Oh my! We're teething for sure now. He was a little before, but wasn't too fussy about it. Now, he's fussy. Didn't sleep well at all last night and he's been sleeping through for a while. We stopped swaddling last week and he woke up once a night when we did that. I'd just go in, turn on his music, give him a paci and rub his belly (change diaper if needed) and he was out again. Last night he woke up every HOUR!! He didn't even do that when he first came home from the hospital! It was awful and a long day at work today. I'm hoping for a better night tonight because I'm so tired.
How is teething going with everyone else? Any LOs with chompers yet??
oh man! That sounds exhausting Honestly I don't know if Bailey is teething, for 3-4 weeks now she has been waking at night 2-3 times but that could be her ear infection. Neither of my boys EVER showed teething signs, the teeth just popped out with them happy as a clam..

Ugh teething can be so rough. Jillian's two bottom teeth are right at the top of the gum but haven't broken through yet. She is constantly chomping her fingers or anything else she can get her gums on.
Have you tried teething tablets? The Hylands brand work pretty well. My Dr also always suggests letting them chomp a cool wet washcloth.
OMG...it's hell... He has been teething like crazy for over a week. His two bottom teeth broke threw last Tuesday and are still on the move. Now his top teeth are starting.
We used to be able to sooth him when he work up by turning on his music and giving him his pacifier. Now he wakes up in so much pain nothing but cuddling and nursing will help calm him down. We have been using Teething Tablets and most night those work. Then other nights the only thing that helps ease his pain is good old infant Tylenol. Those are usually the nights when he wakes up every 30-40 mins.
It just brakes my heart when he wakes up in tears.
I hope tonight is a good night I could use some sleep.
I use tylenol too, but mostly Abby did ok. She was teething forever, drooling like crazy, chewing on anything and everything and finally her two bottom are through. She didn't change sleeping patterns though.
I hope you get some much needed sleep!!
Yes! About 2 weeks ago, Reagan's teeth were *really* bothering her and she was so crabby. The teething tablets seemed to work and sometime Tylenol if she needed it. We can see the 2 bottom teeth right under the gum, but they haven't popped through yet. Then, during the end of last week - her teething symptoms seemed to have disappeared and still no teeth - weird!
We also have a washcloth in the freezer, a vibrating teether (which she doesn't bite down hard enough to vibrate) and another frozen teether that she likes to use...
It is horrible- I have heard people say that for a little baby it feels like a horrible toothache.
teething tablets ?
forgive me ... I am new at this Mommy thing
I got them at Target they are by Hyland's and are 100% natural. I thought it sounded wired but they work great most of the time. You put 2-3 soft little tablets under LO's tongue and they dissolve into nothing. (so no chocking worries) It helps numb the pain and seems to help for far longer then teething gel.
