Next Week

There won’t be anything new up this weekend besides the TPODs, but next week should be interesting. Trixie’s erratic and grumpy sleep cycles are definitely the result of teething. The knobby, little bulges have been swelling under her gums for the past few days. Even though a toothed baby is easily 5 times as dangerous as a toothless one, we are all looking forward to Trixie rounding this corner.

Additionally, we have a brand new set of charts coming up Monday as we look at the history of our Diaper Leak Record. On a related note, only 11 more hours until we set a new record – keep your fingers (or in Trixie’s case, legs) crossed.

    Baby Tylenol may help her sleep a little more and make her a little less grumpy. I think that there is nothing cuter than those first little baby Chiclet teeth!!!

    So glad to see this posted – was going to email you or post about it – but didn’t know where it made sense to post – was wondering what the hell was up w/her sleep pattern, especially last night, and was also wondering what ever became of the teething thing. there’s something cosmic going on again at TTU.


    p.s. also was noticing the diaper leak record approaching, perhaps, a new record! We’re rooting for you

    We’re already doing the Concentrated Tylenol® Infants’ Drops. I think it’s helping a little, but she’s still pretty unhappy at times. We’re also trying ice wrapped in a wash cloth, frozen teether toys and Children’s Strength Baby Jack Daniels®.

    Hyland’s Teething Tablets and Gel. Some swear by them–I totally could not agree more. Pick some up at Whole Foods–they are homopathic teething materials!

    Lennon’s teether of choice during these rough times was a vibrating one from FirstChoice; i believe you can find it in just about every CVS or baby store. He never really cared for regular teethers or any cold/ice combo.

    Thanks for the suggestions. We’re going to go try some of them out.

    Congrats on the new leak record! Your OSHA insurance rates should decline with your excellent and ever-improving accident rate.

    Also, regarding teething, my suggestion is: grin and bear it, nothing works. Altho we never tried the children’s strength Jack Daniels – that might be the ticket.

    Speaking of diapers, is it just me, or has the diaper lifefime total been sitting on 1,898 for a while now?…just checking…
