A few months ago, both boys got both bottom teeth without any incident. One dose of Camilia for Nolan and the teeth were in. As for Asher, we didn't even know he was teething until I looked one morning and saw two tiny little chompers. Little toughies, as per usual.
The top teeth are a whole other story. Asher didn't take 7 bottles in a row (that's over two days worth! Considering that their 3 bottles/day are the only liquid they take, I was having a mild heart attack, envisioning him getting admitted to peds for IV hydration). I tried feeling his gums but there was nothing there and I got no reaction. Then one night Jordan stuck a finger in and poor Asher sounded like a dying cat. So we dosed him up with Tylenol and sure enough he took his first bottle in two and a half days!
Well that was three days ago and he hasn't been able to take a bottle without tylenol or Camilia since. Nolan on the other hand was fine until last night, and suddenly he has turned into a bear too. So far he is bottling fine but he is sooo grumpy and whiny. It is heartbreaking (and exhausting) to see them so miserable.
Of course Jordan is at work tonight, Rio needs a bath, and the boys are miserable. What's a mama to do but try to ride it out, send the big kid to bed dirty and hope the boys settle soon.
Oh 4 front teeth - please make your appearance soon!! I can't take this!
