My nearly 8 month old has been cutting her two bottom teeth for the past two weeks. She has been in constant pain during this time. She starting the teething process at four months with drooling, biting everything and being cranky, I dealt with that using an amber bead necklace, teething rings, massaging the gums, cool washers, bonjela and panadol if it got too bad. The last two weeks she has had panadol at least once per day. I feel terrible giving her panadol every day. I took her to the doc and she does have a sore throat and has been on amoxil for 3 days. I am still having to give her panadol. Her sleeping is terrible. Up every hour or so through the night. I just pat her back to sleep. She use to put her self to sleep and I would sit on a chair in her room however now I have to put her on the breast to get her to sleep because she will scream the house down. At night she is a little bit better and will sometimes still put herself to sleep while other times I need to rock her. I feel like I have taken a giant leap backwards!!!!!!!
So my questions are has anyone else been through teething like this? Is it like this with each tooth coming through? Did your routine come back easily or was it like starting from scratch again?
I am just exhausted being up so much through the night and she will only have 2 30 minute naps through the day. Her day starts at 4.30 unfortunately and she goes to bed at 6.30 - 7pm so it is a very, very long long day! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
