The poor guy has not slept from more than 2 hours at a time since Friday, which also means that I have not slept for more than that as well. He has been waking up every 10-20 minutes in pain. Last night I finally brought him into bed with me, and he slept pretty good all cuddled up but I don't sleep well this way, and I do not want him to get into this habit either.
We have tried Tylenol and Baby Orajel, and we are now trying out some natural Teething Tablets but nothing seems to help the poor guy. He enjoys chewing on a cold teether, but it only helps for a little bit. His face and ears are all scratched up from him clawing at himself due to the aches, and he has a stuffy nose now from all the crying. Not to mention the buckets of drool that he produces and coughs on. I feel so bad for him, and I am doing everything I can to keep him happy.
I don't see any teeth yet, but I am pretty sure they will be here soon. I HOPE!
If you have any ideas or remedies, I am all ears. Some friends mentioned Motrin, but its a blood thinner, and the Dr. says due to Sam's clotting issues and his young age, she would like me to steer clear of this until 6 months.
Poor baby! Lets get those chompers out and start being happy again.
UPDATE: Just got back from Urgent care to have Sam checked out. He is fine and healthy. He thought it would be hilarious to make a liar out of me so he played around in the hospital like nothing was wrong. What a turkey. I better get some sleep tonight.
