Baby G cut his first tooth just before seven months. By the time he is eight months old (next week) he will have six teeth.
The poor little mite. You can imagine how the last month has been.
To be fair, he has been a brave little soldier and pain seems to make him want to drink more milk. I think it must be a soothing thing.
So how have we got through it?
Well, this just shows you how every baby is different. With Boo, it was the teething powders that got us through. Along with ice cold dummies. She hated teethers and couldn’t understand why you would bite anything which couldn’t be digested.
G gags at the teething powders and will not have a dummy. We are still using teething gels but a friend of mine told me you can use Anbesol liquid for babies (always check the label) and my, has that been a god send.
It does the job quickly and works for a good while.
Teethers have also been great, This boy will chew anything he can get his small, chubby hands on.
Have you looked at teethers recently though? There is so much choice-hard, soft, cold. I didn’t know where to begin but thankfully, MAM came to the rescue.
Famous for their feeding equipment and soothers, I didn’t know they did teethers too and we were sent a lovely little frog called Max.
Well, Max the Frog has been a brilliant addition to the family. I feel a bit sorry for him as he has been chewed to death but, I suppose that is what he is here for.
Thank goodness for Max the Frog.
We were send Max for the purpose of this review. There are three other characters in the new MAM latex teethers range.
