Teething pain strikes most of my LJ friends babies at the same time Kari is goes through it, I wonder if it's a phase like moon phases or something.

I've noticed Kari's gums are just pure white and swollen. I'm expecting teeth to come in any day but I'm not holding my breath because everytime I expect teeth to show, they never do. She's almost 10 months and has no teeth. Our poor lil babies. Teething sucks. Hey, I thought we told the tooth demon to leave us alone? Doesn't he realize that goes for our babies too?!

God, if you are reading/listening... ease Max's teething pains and help his mommy get some good sleep!

Okay, so have you tried maybe giving him some Motrin for his teeth? If you haven't, seriously give him some Motrin, not Tylenol, because Motrin works better on teething pain and lasts longer and acts quicker. For his size and age, I'd go with .625mL. His age range and weight actually calls for 1.25mL, the same as Kari's, but I never give her a full dosage. I know that we don't like to medicate our babies but as a complete last resort I will give her some when she acts just totally miserable and nothing else is working. I had to do it today because she woke up and started bawling her little eyes out chewing on her fingers and nothing else was working to ease her pain, not even frozen washcloths. Within 3 minutes she was okay.

I hope you get some rest soon and Max gets to feeling better! Teething sucks bad.

are just pure white and swollen- YEssS thats what it looks like.

Dumbass me gave him tylenol. He HATES HATES HATES motrin. Everytime I even ATTEMPT to give it to him, he spits it out and I have to give him more and just end up with motrin all over him and myself, and have to clean him off. I am seriously so over all this teeth stuff. Since I had max, I got 2(my very first cavaties tyvm) cavaties filled and started breastfeeding, I now cannot chew ANYTHING on the right side of my mouth and have the most sensative teeth, hot and cold. And no insurance =no dentist. And I think I officially got my period today. I thought I had it mothers day, but it was like 1/8th of a tsp of blood in that clear jelly discharge, today it was like old blod and bright red blood. tmi sorry. and I have heartburn. ahhhhhhh all i want to do is sleep.

That's weird. Kari's the opposite. She hates the taste of Tylenol but loves the motrin. But it's probably Max's taste preference. Maybe if you can express some breastmilk and add the Motrin in to that, he might take it that way since he loves his breastmilk! :)

You had two cavities filled and you can't chew on the one side? That sounds like they didn't get the filling in right. If you have teeth aches, seriously try this. Take a tea bag, soak it in some lukewarm water (I usually go for hot but you said you have sensitive teeth so lukewarm would be better for you). Put the teabag on the side that the teeth hurt and it'll kill the pain. It's worked for me quite a few times. Ugh stupid tooth demon >:O

Periods suck too. and nothing is TMI with me LOL! I work in the medical field (okay I dont exactly work but I am a state certified CNA and have volunteered on ambulance units, so I've seen a LOT of stuff) hehe.

Heartburn - Rolaids SoftChews work wonders for me. :)

Hope you can get some sleep!
