If you are a parent like me then you know that you will eventually get to this point in your life where your child starts teething . No, we are never ready for the simple things when it comes to children but hey we are all learning. We don’t just become the best parent overnight that would probably take a life time. Anyway let’s discuss the teething stage.

Is My Baby Teething?

Telling whether or not your baby is teething can be the easiest thing to figure out or the hardest being as though the symptoms do not show up in each individual baby but at lest one does.

Some of the symptoms that you might experience is,

  • Irritability
  • Interrupted sleep patterns
  • Swelling of the gums
  • Drooling
  • Loss of appetite
  • Rash
  • Mild temperature
  • Constipation, Diarrhea
  • Increased nibbling
  • Increased gum rubbing
  • Increased ear rubbing.

Now as I said all babies are different and may show little to no symptoms if you spot any changes in your little one this could be a reason.

How Long?

Well I’m sorry to that time unfortunately not on you side and so this will be a long term battle parents. I can say that it get’s better because later on down the line as they get older they will not be as fussy.

So your little one will have at least twenty pearly whites that will eventually come in over a period of two years during this time your baby will experience pain and irritation. This will only be due to your babies tooth breaking through the gum.

How long does it take to erupt?

The breakdown is simple the lower set tends to press through before the upper set. The first set of upper and lower molars begin to push through well erupt if you will, between the ages of 13 -19 months. Canine teeth erupt  in both the upper and lower jaws

Food for thought so perhaps your still feeling over whelmed don’t worry we are here to help take a deep breathe and lets dive into how you can stay sane through this process.

My sanity matters too

The constant crying can be something dreadful to hear after a couple of minutes let alone hour that when things can take a toll on you. We all look for things that can both benefit us as well as our children. In this situation if your thinking well what can I do. Well look no further the answer is here.

How can I soothe my baby while teething?

This is nothing big and although we as moms have a preference as to our little ones and nursing them back to health but I’m going to share some tips with you to make this easier for everyone.

  • Rub your babies gums (clean finger or moistened gauze pad your preference)
  • Chill Out. A cold spoon or a chilled teething ring can be a beneficial factor on keeping your baby comfortable
  • Hard Foods it makes nibbling all the more fun
  • Keep bibs on hand for those long drool days
  • Try over the counter remedy

Missing Tooth Blues

𝑳𝒐𝒐𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂 𝑻𝒐𝒐𝒕𝒉

Well guys today was a good day all the way up until Zanai had a melt down.

My sweet pea is always happy I love her smile it really brightens my day.

This was not a normal meltdown it was a Mommy My Tooth Meltdown! So it kind of started as a normal day, zani and I were just hanging out home when I am startled by a loud cry. “What is going on” I asked.

Mommy My Tooth!

What’s wrong with your tooth?

“It’s coming out, I need to go to the dentist so they can give me a new tooth because mine is falling out and I need a new tooth. Please Mom, daddy cant see me like this”.

What exactly do you say to that?

Wait what I mean come on what would be the most rational thing to say? Well in this case it’s my daughter so I am still kind of lost for words bare with me. Okay I got it lets call daddy, did anyone else catch that I used daddy a cover because I got stuck. The look on his face was priceless because she insisted after I said lets call daddy to call him through facebook.

Kids and Technology what are we going to do?

Losing Her Mind….

After talking to daddy she was in such a frantic state I didnt know what to say other than it will be okay sweetie. Did that make her feel better?

Nope, so what now?

Okay dad we’re gonna call you back. (Put my girl pants on) Okay look zani I have a story for you.

When we are little people we tend to lose our teeth it’s all a part of growing up. You may have lost this little guy buy you will have a new friend pretty soon.


So finally we have gotten to a point where she does in fact understand the process somewhat from how I explained it, Zuri shared her version as well. I am sad because I was so excited about taking birthday pictures but now our friend is gone. Oh well thats for a late post but welcome 5. Anyway I think she kind of liked zuri’s version better than mine but hey she’s not crying or having a tantrum so I think we are good for now.


We lost a tooth what can be more fun. Now we gotta wait for the tooth fairy to come.
