He's a Lifesaver...That Husband of Mine...

After a long day filled with:

Crying-mine and Bella's




And lack of naps-mine Bella's

Leo brought me home this much needed relief:

Thank you, honey, thank you.

I will be ready to tackle yet another day of teething hell.

Teething is so not fun! A few things that helped my kiddos...

Banana popsicles - in case of emergency. A little messy, but it works!

Teething tablets - They dissolve in baby's mouth. They are homeopathic (sp?), but you can usually find them at the pharmacy in the baby section.

Ice cube wrapped in a damp baby washcloth & tied off with a rubber band. I think they make teethers along the same lines, but my kids loved the feel of the cold, damp washcloth on their gums.

I used Tylenol too once in awhile. Not as often after I found the teething tablets.

I hope today is better for you!

LOL, Chelle! Sounds like you had a fun day! I may have my hands full with the three little ones and a new puppy, but at least I'm not dealing with teething. :-)

Feel better, Bella!

Good Idea. I think I'm inspired now to have a little chat with my Hubby about a quick errand he needs to run;-) Hope your baby feels better.

I hear ya! Ella is teething too.

Maybe I should just drop her off at your house. What's one more teething baby right?:)

When I drop her off I am taking the wine:) Sunday is the last day I can drink alcoholic beverages for the next year. I'm sad:(

What a sweet gesture by your hubby.

Motrin/Advil was best for teething here.

Wine can be a mama's best friend at times :) I am looking forward to being done with nursing for that one reason - a good glass of wine.
If not for the wine then the end of nursing would have not one good thing about it.

Hope it eased the ringing of your ears :)
