My LO will be 17 weeks next week, and for the past week he has been incredibly grumpy, iritated, waking quite a few times at night, he is constantly rubbing at his cheeks, absolutely screaming the house down and it's a pain kind of cry ( last night he wouldnt stop crying for an hour, i had to pop him in the bath as he was overheating from crying so much , he is gnawing on his hands really really hard, when we feed him he is biting down on the teat, he has gone off his food, at his age the doc said he should be drinking around 150ml per feed but lately he wont even finish 100ml ( only been having 50- 80ml ) I am not too worried about the gone off the food thing as he is a big bub, was 7.5kg at 14 weeks, he has a bit of a red bum, drooling alot and very restless.. Does this sound like teething to you?
If it does, could anyone please tell me what i can do to help my little guy? Im a new mum so ive never have to deal with teething problems. I have given him panadol, but it doesnt seem to be doing anything. He also wears a amber braclet on his ankle but im not sure if is doing anything either..
I feel so helpless, and i get the worst anxiety when he is screaming in pain as i literally dont know what to do to help my baby.
