My poor baby is in the thick of some major teething troubles. I am pretty sure she is getting the incisors/fangs in. Saturday and Sunday she had been running fevers and barely able to sleep comfortably. Saturday night she was waking up every 20 minutes, screaming in pain. She is hardly eating and that is shocking in itself because she always wants to eat. I've tried everything to ease the pain but nothing seems to help...not even the magical Hyland's Teething Tablets.
Despite it all,she tries to flash us a smile here and there but her mood has been mostly on the cranky side. Really cranky. I don't blame her, I remember getting my wisdom teeth in when Ava was getting in her first year molars and yowza! it hurt bad. Not bad meaning good but bad meaning bad.
When I hear people say that their kids never had teething troubles or even knew that their child had popped a tooth, I can't help but feel a bit jealous. My girls will let you know loud and clear that they are in immense pain and you, too, shall suffer...with a bite. We've had two casualties so far...... Ian's nose and my nipple.(and I'm not breast-feeding!)
She's got seven teeth now, so that makes 13 more of these terrible teething woes to go.
Does anyone know where I can get an suit of armor at?
