Bubbakins has been clingy, sensitive and super emotional lately and I think it's because she finally has a tooth coming through.
From what I can see and what charts indicate, it seems to be one of the bottom lateral incisors which is great but also a worry since the charts says the central ones are meant to come through first.. 🤦🏻♀️
She had a restless night last night and woke up grumpy early this morning which prompted me to finally buy an amber necklace for her. People keep recommending it and at this point I'm keen to give any natural remedy a go.
The only thing that worked for me today was the huge piles of laundry that needed folding.
It wasn't the frozen blueberries (which I'm hesitant to give her since they turn her poop black. I monitor her poop colour and cant do that with the blueberries.); or her toys, or any amount of cuddles and kisses that made her feel better. It was the laundry.
She just LOVES clothes.
The look on her face when I dumped the basket's contents on the rug 😂. She immediately stopped whinging, crawled over and started rummaging through the pile.
Thank f. I did two loads of washing today which meant I had more clothes for her to go through in the afternoon.
It's been hard going lately. I feel drained and exhausted every day and her restless nights and grumpy days are really wearing me down.
I feel bad though because I know she's in pain herself and can't help the way she's being and I don't know what to do to help her. I wasn't woke with my eldest and I used bonjela which I don't want to use on Bella.
So far we've been going with organic teething biscuits, frozen berries, cold teethers, laundry day.... and I'm really hoping this amber necklace lives up to the hype.
I could really use some natural remedy recommendations. What do/did you guys use for your kids when they were teething?
