That Pesky Teething Stage

My daughter, Mia, is a vibrant, happy, outgoing 11 months old who happens to have 5 teeth coming in at once! Yes, you read that right, at once. However, during her teething stage she is more like Angelica off of, The Little Rugrats. For example, just last week she went 3 days without sleeping. Meanwhile, I still had my teenage sisters’ playoffs and championship games to attend along with a thousand other responsibilities. (We won the championship by the way, go Panthers).
Alright, now stay on topic, oh yes; Anyhow, mean less to say I was literally dead to the world. I noticed that she had all 4 top teeth coming down at once prior to this event and then I saw it. That pesky little rigged, sharp white glacier coming up out of her bottom right side gum. Now in the meantime, Dave, (my better half/her daddy), was helping me as much as he could with working 60 hours a week.
So here I am, exhausted with a screaming baby who will not stop crying whom, is having this exorcist vomit-like diarrhea running everywhere, along with running a small fever. I decide to give her some Tylenol and it did help bring down her fever and subside her pain for about an hour. Might I add that was a beautiful hour of silence! During this time, I was at all wits end and did everything I could think of and nothing was working. I reached out to other mommy friends who suggested the Oral gel, Organic Oral Gel, Teething tablets (which are now on recall), teething ring, teething toys and none of it worked. During my endless efforts to soothe my baby girl, I was running out of options until One friend mentioned a frozen baby rag or waffle. I was a little skeptical but also to the point where I figured, it couldn’t hurt to try. Well, what do you know, the frozen rag worked AMAZINGLY. Shout out to my mommy friends!
Here is how it works: Take a soft baby rag that you use for bath time (correction: “A soft [clean] baby rag”.) Just Kidding, you knew that. Run the rag under cold water, place the rad in the freezer for approximately 5-10 minutes. I want to add, when placing in freezer try to lay it flat or it will be hard to chew on it bunched up. After your time is up pull out and hand to baby. Watch the drool-fest begin! While, I am full aware that everyone always has advice; it is like an a**hole everyone has one. I am also aware that not all options for children is a one size fits all. Some believe in medication and modern medicine; others believe in more organic approaches. Never the less, what works for one mom does not mean it will work for you; it is trial and error and using your best judgement. However, I wanted to share the frozen rag experience and how it did work for me. For every mom out there just know, you are not alone. Hang in there and it does pass, in the meantime try your hardest to stay sane. Have a beautiful day!
