Teething, you suck!

You want to know my top teething tips? Hide…drugs and hiding.  I’ll let you decide who the drugs are for.

Noah’s first 2 teeth came in June and I had clearly blanked that period from my memory already.  He is now gum deep in cutting number 3 and I’m about ready to buy shares in Tanqueray.  Teething in our house truly is the pits, my poor baby is in pain and nothing I seem to do makes it any better for him.  Up all night and grumpy all day, this tooth growing business has a lot to answer for.  Our current teething arsenal looks like this…
  • Nurofen
  • Calpol
  • Anbesol
  • Nelsons Teetha teething powders
  • Ashton & Parsons teething powders
  • Boots teething powders
  • Nelsons teething gel (lost to the black hole of the changing bag)
  • Bickie pegs (another black hole victim)
  • Cloth Sophie
  • Squeaky Sophie
  • Cardboard Sophie
  • Bathtime Sophie
  • Weird alien Sophie
  • Mam bite and relax teether
  • Various teething rings
  • Water filled fridgey teether
  • Tommy Tippee teething dummy do dah thingy (used with teething gel)
  • A spoon
  • Mummy’s finger, Daddy’s finger, anyones finger
  • Can you tell how desperate we are to find something that works?  We’ve tried all sorts, a combination of the above occasionally takes the edge off. My top 3 would probably be Nurofen, Teetha teething powders & a hoof or 2 of trusty old squeaky Sophie.  The harsh reality though is that it’s mainly been about battening down the hatches and riding out the storm.
