Dear My Teething Terror.  -

Aww no fun! I remember many times thinking I’d have to stop nursing because of chomping, but she eventually stopped. When it happened I’d just pull out, say ouch fairly firmly, she would maybe cry for a minute and I’d sooth her without the boob, then when she’d settle again I’d reintroduce the boob. Eventually she got the idea that I didn’t appreciate the chomping. Good luck! It isn’t nearly so chompy once those front teeth are done.

I hope so! So far, I’ve been doing just that and it’s not been too bad – I’m just looking out for all the queues for when he’s finished. Fingers crossed! X

Oh that’s a good one too! It’s been a while for me so i had forgotten some of the tricks. 🙂

Oh the teething days . So many of us blogging moms are going through it right now. Those two front teeth are ohhh so cute though 🙂 how many does he have? How many months is he?

They are so so cute! He has the two at the top and the two at the bottom. Very cute indeed, but at 4 months I can’t imagine it’s quite painful.

4 months oh boy, he’s early. My little Leo is 9 months and hadn’t had any sign of teething until 2 weeks ago when he got 6 in at once!!! It was crazy. Hence my exhausted posts

Bingo went through the tooth grinding phase as well– I hated the sound, especially when I was holding her or wearing her in the carrier. Apparently it’s just their way of experimenting with the feel/sound of this strange new body part (teeth), and at least with Bingo it stopped pretty quickly.

The biting came later for Bingo– at around a year, I think– but stopped quickly when she made the cause/effect link that biting meant being unlatched: pretty much THE WORST punishment for a boob loving baby!

I can’t imagine the pain of him chomping down after a feed, and I don’t think I want to, yikes!
Such an earlier teether too bless him!
Aria is teething at the moment, or at least I hope she is so that I have an excuse for the amount of tears lately.
I’ve actually just written a teething essentials post that may come in handy, though I’m sure you’ve probably tried most of it already.

Yikes indeed! It definitely smarts.

Teething early definitely has its pros and cons. It’s good to get it over and done with, but at the same time he’s just so young for that amount of pain. You. Ant really explain it. Poor baby. I hope you get through it smoothly! Tears are definitely a good sign of teething (from both sides!)

I saw you had written that. That’s handy, actually! I’m catching up on all my reading today so yours will be at the top of my list! Thank you. X
