Can't it wait?

Meatball seems to be in the early stages of teething.

The Boy didn't really start cutting teeth until he was almost 6 months old but he started with the chewing on stuff much earlier.

Of course, it seems to be affecting his nursing. Not too much but I can tell that he is fussy and uncomfy as a result.

Just when we get him calmed down, something else pops up with him. It's the Meatball whac-a-mole game.

Teething is no fun. Is The Boy done teething? We're still waiting on the last four molars. Might he be interested in a cold passifier or a cold wash cloth? Some people swear by giving babies wash cloths after they have been in the freezer for a while. I used to rub my daughter's gums with my finger. Basically, I was desperate, tried many things, and I hope that my silly little brainstorm might help Meatball a bit.

Oh poop. It really sucks when they get teeth so young because it seems like they never get a break. I feel for you!!! If it's any consolation, Andrew did marvelous and nursed probabaly even more when his teeth started coming at 3 months. Sounds like Meatball is darn close!
