Ash at 7 months

She's really active nowadays and she's starting to show stranger anxiety. She can sit up without much help. She grabs everything she can reach and puts it in her mouth.

She has 4 teeth visible. 2 upper central and 2 lower central and she's showing symptoms of teething again!
1. Feeding less frequently and amount.
2. Crying and whining a lot more when she's normally a happy baby.
3. Fever-like temperature.
4. More drool.
Xylogel: A bubble-gum flavored natural teething oral gel with 5% xylitol.

Xylogel, unfortunately, did not help. It doesn't seem to alleviate any pain or discomfort she might be feeling. The only thing that does help is breastfeeding often, I think it hurts a lot less than sucking on a silicone nipple and I think she's comfort nursing as well. Paracetamol for infants also helped, I give it to her before bed so she can sleep without waking up crying every now and then.

    1. Don't worry, it's not uncommon. Teeth can come out as late as 12months! :)
