Soooo, how long does this teething go on?!

Ok ladies, my little man is 3 months, hes got both teeth coming, one has already cut the gum and the other is just under the skin... Its so exciting but hes mizzy and tempramental, hes never been like this so i guess its a little new... we've been so spoilt! Any other advice other than a teething ring?! (he doesnt seem to like it, he loves my finger but i cant sit next to him alllllllll day!)

  • Teething only lasts a couple of years. LOL. Ha, no don't sweat it too much, some kids suffer more with it than others, but the really rough times are only now and then , off and on for a year or so.

  • To answer your question, it goes on TOO LONG! I'm going through the same thing now, the tears and tantrums, the chewing, the dribble, the lack of eating! Feeling so helpless :(

  • It's never ending...at least feels that way. My first born had no troubles with teething. My 9 month old DS is having a horrible time. My pediatricians to give tylenol but only at bedtime so it's not bein over done and sleep comfortably. You could also try sugar free popsicles. Good luck. Hope I helped a bit.

  • Ah thanks ladies...
    I know we all have a hard time when they are not feeling great, it kills us mommies...Shame, i just try give him loads of love and kisses... :)
    Mason is doing much better, the one tooth has broken through nicely, hes still trying to chew everything he comes into contact with but at least hes not mizzy... :)
