I am still having teething issues. The little one's two little bottom teeth have both popped through, one just days behind the other. The problem is that most of the pain seems to come with the night, making bed time and sleep difficult. I have been looking for things to try to help soothe Stella and am not entirely convinced that baby Tylenol and Orajel are doing the trick. I have yet to find and try teething tablets but know that there is a certain ingredient in them that I want to avoid. The problem with that is I can't remember what the ingredient is so until I Google search, I can't do anything anyway.
With all the teethers, nets, and devices we have for Stella to gnaw on it appears that my shoulder and Blackberry are her favorite to chew on. I also heard a frozen washcloth may serve the purpose and am willing to give ANYTHING a try.
The nighttime update still has Stella sleeping in bed with me and nursing her back to sleep in the wee hours of the morning. My poor hubby is still sleeping on the floor in my parents extra bedroom and no doubt getting more sleep than the rest of us. I am struggling with doing what is best for my piece of mind and risking the threat of this sleep with mom pattern that we have gotten into.
I wonder if the first two teeth are the worst and then my usually happy baby will return for the rest of them or if this will continue for months. I guess only time will tell along with the beaver-like marks I now have on my left shoulder. The good news is grandma gets a try at it tomorrow while we take off to the local mountains for a day of skiing in powder. Yipeee with a touch of guilt mixed in! :)
