the eric update – day 306: beware the teething monster!

jeeez, louise. if odin’s central incisors pop through this evening it’ll be none too soon. frozen washcloths, teethers and gum massages are doing little at this point to alleviate his irritation.

and while he’s relatively content while he’s awake to maintain a steady-state of manageable irritibility, his naps and nightime sleeping have pretty much fallen apart. quickly.

perhaps benzocaine salves like anbesol or orajel are a short term solution? on the downside, more then one resource advices against oral anesthetics because they can numb the throat and cause choking.

then again, maybe it’s time to rub a little whiskey on his gums. joking!

as always, anecdotes and advice are encouraged.
