Joshua has been cutting his eye teeth for like the last several weeks (3-4 weeks). The tips of 3 of them are through. The other one is puffy. He went from sleeping 8pm-5am before needing to nurse, to nursing 3-4 times a night again. Now I don't know if he is just falling back into this night nursing routine, or if his gums seriously hurt. We have been giving him motrin, but I don't want to overdrug him and give it to him every night. This has been going on for weeks. He does have less of an appetite and want to nurse more frequently. I feel like he is reverse cycling at 18 months!!! I would like to get him back on track at nighttime, but not until I know he is not in teething pain. How the heck long does it take for these suckers to break through?
The good thing is that the dentist told us he has all of his teeth until the 2 year molars. That should give us a bit of a break.
