    Default Teething

    My chunk bug is starting to teeth already! I kind of expected it early since Jace got his first teeth in at 4 months. I'm definitely not looking forward to getting my nips bit! He's started to chomp down on them and that hurts bad enough. Are any of your LOs showing signs of teething yet?

    I think she's showing signs of teething. Kylie has been drooling and loves to clamp down on DH's finger and pushed it to the back of her mouth. I asked the DR yesterday at her 2 month check up and of course got the standard every baby is different answer. He said generally 4-6 months but some come later and some come earlier. I'll have to pull DS's baby book out and see when he got his first one in. He was an easy teether though so I don't really remember much.

    I am going to find some teething rings for her. Hopefully some longer ones she can get to the back of her mouth since that seems to be where she wants the pressure of biting down.

    Oh dear teeth! I am so scared of nursing him with teeth, he has a ferocious latch already. Ha. Plus you get the double whammy of having a fussy baby.

    Hmm so how did you know he had teeth? Was he munching on something and then you checked? I need to watch out for these cues, guess I need to read up on teething soon. I know Wade is a whole month older, but gosh this hadn't even crossed my mind. I had no idea babies got teeth this early. People keep asking me too when he will have teeth and I have been so clueless. Our babies are growing up too fast.

    Sam got his teeth really late, so I hope Tim follows his example.

    I was terrified of getting bit with Sam, but he never did it. The bottom teeth come in first which if latched correctly is covered by the tongue. They would need to bite themselves first before biting the nipple. I was very vigilant about his latch for a while with teeth so I would be ready if he slipped off and could bite. I nursed him for a year and a half.

    Drooling is a major sign for teething and usually some fussiness and low grade temps. I just stick my finger in and feel around. You will notice like whit areas of gums where they are coming through and you can feel them

    Thanks Aimee! Forgot about the drooling. Yeah I hear daycares often send babies home when they are teething due to fever. And you have to have a doctors note to let them go back. That stinks. What a waste of a copay.

    How long does it usually last? I should be googling this stuff, but since we are talking about it. I hope not weeks. I have 1 week of vacation saved up in case he gets sick. DH has 13 days. I get 3 sick days a year, and used them all in january. Hope my work remains flexible. Poor babies, teething sounds hard.
