: We went to the doctor yesterday and she said my son's first two teeth will be up in a few days. He seems a little clingy but he got shots yesterday too. My question is, what do I do now. When should I give him tylenol, I've only been giving it before bed. She said maybe give him motrin, because it lasts 6 hours. What can I do to ease any discomfort he has. And how can I tell if he's even uncomfortable. Will I ever get the hang of this Mom stuff?

I always gave my kids Infant's Advil 1/2 hour before the vaccinations because those can make them fussy for about a week along with the teething. Advil lasts up to 8 hours.
