My 9month old daughter eats alot of formula as well as plenty of jar food. She even drinks apple jouice but at night, she has a hard time falling alseep cause she is starting to teeth and i was wondering could i give her a 3oz bottle of warm to help her fall asleep instead of giving her medicine?

are you talking about regular milk or formula milk? ive been giving my ds milk milk starting at 9 months but i do formula still also. i dont think it will hurt her unless she was one that had tummy problems but if she is teething than its probly not going to help her and the tylonal/motren and teething tablets/orajel will sooth her more bc she is restless from pain and disconfort and warm milk can sooth her when she is trying to fall asleep in a normal situation but its not going to help with the pain.

I agree with PP, if your DD has teething pain the warm milk won't really help. I would use Tylenol/Motrin.

I have started giving DD regular milk once a day so her system gets used to it for when we stop formula in 2 months. I don't plan on giving any juice until she's 2 years old (recommended by our pediatrician). I did the same thing with DS no juice till after 2.

My 10 month old is teething.. he has been since he turned 6 months. I don't like to give him tylenol all of the time so I found these teething tablets that work great! They are homeopathic teething tablets made by Hyland's. They have no side effects and are 100% natural. I have found that they actually work better for my LO than the tylenol did. Give them a try!
