  • I did this too for about a month and a half straight then 2 bottom teeth appeared out of nowhere!!!
    Maybe your lil one is having a growth spurt or teething, just lots of love is all you can do plus what you have been doing....
    Trust me here in a few months this will seem like nothing....
    just remember "this to shall pass" on those up all nighters!

  • Try the hyland's teething tablets. I called them baby crack because when my kids were teething I give them a couple of those and they would get all calm and pass right out! You can find them in most drug stores but the cheapest place I found was in Wal mart's baby section. Lay off the Tylenol though I've seen pictures of the liver damage that stuff can do to babies. Also be careful with the teething tablets and stick to the directions on the bottle. It has belladonna in it and too much of that isn't good either.

  • Some babies are different. I've been having a problem with my DD (5 months) these past few weeks. Just be patient, I know it's hard. My middle child went through about 3 weeks of it, and my oldest couldn't sleep without my boob in her mouth. And I mean the ENTIRE night!!!
