Teething & sleepy..

Can teething make my little one extra sleepy? She took a very out-of-character 3-hour long nap this morning, has just been so fussy, took another hour-long nap early this afternoon, and has just fallen asleep again! In between she's talkative & smiling, so I'm not very worried. I just feel bad, she's not herself...

  • When you are in pain do you sleep more? My LO sleep more, is fussy, and doesn't eat like normal when she is teething. Try giving a little something for pain and letting your LO chew on or gum an ice cube. It will make them feel better. We actually squirt a little Chloroseptic on the gums and it numbs better than orajel and isn't as potentially dangerous. Orajel can actually kill the nerves that run to the teeth.
