    Default Ibuprofen

    Anyone happen to know if baby and mom can take ibuprofen at the same time? We gave DD some about an hour ago for her gums and I've got a splitting headache but don't want to risk overloading her. TIA!

    I seriously doubt you would BUT BUT BUT Can you take something else ?

    Also - you can call her pedi and they "SHOULD" be able to answer this for you...

    Thanks - I decided just to suffer through. I am not a fan of taking stuff usually anyway and I didn't want to take the chance. I do need to call the ped. though, cause DD has been non-stop teething for days and I think another one is coming in now and I don't want to overdo the Motrin. But DD seems just miserable.

    Have you tried the teething tablets? They worked way better than Tylenol or anything else for Nolan. The only thing Tylenol would do was put him to sleep. Our ped actually says she thinks the tablets do more...

    Yeah. I thought it was just a bunch of BS, then we were at our wits end one day, I went to the store and bought them, we put them in his mouth and seriously 5 minutes later he was playing and cooing...I wouldn't have believed it unless it happened to me!!!

    we love highlands! and if you choose to go the med route you can alternate (with pedi approval and guidelines) tylenol and motrin... but I am bigger fan of tylenol...

    for teething I do love the tablets though
