Poor Baby

Teething's a 61T(H

That's the best way I know how to put it. Jayden sure does take it like a champ, but I know he's hurting. He wakes up at least 3 times a night, which isn't like him at all. He chews his hand like he hasn't been feed in days and he's getting more and more fussy everyday. I know, my standards of fussiness are not like most mom's. When people hear me say it, they look at me like I'm from another planet and tell me "Girl, this is not fussy."

Well, if all you've ever had is a quite baby, one that is content with sitting around all day and just looking at things, you don't know any different. I've been blessed! I've never had a child that cries more then just a little here and there. I can usually figure out what is wrong, without him crying for a long period of time. Three things... hungry, tired, or just wants to be held. That's all he needs! He still is content doing that stuff, but he is more agitated. So, to me... that's fussy, he's not himself. Tylenol usually helps, but I don't want to give it to him so much that he gets immune to it.

I might just go to Walmart and see if they have teething gel. Or I read that you can make these small 100% juice ice cubes and they can suck on them. (With parent supervision, of course) That might work, who knows... I'm new at all this!

Hey Lyryn, I completely understand! You could try some of the stuff I gave Ella all the time. It was the only thing that worked. It's called Chamomilia. I think it's by Boiron or something. You could get it at any whole foods store. It's just herbal stuff, mostly Chammomile to calm them, but it worked so well for Ella. I tried the baby Orajel and everything with her...that only works for like 5 minutes then wears off and you can't give it again for hours. Also, something you could try at home...Wet a corner of a clean washcloth then put it in the freezer until it's solid, then let them chew/suck on it. Works like a charm! :-)
