    Default We have a tooth!!

    Wyatt cut his first tooth on Saturday. Talking to one of my sisters and what is the first thing she says to me....

    "So I guess you are done breastfeeding now huh?"

    UM NO! I did not realize that now that he has one little tooth that he does not need to eat. We are 2 weeks shy of his half birthday and thinking of having some avocado this weekend.

    This growth spurt is killing me. He is attached all day long and eating more that I can pump while I am at work. I hope it doesn't last that much longer, between the teeth and the growth spurt this mama needs a nap.

    1st tooth is such a bittersweet time IME. They are getting bigger and it's exciting, but on the other hand they are getting bigger adn it's sad. And the gummy smile is no more. DD2 has 2 teeth, DD1 none. I haven't experience much biting at all and hope I never will-same to you too.

    I heard the same thing when my LO sprouted teeth at 8mos :P. He has been very gentle with those new chompers when nursing!

    I feel the same way. I was really excited but then I almost cried. I cant believe that he is growing up so fast.

    DS got his first 2 at 3 months, so I've been hearing that for some time! Stick with it! It's not so bad. DS is now almost 9 months with 8 teeth, and he no longer bites - only an accidental scrape here and there!

    I am a little worried as well but I am sure it will be fine. They can learn not to.
