Teething?

11 Jun

For the past few days, Timothy is not like himself. He fusses a lot, he often cries (I am really not used to him crying for no apparent reason!), his appetite went down noticeable (the only time he eats well is before bedtime – that can last for 30 minutes of active gulping!). He stretches out his arms, asking to be held (as well, quite unlike him… he likes his independence). He drools, chews his fists, and scratched his ears (he actually woke up with his right ear all covered in dried blood the other day – that’s how much he scratches). He often eats and then stops, crying. He doesn’t have fever and he poops and pees as usual.

I suspect teething.

I don’t feel like something major is wrong (after all, we just saw his ped last Wednesday). We shall wait and see. I hope it’s teething and the little tooth that bothers him erupts soon. I feel so sad when he cries and I can do nothing to soothe him 😦

    Well, Figlia has been drooling for a while now, though she does not seem irritable at all (she too started drooling around 4 months old).

    Drooling is nature’s way of cleaning the baby’s mouth.

    However, regarding the other things that you mentioned, I am not sure if they are all indicating teething…well, it won’t be long before you find out!

    Take Care!

    Hope he gets some relief pretty soon. Poor Timothy
