Teething

Husband here with a quick update before I get more coffee...

Ned is officially teething. We can feel two bumps on the lower gum. And he was up wailing until about 3:00 last night before the exhaustion finally started working together with the ibuprofen.

I'm tired. On the bright side, once these two teeth are out, it should be smooth sailing until he's 16 or so. I assume.

Mommy, Esq. additional information: This is payback for my hubris when I said the kids were teething last December. Special thanks to Husband for getting up most of the time - I'm so lucky his side of the bed is closer to the door.

How funny that we were just talking about teething yesterday! Sorry to hear about the bad night...it happens unfortunately!

For generations, parents have been using whiskey to ease the pain of teething. Drink a couple or three shots at bedtime and you won't hear the crying...

LOL...I like the whiskey comment. I was going to say they make a GREAT vibrating teether. It looks like a bunch of grapes or a strawberry. The kids are crazy about it. Other than that I dose them up before bedtime. Ibuprofen seems to work better on pain but is harder on their stomach.
