If you’ve been following for a while, you may recall that C has been teething for quite some time. Two months, actually. For these past two months, C’s mouth has become increasing like a faucet. He gnaws on EVERYTHING. It actually kinda hurts when he bites on your finger because he clamps down so hard. Poor thing.
Today, I took him to the doctor because he hasn’t been himself this week. He’s extra whiny and fussy, doesn’t drink more than an ounce or two at a time, spits up all over the place, pulls at his left ear, and often wakes up crying. We thought he might have an ear infection, but what was the doctor’s answer? Teething.
Grr. How long can a child experience teething issues before that darn first tooth cuts through?! I feel so bad for him. Apparently the doc saw “bottom teeth” (plural!) that were coming in, but not quite at the gum yet. I feel the need to start a cheer: C’MON, C! CUT! THOSE! TEETH!
