I am SO thankful that our little ones do not remember the pain and frustration (on both parts) that comes with teething. Mr. Man has his two lower teeth, but we are currently working on one of his front top teeth. It is swollen. It is purplish-reddish. It is ALMOST there…pointy and looking downright uncomfortable and painful.
We need them…but the process of getting them is no walk in the park. And, we still have 47 to go with J….okay, I know it’s not that much, but seriously, it feels like it.
Last night was a rough one. Lots of pain. Lots of tears. Lots of mama snuggle time (from 1:15 to 2:15ish a.m.).
Oh, and you know how “they” (the doctor-folk) who “say” that there are no side-effects with teething? I say that’s bull. Like clockwork, if J has some rumbling, he becomes a snotty mess with a fever. This results in my poor coworkers seeing me with crusty shoulders because does J let me wipe his nose? NOPE…mama’s shoulder works MUCH better than any hanky would.
Did your babes have any side effects? What are your tried and true teething relief methods? We rock the Tylenol, Hyland’s Teething Tablets, frozen things…and last night he was gnawing on a carrot.
