Teeth - Page 2
LOL!! Well, yesterday Kaelan bit me (as usual) and, for the first time, I *felt* those two little teeth in there! I could just barely see them right there at the gum, but never feel them, so I kept doubting myself about seeing them. But yeah, they're coming in. <sigh> Really sad about the idea he will be losing that gorgeous gummy smile but holy freakin cute! how sweet are two little baby teeth, eh? As Junis shows us so beautifully! ;-)
Has anyone tried teething necklaces and/or Chamomilia for their baby's teeth if they're fussy? I have a necklace she keeps on, it actually cured her baby acne I think and helps her not get so inflamed when my allergies flare up. My sister LOVED the chamomilia for her daughter, so I have some on hand. I have heard mostly negative about the Highland tabs, so I didn't bother getting those. I keep some teethers in the fridge, and there's always a frozen washcloth or an ice cube to stick in a Munchie thing, or whatever that mesh deal is called. Most of the girls I know are worse teethers than boys, so just trying to plan ahead. Lol
I don't know about the necklace. my kids all had them anyway. I think my mom said that she read an article recently about some scientific proof of how they actually worked. have to ask her about tht again.
the chamomilla works like a charm for us, we use it a lot, whenever they have pain or are restless. we also have a homeopathic combination remedy called osanit here in germany. it's especially made for teething pains and chamomilla is the main ingredient in that one too.
Kateaton, do you have a baltic amber? I've heard those are *supposed* to be better? That's what she has, but like I said, not sure if it'll work or not yet. Lol
Franjapany, I think there was some data on the Inspired by Finn site, but I always wonder about the accuracy of studies done by the company themselves, KWIM? If you think to ask your Mom, I'd love to hear what she says. :)
Glad to hear the chamomilia works for you! I have stuck a couple in her mouth before when she's extremely cranky. Not sure it works, but it distracts her at least. Lol
yes, it's baltic amber. I made sure that I was buying the real deal as I'd heard about fakes out there.
Oooo! She's got nothing like that yet. She had a white bump on her bottom right gum, where a tooth would pop through, when she was born. When she was maybe 4 months, I forget, I noticed something bright white there. I thought it was lint because it came off. BUT it was apparently whatever that thing was because it was gone. Almost like a zit type thing. Weird. That's all the activity beside being a chew monkey!
K's the one born the same day as Ana was! I knew someone was but couldn't remember who! :)
MrsKoehn- My DS1 didn't get teeth until 9 months so I was surprised to see E had them at 6 months! I think the longer they wait, the better actually. DS1 never really bit while nursing but E does it, maybe because he's a lot younger. Also, is anyone else scared when your LO eats a chunk of food too big for them? I am because I have to stick my finger into Everett's mouth to get it out and his first instinct is to bite me! Those 2 tiny teeth are shockingly sharp and strong! Waiting until 9 months was easier :)
Though those little white teeth peaking out when E gives me a giant smile, that's awfully cute :)
It does bother me when she's got too much in her mouth. I don't normally pull it out though. I do have to fish out skins from fruit and paper sometimes though. She gets mad and clamps her jaws when I try to get the food stuff, paper she laughs because she knows she's not supposed to eat it. Lol
My son is now cutting his second set of teeth, the two top ones, the bottom ones came in a few months back. Other than tylenol and orajel which we don't like to use but do rarely since it always knocks him out or wears off quickly. We also use cold (fridge not freezer) chew rings and home made fruit/yogurt puree popsicles.
Any other recommendations that might work?
I'm skeptical of amber as I am a jeweler and have purchased and used amber - it's often misleadingly sold as real when often resin. It's often overpriced also. Also I don't want to have my son next to something I am not sure ot it's origin or if it actually helps.
I don't know how much the Amber works, but it helped her baby acne as a little bitty thing so there is something to it.
Chamomillia tabs work great for her. So does an organic gripe water I have. Together they are a big help.
I freeze, then slightly thaw some iPlay tethers and the cheap pack of Safety First pacis that are shaped like a bad latch can suck up water. I mostly fill then freeze. Frozen grape halves are good. Frozen banana spears in a Munchie thing is good too. Lots of nursing and holding in the sling. Patience. One day we'll be talking about the first loose teeth!
