Teething is the 2-3 year journey. It involves, drooling, biting, crying, fussing, no sleep, pain, crankiness, crazy behavior, fevers, flus, earaches, diarrhea to name a few symptoms! A few? You call that a few? Seriously, it’s not a joke. For some moms, teething just flies by and within 6-12 months their babies have all their teeth. One mom told me she never had any issues with teething, the teeth just popped in and no pain! If I were her I would go into hiding…
On the plus side, you get the cutest little pictures, transitioning from gummy smiles to rabbit smiles, to 8 teeth smiles (where we are at now), to a full set of beautiful teeth and you wonder where the time has gone. My Eldest Finished Teething close to 3 years old and my middle child who is almost 3 still haven’t had all her molars cut through. My youngest who is 10 months is finally getting his first tooth cutting through now! We still have a long way to go but I am sure God willing we will get through it!
Every mom with a new infant needs a survival guide for teething. Many moms don’t really know what to expect, how to cope, and how to help their babies. I was one of those mama’s who didn’t even know the teething order! I didn’t realize that despite my baby’s drooling/biting at 3 months, his first tooth wouldn’t cut through until months later. We literally sat there for 9 months saying he’s teething, any day now for that first tooth!
