I received my first phone call from daycare last week – A.C. had a fever and was not feeling well. When I got there to pick him up he was napping instead of running and playing with the other kids. What would it be this time? Cold? Flu? Cough? No it was worse… Teething!
A.C. has been sporting a cut gap tooth grin for months now, and it was finally time for his top eye teeth to make their debut. When A.C. was little he was a champ with teething – never really complaining, and all we had to do was put on his amber necklace and you would never know they were bothering him. But as he has gotten older the teething has become more difficult. The fever was new this time around, and he had a lot of trouble sleeping (so mommy and daddy did not get much sleep either).
Frozen blueberries were about the only thing he would eat, which is totally unlike A.C. who normally eats just about everything. We also used the Amber Necklace and Tylenol to help with the pain. It is frustrating not being able to help him more.
Although this teething session has finished and I have my happy little boy back, I know that there will be more teething (and sleepless nights) to come as he gets his molars.
What tips/tricks have you used to help your kids through the final stages of teething?
