Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Teething

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Teething

It's no surprise that children grow teeth at some point. For some lucky parents, the pearly whites break through without any notice or fuss. For others, the lil chompers are preceded by fevers, sleepless nights, and hours of crying. And often, it's not just one tooth that makes baby miserable. Some tots fight all of them, making their parents cringe every time those precious gums flare up in preparation for the impending arrival. Some folks still use Baby Orajel despite the warnings and others use chamomile or teething tablets to reduce the pain. But for most, it is a period of time that simply must be endured.

Did your child have a tough time teething?

No teeth for my baby girl. At close to 5 months she's started feeling her gums a lot lately and is drooling like crazy. So the teething might not be far away. I just hope she'll be fine *fingers crossed*

My daughter got her first tooth at nearly 4 months old and continued to get the rest fairly quickly. It was screaming and pain and sleeping less then 4 hours a day. I gave her motrin and tylenol.. I was hesitant but I just dont see why i should let her suffer in pain. Once we started that, things got a lot better. Sleep still suffered, and it was still hard, but it wasn't as horrible.
