Through the pain, however, I am finding that my bloggy friends give
Not really sure about the affects of these 2. I see no improvement at all while using these products. I received a lot of this stuff from baby showers so I figured I might as well try and use it but honestly, I don't think either one help much. I do have the Baby Orajel in the Q-tip dispensers though so they are really convenient so if we are out and I don't have anything else to try, I will use them. They just don't help enough for me to justify using them on a regular basis. I numb him up and he still fusses and drools even more! *lol*
One day at the grocery, I came across some Teething Tablets. I purchased them because so many Mom's rave about them. I used them once and couldn't really tell if they helped or not. After purchasing them, I have done some research and I found a lot of articles like THIS where babies have had severe reactions to them due to the Belladona in them. Now, I can't imagine them being on the market if they were dangerous but it does make me want to look more into them now that I have read those things. lol You know, a Mom can never be too safe. Ok, maybe we can be. lol But I am still researching these. What's your experience with them? Positive? Negative?
Chilled Teething Rings
Definitely one of the best remedies yet! We have purchased about a dozen teething toys now and we pop them along with some binkies in the freezer and he just loves to chew on them. Works like a charm!
Wet and Frozen Washcloths
Aiden loves chewing cloth. He chews his bibs, his clothes, his Ringley teething toy. You name it and he will soak it in slobber. So one of our favorite things to do is just give him a cold, wet washcloth to chew on. Sometimes we chill it for a few minutes first but either way, it keeps him happy for awhile.
Not recommended but so darn funny
One day I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and Aiden started to fuss in the living room so I sent my 8 year old in to try and occupy him. I couldn't believe after a minute or 2 he was silent so I went to check on him and here is what I found.
Yep. It's no wonder he loves having 2 big brothers and a big sister. They do things that Mommy wouldn't ever do like give him POPSICLES! lololol
Luckily, teething is only temporary. It won't last forever and I guess if a fussy baby is the worst thing that ever happens, I'll be lucky.
