Hi! Someone recently recommending using orange oil on my kiddos gum to help with teething. Poor kid has like 4 teeth coming in right now. Has anyone ever heard of this or used it?
My 10 month old has decided she doesn’t want to nap for more than 30mins twice a day. We try and let her cry it out but it doesn’t work. Today she took a 30 min nap at 1000am and then took a 35min nap at 2pm. We let her cry for about 10 mins and then we went in and cuddled her for about 20mins all during which she was going hysterical. I know they say don’t pick them up and stay in for long p... More
My daughter just turned one on Monday. She was doing great going to sleep on her own and staying in her own crib. Lately she wakes up crying and sits up. She won’t go back down until I pick her up and take her to bed with me. She is getting her first tooth. I don’t know if it’s just a new thing and is teething related or some stage. Any advice would be welcome
Help! We’ve tried everything to get my 11 month old boy to sleep through the night, not to mention he’s teething right now 😓 any helpful tips on how to get through this season without losing my mind? We have tried chew toys, vanilla extract, baby Tylenol, white noise, fan, no lights, at this point I am just trying to let him cry it out but feel so helpless 😪
She’s also been drooling a lot just don’t remember my other kiddo complaining this much when teething. She’s refusing everything and nothing soothes her. She refuses naps and bottles and chewy toys. It’s just all over the place and so all of the sudden?
Hello, My 14 month old all of a sudden starting whining and throwing fits. It’s especially bad when she wakes up from her second nap of the day. She was never like this. It was so bad today I just sat in the bathroom for a couple minutes to take a breather. I took her to the dentist and they said her molers are coming in. Can this be teething or is this a new stage in her life?? It’s driving me... More
My 10mo daughter has had an AWFUL cold — combatting a fever, cough, congestion, whole 9 yards, so based on our pedi’s recommendation we were giving her ibuprofen 3x a day. This went on for a good 5 days...started to show real improvement, so we stopped for about 3 days. Then, not only did she get super sick again but she’s also getting 4 TEETH! She’s ABSOLUTELY MISERABLE. So back to ibuprof... More
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.
