Its pretty tough being a little guy, and teething does not make life easy these days.
Johannes`s teeth took a while to start coming in, he didn`t cut his first tooth until 8months. But it seems like his teeth have decided its time to play catch up and have a teething-party in my little guy`s mouth. J cut his 7th tooth on Wednesday, we`d had a pretty rough couple of days with him up until that point so I figured we were in for a break now that it was officially out. But the fussyness, whininess, clingyness continued, and today I find 3 more teeth just about ready to make their grand entrance! Seriously! 4 teeth in 1 week is simply not fair.
Unlike 3 or so months ago, J no longer cries uncontrollably due to teething discomfort. Instead he cries a little bit, just enough to get our attention, then turns into a sucky, snuggly, grumpy bear. At night if he`s in discomfort he wants to sleep with us, during the day he wants to be held and picked up, cuddled and hugged. I would be lying if I said I didn`t enjoy the cuddle time, but I wish it wasn`t accompanied by discomfort and baby whimpers.
And you know … the only thing I found to soothe his gums these days is a big raw apple. J chews and chews on that and it seems to help.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend! We are EXHAUSTED over here and so wishing it was a long weekend!
