Teething...is not for the faint at heart

July 30, 2014

Bleh!  Teething is not for the week in this house that's for sure!

We started teething about 2 weeks ago and our little guy decided that 2 teeth needed to come in at the same time.

I feel so bad for him!

We've done some tylenol for the discomfort and recently have tried motrin.  He hasn't been a fan of the cold washcloth or really cold things except the butterfly teether put in the fridge.

We've had several nights of very poor sleep (up every 45-60 min all night) and then we tried motrin.  First night 6 hours straight, second night 7 hours!  Eek!  I can do that :)
He would smile at me and then cry out.  He was trying to hard to be happy!
We got some happy in there last week!
Ribs make excellent teething toys (bonus they taste yummy too!)
Fighting sleep unless right by me.
And he's done!  All snuggled up on the couch and slept for 3 hours that day
Liam has been fairly happy overall but there are moments that he is just beside himself from the discomfort and those moments truly suck!

Here is what's working for us so far:

Sassy Flutterby Teether Developmental Toy
Sassy teether that I got off of Amazon
Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether
Sophie is his favorite!
Package of Teething Tablets
When the pain isn't too bad these work great!

  1. Poor little guy! Brady has been getting his teeth in 4 at a time. He has 9 broke thru and working on 3 others right now (molars, I think). Watch out for the biting!!
