Wow this post feels like a long time coming. In fact I’ve been sat on the words I’d say for quite some time now as I thought (hoped) this would have came a long time ago.
I mentioned briefly in our seven month update that Archie had cut his first tooth, but I thought I’d go into a little further detail in it’s very own post – but hey, as it’s a major milestone in Archie’s life, doesn’t it deserve it?
Archie has been teething since he was only two months old, so you can only imagine our relief to finally have something to make all of the sleepless nights, teething pain and baby moodiness worth it. Literally nowhere is free from chewing – including his cot which he now likes to try and bite!
Oh how I have tried to take a photo of his little peg, but wrestling with a seven month old baby can actually be quite tough, so I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it.
Our top tips for relieving teething pain
- We applied teething gel onto Archie’s gums when he was only a couple of months old to relieve some of the pain for him.
- Once he was old enough, we moved onto giving him teething powder, which is much more effective than the gel and relieves pain almost instantly.
- Teething toys like our Link N Teethe, Gummee Glove and Matchstick Monkey have worked wonderfully to distract Archie from any pain but also have been great for him to chew on while he’s been suffering.
- We’ve found that since introducing solids into Archie’s diet he’s been able to relieve pain himself through chewing.
- I’ve been wearing my Two Gray Cubs teething necklace most days so that Archie can easily grab it and chomp down on with his gums.
How long was it until your little one cut their next tooth?
