I`ve been reading... again... and discovered that `teething` and `getting teeth` are a little different.
Recently Aiden has some of the symptoms of teething; he drools a lot, he is fussy, he is trying to put his hand in his mouth during feeding, he is chewing/sucking on his hands a lot, and he is sleeping more during the day and waking up more often at night. Interestingly he is liking hugs a lot more too (that`s a bonus for me because usually he wants to sit independently or try to stand up, and doesn`t like being held or hugged too much).
According to numerous websites, teething can begin between 3-6 months, although usually teeth don`t start growing until the age of 4-5 months.
Do any of you mums out there have similar experiences? I have read of lots of ways to ease the pain of teething, (frozen washcloths, chew toys etc), but Aiden doesn`t seem to be in pain just yet. Maybe I will wait and see how it plays out.
Have any of you tried amber teething necklaces? They seem like a nice natural alternative!
