Oh boy, we've had one beastly moment after another around here! Poor Gemma. She is teething and it's not going well. First we had to deal with her crying all the time because it hurt her to poo before her surgery. Now her teeth hurt and she is not happy! Naps are not happening around here this week. We went to the park a few times to meet up with friends and both times we had to leave early because of Gemma crying out in pain. She won't sleep during the day, and it's making her act even worse because she's over tired too. She has been sleeping all night except to nurse once, for almost 2 months now. But this week she has been getting up twice during the night to nurse. Gemma is drooling like crazy! If she weren't mine I'd think it was gross :) nothing we have tried is helping her that much. She doesn't like those hard teethers and she will chew/suck on a cold rag for a while but cries after a few min. I don't know what to do to help her! Do any of you have any tips? I'll try almost anything at this point. I don't know how long this is going to last either. Her bottom gums are a little white but it doesn't look like a tooth is going to pop in for a while. How long is this process??
