Teething Sucks

Man oh, man. I sure am eating my words when I said Rae never had a hard time teething. Her first eight teeth came in pretty quick, she never spiked a fever and for the most part she was still a happy baby. Let me tell you about these molars. They are a.. you know what. And I am most certain that if Rae could talk she would agree.

Is that not the saddest sight? It completely breaks my heart seeing her like this.

Saturday evening after we went out for a quick dinner we got back to the house and she felt so warm. I unclothed her and her warm body against my skin almost brought me to tears. She had a slight runny nose the past week and she started to really get really clingy which could only mean we had some teeth coming in. I checked her temp (rectally) and it ended up being 102.5.. I was scared. I tried a warm bath and it did bring it down a little. We spent the night cuddled up on the couch and thankfully she did sleep a little here and there in her crib, too. Times like these I am so thankful that I still nurse. She has been refusing solid foods for a few days now, but has been nursing much more frequent.

She woke up several times in the middle of the night and was still very warm, but when I took her temperature it was down to 100 degrees, which is normal rectally. The next day followed pretty much like the day before and the recliner became our spot to snuggle up and snooze on.

Thankfully today, we have no fever and she even ate some solid foods. YAY! She does have tiny red bumps on her belly and back that I am hoping is due to the fever breaking and/or teething. I've rubbed coconut oil all over her tiny little body in hopes that when she wakes up tomorrow morning it will all be gone.

Keep us in your prayers!
