Now on to the real blog post: This is where mommy friends come in handy. You can read all of the books, surf the message boards, ask the sales people at Babies R Us, but sometimes you just need some tried and true advice. Lila is teething. She is just not herself.
Her sleep patterns are all off, which means everyone in the house isn't sleeping. Last night she was up at 4:30am, ate at 5am, up again at 6am, rolled back and forth between Brian and I for the next couple of hours, laughing until we had no choice but to wake up. Lots and lots of coffee today.
She is gnawing on everything she can get in her mouth but nothing seems to make it feel better. If she is really fussy, I will give her some Tylenol per our pediatrician's advice. Things that do not work: wet washcloth from the freezer, vibrating teething toy, teething ring, chewing on her fist or my fingers. Any other magic tricks up your mommy sleeves?
