teething baby is not fun

Not just one but four new teeth 

It’s been a long week in our house . Ava hasn’t been well so this has made her ultra clingy and moaning a lot . I thought it could be her teeth but wasn’t sure.

cuddles with my baby as her teeth are hurting her
To start with I really wasn’t sure what was wrong with her . We went to a party at a play barn a week ago . Now usually Ava loves going to he play barn . Especially seeing all the children , she just loves to be around other kids .

When we got there she seemed fine had slept quite a lot during the day but thought nothing much of it . So I put her in the baby area with a little girl she loves to play with . After about 10 minutes I noticed she was crying , which is really is unlike Ava so I went and got her .

Whilst giving her a cuddle she started to fall asleep . So I put her in her pushchair and she slept for most of the party . She didn’t even want to eat the food !!! Although she did manage to eat a whole pot of ice cream and a big one at that .

During  the week she really didn’t get any better . She wasn’t eating or drinking very much and still hadn’t cheered up . After two trips to the doctors and a failed attempt at a urine sample . The doctors suggested that if she hasnt had anything to drink in the next couple of hours then to take  her to hospital .

poorly baby thanks to her teeth
Not really wanting to take her to hospital for the fear they would laugh in my face . As at this point she was  fairly happy . I did what ever I could to get her to have something . One of the more successful strategies I used was feeding her a fruit pouch whilst she was in the bath as she loves the bath . After about an hour me and Jordan had managed to get some bits down her . So we put her to bed and agreed to see how she got on during the night .

For Ava she slept ok  that night . She had woken up in a much happier mood and was back to her normal self thank god. I don’t think I could have taken much more of her being poorly .

It wasn’t until I changed her nappy that I knew the reason she had been so poorly . She had cut four teeth on the top . I mean why cut four !. That must have been really painful . We all know too well how painful toothache can be I can only imagine this would be worse.

So thankfully I have my happy Baby girl back . I just hope to god she doesn’t have to go through this again with her next lot of teeth.

    Poor little baby! It’s awful seeing them in pain.

    I used to use Teetha. It seemed to work. A very cold clean cloth would work too. I’d bag a clean cloth into a freezer bag. Stick it in the freezer for an hour or so and let them bite away.

    Good luck 🙂
