I’m certainly not one of those professional bloggers who have their blog posts planned in advance. Quite the contrary. At the moment I usually wrack my brain on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays as to what I could post on Sunday. And you know what, this week I just couldn’t come up with anything. Add to that a very busy weekend trying to get stuff sorted around the house and a teething baby who won’t play by herself for more then 5 minutes at a time.
I was told that after the bottom teeth have broken through, which has been the case for our little one, there will be a break before it starts all over again. But no, no break for us. We’ve gone from bottom teeth breaking through to top teeth making their way down. A tiny white spot can be seen already, not that this means it’ll be over soon, it might take weeks for those teeth to actually break through.
This means long days with lots of comforting and carrying – I’m glad I’ve got my sling and wrap – and even longer nights with lots of waking.
I would love to tell you about a great teething solution, but we’re just getting by with our frozen cucumber, lots of cuddles and breastfeeding until my nipples are sore even though I’m using a nipple shield.
I should probably try to get some more sleep while the little one is sleeping too, but I decided that I prefer to have a shower, write this post and postpone sleep until the afternoon when my daughter is hopefully having another nap.
