Teething for Real

Remember when I used to post about the fact that Daniel's teeth were taking their time coming in?  Well, my little boy is now getting his molars... all at once... and it sucks!  He is crying.  A lot.  He wakes up crying.  He wakes up in the middle of the night crying.  He cries when he eats.  He cries when he drinks.

Matt and I are heartbroken for him.  He goes from being the sweetest and happiest little boy in the world to being so sad and hurting.  He takes my hand and pushes it into his cheeks, bites his fingers and just whines.

Moms - how long is this going to take?  I cautiously stick my fingers in his mouth, feel all those teeth and I know it must feel like hell for him.  All at once?  What are the odds?

  1. Oh my sweet boy - I'm so sad for him - try ice chips, popsicles, anything cold.

    The old remedy is rubbing scotch or brandy or any other whiskey where the molars are breaking through the skin - it works - and it will help him sleep too - kisses from Nana
