Monster Baby

I am going to jump on Abbasaur's teething bandwagon. I hope you don't mind.

We have had an awful few weeks. Whining, crying, refusing feedings (bottles and solids), clinging, not sleeping, you name it. Seriously, I wasn't sure we were going to make it through. We were doing regular doses of Tylenol, Hylands gel or pellets (depending on how much time we have - the pellets seem to work better for him, but I don't always have the time to disolve and apply them) and pretty much anything else we could think of. I'm telling you, it was bad.

And then, a tooth arrived. And within a few days after that, one more. And there are at least two more on the brink. Poor little man. No wonder he's been so miserable. I just wish I had better ideas about how to help him for future bouts with the teething monster. He's not the slightest bit interested in toys that are intended for teething relief or teething biscuits. I tried giving him ice (and other frozen things) in one of those mesh feeders. He looks at me like I am insane.

So does anyone out there have any tricks up their sleeves that I haven't thought of? I'd really like to be prepared for the next time.

  1. Aww... Poor little man....
    All the websites I desperately searched said the same thing: tylenol or panadol, teething rings, those mesh things...

    Hope those next two come down with little fuss. hugs to both of you.
