I've HAD it with teething

I'm at my wits end. The Chubs has been working on her top teeth for weeks now. They have been swollen with her teeth hovering just below the surface and they have decided to make the slowest most agonizing appearance ever. The top teeth are so much worse than the bottom ones, it's ridiculous. We've had flat out refusal and highchair tantrums with solids, painful long bed times that consist of inconsolable fussing, naps that don't last more than about 10-15 min., and just general overall crankiness almost constantly.

Chubadub's Teeth,

Would you PLEASE just come out and break the surface already? If you don't come soon, I think I may admit myself to a mental institute. Don't you realize how ridiculously long you are taking? Haven't you figured out that a child that ALREADY has sensory issues is about the worst type of baby to take your sweet old time with? I would love to stop drugging up my child and get my Failure to Thrive baby to start eating well again. She already has enough in the oral aversion department, we don't need to add sore aching gums to our never ending list of issues. It's a little important, thankyouverymuch.

  1. We had the same problem with our little sweets top teeth. I think it was a good month of the awfulness. They were worse than her molars. Hang in there. I too, thought I was going to have to commit myself.

  2. I'm so sorry! If the top teeth are that much worse than the bottom, I'm already dreading it! Camden went from consistently taking 2 hour naps to taking 30 minute naps once his bottom teeth started to appear. NOT FUN. Hang in there, momma. Hopefully those teeth will pop up very soon.

  3. I can't stop singing "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth..." =) An early Christmas gift would be nice this year, huh?

  4. I'm so sorry you are now struggling with teething on top of the feeding issues, seems like it never ends. Hopefully it won't be too long and those teeth will come right in. Thanks for all your sweet comments, really means alot to me!
