I've been doing some research about this. It just started, drooling, crankiness, chewing on her hand, not sleeping well....and on. The research I've seen said can take a month per tooth is the average answer. Is this expected for another 4-5 months???? My poor daughter! I'm just wondering how long yours took.


What can I do next?

FOREVER! Seriously. I think it took my kids each about 6 months for those four molars to come in.

It was particularly disruptive for my 2nd child - he was already a picky eater, and I think all he ate for most of his second year was pasta and applesauce.

F O R E V E R!!! It has taken way longer than 4-5 months for my poor son who's a little over 2.5 to get them, and his pediatrician says it's normal :-/

Not sure but my son is 18 months and STILL working on his one year molars for at least the last 5 months. They're about HALFWAY in now so it makes me want to cry to think the 2 year ones will be anyday soon now too. I don't think I can handle that much teething!

Forever! My girls seem to both be forever teething. I know it sounds crazy, but have you heard of Amber necklaces for teething pain? It's one of those things that I would have never believed until I tried it on my daughter. My 20 month old loves hers & I swear I see a difference in her mood when she has her necklace on. Google amber teething necklaces. Feel free to send me a private message if you want recommendations on where to buy them. Hang in there!
