When your baby is teething, sometimes you can use an ibuprofen to help the swelling of the gums, and that will relieve some of the pain that they are in. I usually give it only at night, after I have tried the tablets, earlier in the day. It has helped my daughter sleep through the night, where she wouldn't have because of the teething.
