For the first 6 months of new-mom-hood, I thought I had the absolute PERFECT babe. Miss P slept through the night early on, she was well-socialized, she ate well, played well, did everything well…. and then, at about the 6 month, 3 week mark….she started teething.
She’s 9 months now and, why yes, we are still teething.
And while I know my sweet girl is still in that cute little body somewhere, unfortunately for all parties involved, right now she’s hidden behind bloody gums, fevers, rosy cheeks, and a LOT of fussing 🙁
Early on in P’s teething, I had high hopes that drama of the experience would be short-lived and thus decided to turn a blind eye and let her tough it out for awhile (in hindsight, totally not smart). And then came the revelation morning. On this particular morning, my cranky, sleep-deprived little girl chomped down on my finger to find some relief. And that was when I realized she had six (yes SIX!) teeth trying to pop through at the same time.
This finally motivated me to take action. I went on a furious search for all the best teething products and remedies I could find. And I am happy to report, thank goodness, that they are starting to help : ) And because I don’t want you all to have to wade through the process of browsing the internet, sifting through social media, and asking friends and fam for teething relief ideas like I did, I figured I’d share MY list with YOU!
Some of these are products I’ve used and loved. Others come HIGHLY recommended by friends. Check them out and let me know if you want any more help finding a good solution for your little 🙂
