  • For teething- try Hylands teething tablets or teething drops (has winnie the pooh on the box) they drops have helped my son, the tablets didn't help but many mommys swear by them.
    Eating- maybe she just isn't interested in baby foods. Probably not related to teething.
    My son wants his daddy too when he comes home from work. Or me if I were the one that was at work and he was home with daddy. It's great that she has a good bond with both her mom and dad... some many just want mommy.

  • Who knows why kids do the things they do? If she wants your hubby, then give her to your hubby. Take a break. Teething rings, teething tablets, baby tylenol, and something cold works. Eventually she'll get past this. Teething sucks, but she'll eventually get used to it and figure out her own way to sooth herself. My daughter was off and on depending on what tooth it was, but she would always figure out some way to sooth herself.
