So my LO is 15 months. He is a GREAT sleeper...on the regular he sleeps from 9:30p-9:30a. However...he’s teething right now with molars. Chewing on hands, drool everywhere & soaking bibs...& he’s been waking up early (between 4a-6a) for the past week. I give him Motrin before bed & seems to give relief for a bit. When he wakes up he won’t lay back in crib...I will let him sleep on m... More
My ten month old has lost interest in eating. I open a four ounce container and he doesn’t finish it. I’ve tried feeding him different types of food; purées, Puffs, fruit, etc. No interest in eating. Then around dinner time he’ll eat about eight ounces of food. His molars are coming in and I think another tooth is breaking through. Is this due to teething?
Anyone else have babies that took a long time to get teeth? He got his two front top teeth many months ago and no sign of any other teeth since. My dentist told me not to worry until he’s 2, but we’re getting closer and closer to his 2nd birthday, so I’m starting to worry a bit. Anyone else had a similar experience with their little one?
Baby’s first tooth finally cut through! It’s enough to be slightly visible and 100% felt when she BF...but then doesn’t seem to have progressed (it’s been a couple weeks since the fever and first push-through). When should we expect it to be all the way out of her guns and looking like a real tooth instead of a weird white lumpy bit just over the “horizon” of her gums? Also, this first one s... More
Hi everyone! Our first tooth finally cut through baby’s gums (though it isn’t all the way out yet). How did you introducing tooth/teeth brushing? I would like to brush her new tooth before bed to avoid decay, but I’m not sure how that will go—she normally feeds then practically falls asleep in my arms at bedtime. I’m worried that brushing her teeth will throw her off and wake her up again 🤷... More
So my 11mo has caught some bug, we're in week 2. First week he got hives, hadn't had anything new so Dr and I chalked it up to probably the virus he had. First started with a little congestion and runny nose. Then hives and low grade fever. He still has congestion and runny nose. At first it didn't seem to affect his eating much. I noticed him maybe not eating the amount of baby foo... More
Help! My daughter is almost 5 months but has her two bottom teeth in. I’ve exclusively breastfed her since she was born and she hasn’t taken to any bottles whenever I try. Problem now is that she likes to bite when she eats. I feel like she’s too young to ‘teach’ her that biting hurts me. Suggestions? Not sure how much longer my nipples will last if she keeps it up.
Anyone else feel like they have the baby blues while their baby is teething? My son is normally happy and content and easy going but for the last two months he has been miserable. Aside from the top and bottom front two teeth he got at 6 months, he just had two more erupt and one was a molar. There are more coming but it is being dragged out and I feel so impatient. He is constantly whining and... More
My six month old has two teeth on the bottom, she has started biting me. She has done it enough that I started bleeding today. Obviously it is painful, any ideas about how to make her stop? It is both sides at random times. I was using a guard when she made me bleed.
My 5 month old is teething and yes, he is VERY fussy. Is it normal for him to not eat as much as normal while he is teething? The last couple days, he’s been pretty miserable and he used to eat 4 or 5 ounces every time I fed him. But lately, the most he will eat in a feeding is 4. Is this ok or should I be worried? It’s only been two days.
In the past two days my two year old son would not eat because he came down with some kind of stomach bug. He is feeling better now and I can get him to eat but when I get him to eat now he will eat some and then hold his mouth and say “ow”. Could he be teething again? I am pretty sure he has all his teeth but maybe not or maybe one is growing in some more I don’t know. Anyone have any clue tha... More
This our second round of erupting teeth. We did what worked before. •Camilla teething drops •Hylands nighttime teething tablets •Cold teething toys •teething biscuits •Babyganics teething gel Unfortunately these methods have not been super effective this time around. Baby boy has about 4-6 teeth all coming in at the same time. He’s been sticking his whole hand into his mouth. Along... More
My son is 10 months old and usually a decent sleeper and really chill and happy. For about the past 2-3 nights hes been waking multiple times a night, very hard to get back to sleep, doesn't seem to sleep for more than an hour or two at a time, and takes really short naps. Hes had a low grade fever (highest so far has been 100.6) off and on for the last day or so. Hes extremely irritable wh... More
