Re: terrible teething, pain relief for baby?
to you. My lo just got four top teeth and is now working on 2 molars and so I feel your pain and exhaustion. She sticks closer to me than my shadow. I've started carrying her around again in the sling so I can get stuff done. I am alternating with Motrin and Tylenol,use Hylands teething tablets, and lots of frozen washcloths. She actually really likes gnawing on her toothbrush right now so we let her keep it close by. She also seems to find comfort in gumming string cheese.
For sleep, I've been napping with her in my bed and after the first nighttime wake up I sleep next to her crib. More for my sanity/sleep than anything else.
As far as codine, I know it makes me like popcorn. I can't sleep when I take it.
Hang in there!
