Today ds got an expander with a tounge crib. He hates it! He cannot figure out how to eat with it, he cannot figure out how to talk with it, he is frustrated and just wants it out. He is crying and making me feel awful. He sucks his thumb, he is 9, and this if the solution. Add well as helping to close the football shape gap sucking his thumb has caused in his teeth. He cannot eat. What can i do toohelp him? How can he eat without it hurting or getting in the way? I want to cry too, i feel soso bad.i never had braces or anything, so i cannot understand, but i do not want him to have huge gaps in his teeth like i do, which is why we even did this. Help!!! My baby is frustrated..... :(
Edit: oh yeah, i am a monster now. On day the of extender and cage, he got a fever, ear infection, and now chills he can't stop. All bundled up i can't tell if he still has a fever or not. But family members look at me like a monster now, i did this to him and now he is sick on top of it. Being a mom isn't easy!!
