Cranky Pants

Cranky Baby Before

For the past 3 weeks or so ago, Josh has been SO cranky.

He went from a mama's boy who a boy who didn't want to be without his mama AT ALL. He would only sleep for snatches in my bed (never in his crib), would scream most days if I put him down, wouldn't take naps, etc.

I was seriously going crazy. I wasn't able to get any work done and wasn't getting much sleep, and I had tried a lot of things, but nothing was working.

I was with some friends the other day, and Josh was fussing and had thrown his head back. My friend looked at him and said, "Ouch! He's getting in 6 teeth!"

Sure enough, he was. All 6 top teeth are coming in at once.

I had figured he was teething, but didn't realize it was THAT bad!

I don't like giving my kiddos too much medicine, but I knew that if I was having that much tooth pain, I'd want some drugs, y'know?

So, I've been giving him Tylenol and lots of cold teething rings.

And I got my happy baby back!

He even slept in his crib for 4 hours straight last night!


Happy Baby After

I hear that the core of pineapple is a natral theathing pain realever there is also a brand Hilands or something like that. It is all natral. Keep in mind that not all natral solutions work with all kids. Thought you might want to give it a try.

Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do! Poor sweet Joshy...with those sweet teary eyes looking up at you, I know you couldn't deny him. So glad you BOTH are getting more rest!
