare professional’s ass-vice seems to be different, too. Always good to ask yourself, “When they’re make this claim that ‘OMG!! X is so BAD,’ to what recent study are they referring?” 😉 Answer: usually the one they just pulled from their arse!

  28. M’s working on his last 2 top molars (thank the Lord!). When he cut his last 2 bottoms he just wanted to stay up all night and nurse ALL.THE.TIME. I like being able to nurse him for comfort but at the same time I have found myself resenting being at the beck and call of a toddler…(but that’s a whole different issue). 🙂

  29. E’s been working on her bottom molars for nearly a month now. In addition to the above symptoms, we’ve got clingy, never put me down syndrome. She just wants to be held and distracted all day. I’ve found just getting her out of the house, to a busy place, the mall, whatever for a few hours to distract and wear to out works even better than tylenol. Though I’m just as tired as we’re running around all the time.

  30. Apologies for the science heavy nature of what follows, but…. I got curious about the ibuprofen + acetaminophin issue and did a quick search. I did find an ongoing study into this practice in children:http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00267293
    Looks like they are looking at efficacy, not safety. Usually that means safety has already been shown, but I have no direct info on that. I can find lots of things indicating that it is safe to do in adults, but no studies on kids.
    In general, NSAIDs like ibuprofen will do a better job at controlling pain that is caused by inflammation, because they are anti-inflammatories. (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, to be precise!) That implies to me that ibuprofen might be more successful in teething pain, since I’d guess some of the pain is due to inflamed gums. But that is a complete guess on my part.
    However, as @hush points out, NSAIDs can do a number on your stomach. The over-the-coutner ones also inhibit an enzyme that protects your stomach from injury. (Boring aside- drugs like VIOXX were developed to be more specific and not inhibit the stomach enzyme. They succeeded there, but famously ran into other problems…)
    Acetaminophen doesn’t act in the same way at all. It is not an anti-inflammatory, and last I heard, no one was really sure how it controls pain and fever. At standard doses, it is very safe, but an overdose of acetaminophen is quite serious, due to liver damage.
    And, not that you’re going to do this to your teething toddler, but… combining either drug with alcohol isn’t a very good idea. It increases the risk of stomach damage from NSAIDs and the risk of liver damage from acetaminophen.
    As to the original question on handling teething- we lucked out in this area. Teething never bothered Pumpkin too much. We tend to give acetaminophen for pain/fever because Pumpkin seemed to have a touchier tummy than other babies. I just keep it far out of her reach. It is one bottle that NEVER goes on her changing table. It is always put back away or left up on top of her bookshelves, out of her reach.

  31. I haven’t seen a mention of orajel yet, which is one tool in my teething toolbox. I find that no one tool works all the time, and my son teeths hard enough that I have to have several at my disposal (tylenol, motrin, nursing, frozen peas, Sophie rubber doll, apple slices, etc etc). I’ve found that if I can manage to wipe his gum with gauze before applying the orajel — a trick I got from someone on this site, perhaps Moxie herself — it makes a huge difference.

  32. I just watched 20 minutes of America Has Talent (I cannot bring myself to use the actual title). Anyway, your friend’s brother and his wife were good. And they got GREAT reviews from all 3 judges. I’ll be in bed before voting begins and I’ve never sent a text message, so I’m with them in spirit if not in action.

  33. My son is definitely getting his molars. He’s almost 2.5, so a bit late. He’s been sleeping very lightly for about the past month, on and off grumpy, and will sometimes complain that there’s something ‘sharp’ in his mouth. He’s been eating a lot of orange juice popsicles lately, but I haven’t given any pain meds. The most frustrating thing is that aside from the occasional ‘sharp! sharp!’ and pointing to his jaw, when I ask ‘does your mouth hurt?’, or ‘show me where it hurts’, he never complies. It’s odd because with other ailments he’s quick to show me. I wonder if the pain is just too vague for him?

  34. I have been told by my doctor, my sister who is a nurse and the pharmacist that it’s OK to give both Tylenol and Motrin (alternating). But I’ve only done that once or twice because it’s usually not necessary.I personally give one or the other if I think one of my kiddos is in pain – my feeling is why would I want them to be miserable if they don’t need to be? I don’t wait until things are really bad. I also wanted an epidural for the same reason!
    I have been told not to give Motrin to children under 6 months (hasn’t been thoroughly tested) so I stick with Tylenol until then.

  35. For my 4 month old, we have been using the Tylenol, orajel that you can put in the fridge, a cold carrot, a cold washcloth AND (something I didn’t see yet) a cold pacifier. that puppy works wonders and since we started that we have not needed to do as much medicine. a cold one is always in the refrigerator while one is with her.

  36. Love Blythe’s photos! At least you know what he’s thinking with those faces… a combination of discomfort and “boy, that feels weird…”So I have a sidetrack – does anyone else have an issue with dirt-eating while teething? She loves to stick handfuls of sand/dirt in her mouth and crunch crunch crunch. I would normally chalk it up to toddler exploration but it’s been going on for quite a while now. Is it just coincidence or is this one of her ways of coping with the discomfort?

  37. My son is 26 months and his molars have been moving around forever. As with his other teeth, I was sure they were breaking through, but no sign of that yet. Of course, it is a lot harder to check inside his mouth these days.His symptoms are: chewing on his fingers, difficulty sleeping, more nursing, crankiness, pulling on ears, biting the shoulder of my shirts (and sometimes the skin of my shoulder). He hasn’t done so much drooling this time around as he did when he was a baby.
    I have been giving mostly tylenol, which seems to help him sleep at least. The nurse at my ped’s office suggested ibuprofen for teething bc of it addressing inflammation. She said that since he was over 2 it was ok.
    I have done the tylenol/ ibuprofen laddering when he had a fever/ear infection.

  38. I just want to say thank you for this post. It took a while to sink in, but Baby E is teething and he’s been coughing!!The doctor upped his Rx of Zantac, but now I’m wondering if he even needs it…..

  39. My 19 month old is cutting her last set of molars. She is chewing on her clothes, hands, toys, and her gums are tender and soft. She is not crying with them so far, but she keeps waking up coughing in the middle of the night. She doesn’t cough during the day at all. I give her tylenol and put the vick’s vaporizer on before she goes to bed, but she still wakes up coughing around 2 or 3am. Any suggestions to help her sleep through the night?

  40. Michelle, I’m in the same boat. My 22-month-old is cutting the 2nd bottom molar and is waking up almost every hour to nurse. Now I know why sleep deprivation is an implement of torture. So no advice from me, but I’m going to keep searching on Ask Moxie…

  41. How do you know when your child is teething? First, he or she is somewhere between three months and a year old and doesn’t yet have teeth, right? Some signs of teething are obvious; drooling, wakefulness, crankiness, crying, biting, chewing and tender gums are a few. Other signs of cutting teeth may be a little less obvious: she refuses food or may not be drinking milk; she may have a rash around the mouth; saliva irritates the delicate skin. There may be a runny nose, the mechanics of which escape me, but if you’ve ever eaten a hot chili, you know that your mouth floods with saliva, your eyes tear up and your nose starts to run.

  42. Teething gums look pretty much like you’d expect them to: they may be swollen and red or even bruised. There may be little white dots on them, or you may see small openings where in a day or two will be a tooth. Because the baby is drooling and swallowing more drool than you ever thought possible, you may notice loose stools in the diaper. Loose bowel movements may be a part of teething, but if there’s anything more than an extra-poopy diaper, if there is fever, mucous or blood in the stools, or if the diarrhea is violent, you should take your baby to the doctor for help because the diarrhea probably isn’t related to teething. And if your child is experiencing even the mild diarrhea associated with teething, there may be diaper rash, too. And you thought this couldn’t be more fun!

  43. The most recent study, published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology in May 2008, investigated the acceptability and usefulness of intrapulmonary THC administration using a Volcano Vaporizer and pure THC instead of cannabis. Rising doses of THC(2, 4, 6 and 8 mg) were administered with 90 minutes intervals to twelve healthy males. Very low between-subject variability was observed in THC plasma concentrations, characterising the vaporizer as a suitable method for the administration of THC.

  44. My son is getting 2 molars and an incisor right now … I noticed an area on his gums that is almost fluid filled (not where the teeth are coming through … in a different location) and it has a bruised looking spot in the middle of it. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this with a molar coming in? Is this something to be worried about or will the tooth just come in on its own time?

  45. Hi there, I know this is an older discussion but just in case, I thought I might ask – did any of your little ones have swollen faces while cutting their molars? My little guy has all the teething symptoms AND his left cheek is kind of swollen…This isn’t my first time “at the rodeo” so to speak – I have a fifteen year old – but teething really never bothered him – whether he just had a higher tolerance level or handled it like a champ – I don’t know but our youngest guy has always been so affected by teething – running low grade fever, throwing up, refusing food and wanting to nurse CONSTANTLY! I’m just curious if the face swelling is anything anyone else has experienced? Any responses are enthusiastically welcome! Thanks!

  46. Tiredness – what an awesome analogy for the stuffy nose explanation! Thank you!Our son is 31 months old & he has been teething hard since he was 3.5 months old. His cheeks would radiate bright red & the skin would dry out & he’d get the stuffy nose & cough. Those are his main symptoms now with the last two molars. It’s been hell for the poor little guy. I even took him to a dentist in April just to make sure everything was okay. Everything was & he said that my little guy just has really thick gums.
    Good luck everyone – can’t wait for this to finish.

  47. Forgot to add something…..I found a homeopathic remedy that worked AWESOME for teething pain & gassiness. It’s called Viburcol. My son was never a colicky baby but because of teething & his stuffy nose & being a finger-sucker, he did swallow quite a bit of air some nights. This stuff worked amazing.

  48. We stumbled on the house by chance, out photographing Buffalo Presbyterian Church and the Billy “Crash” Craddock Bridge. If you are from elsewhere, you might not know that the 16th Street Bridge was recently rebuilt and renamed a few years ago for the country rockabilly singer who was born, nearby, in Greensboro.

Roku rolls out new platforms but hasn’t tackled the key question of selling more boxes. You need one for each TV. Why not discount multiple orders for people with more than one TV?

Do the people in office A ever talk to the people in office B

  53. I used to work for Vulcan Materials and their home office is BHM. Traveled there quite a bit for business ate out alot. Now the company I work for is based out of Indy, good food too but I do love the Southern cooking!
