Growing Pains

It's official Kemper is cutting his first tooth, or shall we say teeth. Yep his bottom two front teeth are coming in with a vengeance. Tylenol has been our best friend and has worked well so far. He is frantically chewing on everything but loves to chew on fingers, so watch out those chompers hurt! I'm still nursing so I've told him two bites and that's it, then were moving onto the bottle!

Poor baby !! I also tried baby Orajel to help numb his gums, big mistake. He hated the taste so bad he flipped out. Then he began to panic when the numbing sensation kicked in. I did my best to get it only on his gums but a little must have gotten mixed in his saliva and ended up on his tongue and he started choking on his saliva. Talk about feeling like a bad momma. So new mommas beware of the Orajel!!

Baby K recently started eating baby food. He was always fussy shortly after feedings so the pediatrician suggested starting him on some solids. We tried rice cereal first and he hated it, shuddered down to his toes. We tried that for a week and then moved on to green beans, loves them! After a week of green beans we tried peas, hates them! I think I already have a picky eater on my hands, so I guess we will stick to the green beans for a while.

Silly mommy!!

Haha - Love the pictures!

We are patiently waiting for the little toothers to come through. He is 6.5 months and still nothing...thanks for the orajel tip!

We also just started baby food not so long ago. We've been mixing rice cereal with 1st foods to fill his tummy. We also found that Terren loves the wheat cereal much more than the rice cereal.

Oh the fun of growing little boys!!

Frozen bagels and pizza crusts are great for teething. My kids also do great with those little mesh bags you can put frozen fruit in and let them chew on them. Target carries them in the baby feeding aisle!

He is so cute!!
Have you tried any of the natural teething drops or pills, they dissolve instantly in the babies mouth?
I never tried them because orajel worked for Jordan, but I have friends that swears by the natural stuff. I have seen it at Wal-Mart and Target.
Just a thought.
