Teething

Grace got her first tooth at 4 and a half months. And it seems like she's been teething ever since. I know, I know, that's probably an exaggeration, but teething causes my generally sweet child to turn into a grumpy, whiny girl who won't sleep, eat or follow any basic instructions. Her 2 year molars are now coming through and I can feel 3 out of the 4. I'm really hoping the 4th one is close to coming through as well so we can be done with all of the teething grumpiness. The only thing that seems to help at all is Tylenol or Motrin, but even that only helps for so long. I feel sorry for her, I know it has to hurt. She spends a lot of her days walking around with her fingers in her mouth.

She found this hat and wouldn't take it off
Nap times haven't improved at all since I last posted about them. In fact, most days you can find her napping like this...sucking on my finger the entire time.


I pray that we are almost done with teething. Of course, if Connor gets his as early as Grace did, we'll only have a few months of a break before his start coming in.

Did your child have a hard time when they were teething? I've heard of cases where it doesn't bother them at all.

  1. Teething for us has only gotten worse as she's gotten older. Currently she's working on her eye teeth...not napping, eating, is grumpy, running a temp, and horible rash. When she first started teething shed sleep more and eat just fine.
    Hope her 4th molar comes in so you can get a break!
    I hate teething. :)
