Teething Baby!

so my daughter is teething, she isn't crabby just a slight fever and very talkative, but I give her the orajel and acetaminophen(tyenol) and she wakes up like every hour on the hour, I can't function on 1 hour of sleep, also my husband is deployed so I am doing this alone till early dec, when he comes home I been doing everything since she was born he only spendt 9 days with her before he had to fly out, Dang Marines! lol? but is there something else I can do to get some sleep?

-TIA Amy

  • Have you tried the teething tablets? Ask your pharmacist about them and he/she will point you in the right direction.

  • Experiencing the same thing. I'm afraid if you don't have a mom/grandma who you trust to look after your LO while you catch up on a few hours of sleep, then you're just gonna have to tough it out. My DH doesn't get up for her anymore and I'm also running on empty. Good luck, mama
