My Journal - Week 27 (25Feb10) (Evening)
Alright, I think I was ahead of myself a little when I said Hunter is not even bothered by his teething. Not so fast Mommy... it really does hurt. Today, Hunter burst into tears, that painful cry. I knew immediately since nothing else was going on. Must be his gums. As soon as I massaged the sore spot, he settled down. I promptly gave him infant Motrin and baby Anbesol (yes, I was prepared) and within five minutes, he was sound asleep - for 4 hours. (Well, we did have a very early morning today as we were all up at six am for a doctor appointment scheduled at 8:00 am) I decided to get the wet washcloth, tie it in a knot and freeze it in a Ziplock baggy (as per recommendation by Jenn our E.I. and the many books I had read.) Here you can see a (more or less) content baby chewing on the frozen washcloth. I decided that I will post a picture of the tooth again when he's a little less fussy and when it's more prominent for you to see in a photo. We can see it, but the photo's don't do it justice.
