Mia had a rough night again last night. Her teeth still haven't popped through though they are so close you can feel them and see them. She went to sleep alright, but woke up around 1am screaming. This girl doesn't wake up in the middle of the night and doesn't wake up screaming unless those teeth are bothering her and we know it's her teeth because she has both hands shoved in her mouth when we go in there. She doesn't really like teething rings so I tried teething pacifiers which seem to be a little better, but she still doesn't use them all the time. At my sisters house however she has discovered a silicone first toothbrush that she likes chewing on. It has different lengths of soft bristles that I must massage her gums just right. So I went out and bought one.
When she woke up all she wanted to do was cuddle. I held her for a while then when I thought she was sleeping I tried to put her down again and she started to cry again so Daddy came in to see if he could help her feel better while I went and got the baby orajel. After about a half hour she settled down and went back to sleep.
I just hate this teething business. It must hurt so bad!
What kind of teethers did your baby prefer?
