The Pain of Teething

Teething can be a real pain. I always feel so sorry for the babies. These sharp bone like structures are ripping their gums apart. Imagine what they think?!?

It can also be hard on the family because all that pain means no sleep. I thought about holding my eyelids open with tooth picks today at work. 

We are having only mild success with anything we do to help soothe Baby C2. I think that is because he is getting 5 teeth at the same time. Hopefully, that also means we finish the teething stage faster. 

Here are a few things we’ve tried to help soothe his gums:

  • Amber teething necklace
  • Motrin
  • Infant Orajel
  • Teething rings
  • Frozen fruit in a mesh teether
  • Nursing
  • Our physician even recommended bourbon on the guns 😮

What do you do to help soothe your baby and to help you both get a little shut eye?

Peace, Love & No More Teething, 

Kristen
