As a parent, teething is a horrible thing to see our
babies go through, no matter what their age. With J, his first tooth didn’t
come through until he was 9 months old, but looking back I think he was
teething from around 10 weeks old. He had a couple of the usual signs – hand biting,
dribbling – but though I kept checking for teeth emerging I never actually saw
any until then.
With N, although all babies are different, I have to be
honest that I was expecting pretty much the same. But, I think he started
teething from around 7 or 8 weeks old – the same signs, hand biting &
dribbling. Differently to J though his first tooth is starting to poke through
already, at the grand old age of 5 months old. Compared to when J got his first
tooth, he still seems much too young to be going through the pain of teething.
When you tell people that your baby is teething, they
suggest so many different remedies. From the older generation, I’ve found that
it’s usually whiskey on the dummy (not that N has one) or rubbed on their gums!
Other remedies that have been suggested to me are amber anklets/necklaces,
teething powders, teething gel, teething rings, ice lollies (obviously for when
they are a little older), or ice cold fruit & vegetable sticks. With J we
tried the powders and gel; he never really took to a teething ring. So far with
N we have tried amber & the gel. He can’t quite grip a teething ring yet as
it’s a little heavy. Though as a mum, I am always on the lookout for new
teething pain remedies.
