Perhaps it’s not such a bad idea…just screw all this teething crap and buy the kid some falsies.
Well, back in reality here’s what’s going on. Sam has been teething for about 2 weeks now. She’s up ALL NIGHT LONG. Literally, waking every 2 hrs like a newborn. Finally I went to the pediatrician yesterday just to make sure something else wasn’t going on and guess what?
She’s got her first ear infection. Ugh.
Then as if that wasn’t bad enough I haven’t been giving her the correct dose of infant Tylenol. She’s quite a bit heavier since the last time we were there and it didn’t even cross my sleep deprived mind that she might need a different dosage. So basically for the last two weeks my baby (along with myself and husband and probably even the dogs) have been completely miserable because poor thing is cutting two teeth, has an ear infection and has basically been doing it without any pain meds. I feel SO guilty.
So you probably won’t hear from me too much this week, at least until the antibiotics kick in. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon. Hopefully.
