What's everyone else doing for teeth right now? I've tried Hyland's and Boiron homeopathics, amber necklace, and the mainstream staples. Poor sad little baby.
We are in a similar stage.
Honestly...boob seems to be the ONLY thing he has right now that takes the pain away or offers any comfort. As much as it kills me to be up all night nursing, and offering boob every hour during the day...it helps.
We haven't hit Motrin pain yet. Ugh, I'm not looking fwd.
Yesterday just NOTHING made him happy. He was so whiny and fussy and just not himself. Even nursing he wasn't giving him much relief. He'd swallow and then scream. Swallow and then whimper. I tried playing with him on the floor and he was crying. He never cries!! Then it hit me. Where was Sophie?? His Sophie had been MIA for at least a week. I checked all the toy bins, the car, the diaper bag, nothing! And he's crying and crying! Finally - it hit me. I had stuck her on top of the bookshelf when Nora had been squeaking her while Finn was napping.
OMG. I handed him Sophie and she went right to his mouth and he was babbling and talking and happy! He went right in the jumper and was a happy boy again!! A chewing squeaking happy boy!
Thank goodness for Sophie.
