      For teething, I use Tylenol and orajel in addition to offering teething toys that can be frozen.
      For colds, I use a combination depending on symptoms. If my child is congested or has a runny nose, I give Benadryl to reduce and dry out any mucus. Keep in mind, Benadryl can cause drowsiness so try to time it so you can give it at bedtime to ensure a sounder sleep. Be sure to elevate your child's mattress under his/her head to reduce coughing from post nasal drip.
      With 4 kids, I've dealt with my fair share of colds, allergies and asthma. If anyone has further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I would love to offer any advice. ( :
