A teething baby has been a constant feature in our house since Little Pudding was 3 months old. She started dribbling really early on, and although I was surprised I knew it was her teeth bothering her.
I was proved right when she had her first two teeth by 5 months old. This was the earliest any of my children had cut teeth. Her older sister had been around 10 months before we saw any sign of the breaking the gum.
Since those first two teeth, the rest have been coming thick and fast. She is nearly 11 months old and she already has 8 teeth, and more are on the way. She has those rosy cheeks that are often a symptom that something is happening in their mouths, and bites on anything she can get her hands on. She is particularly fond of the wooden bars on her cot!
When a new tooth is about to pop, her sleep is really disturbed and often she will just be crawling around or playing and then from nowhere she will let out a cry that you don’t hear very often. It’s quite distinctive, it’s not whiney, it’s more of a ‘this really hurts Mummy, make it stop’. I know when this happens that she needs some help to cope with the pain as it’s all got too much for her.
Because there has been no let up in the appearance of her teeth, I was keen to find a product that was natural but effective. As Nelsons is the UK’s number 1 teething brand, I was keen to give their Teetha teething granules a try. Lots of Mums had recommended them to me, as well as my health visitor.
The granules were a huge success, and I found them really effective in helping to manage Little Pudding’s teething pain. They were really easy to apply, and because they were granules it was really easy to get them to stick to the gum. We always have some in the medical box now, and there’s always a packet in the changing bag for when we are out and about. They make for a much better nights sleep too!
