Along with being my errand buddy today, Ayden spent the day teething like a maniac!
He cut his first 8 teeth right at the average time and in the average order. Then we had a huge gap in teething. Every now and then he'd get fussy and we'd see signs of pressure where his molars should come through and then he'd get a break from it again without them ever cutting to the surface. Then, unexpectedly, we saw a canine. After another break, he cut a couple more canines while we were in DC. Now it seems his teeth are making up for lost time because he cut his last canine yesterday and is working on 3 molars today! One of them is even pushing a chunk of gum out and it is hanging by a thread. Holy cow teething is really no joke!!
All that considered he has handled it all pretty well.
He has been wearing his teething necklace for months (only taking it off for baths), has been gnawing on his little fingers and we have plenty of Camilla at the ready. Then, right after dinner tonight, he lost it. And boy did it escalate when we brushed his teeth (that's when I noticed just how many teeth broke the surface today.
Poor little guy! I hope he gets another break after this round because it sure has been a doozy for him!
How do you comfort your babies through teething? Did any of them cut teeth out of "order?"
