Are we sprouting a tooth?
I have been posting on my facebook status all the changes I have been having with Thomas. Lately...he has not been my usually relaxed child. He is irritable, restless, moody, easily aggravated, can't get settled, isn't sleeping, isn't allowing mommy to sleep, etc. He wants a bottle and then once he has it refuses it. I finally gave in and gave him some Tylenol last night which allowed him to rest a little better. He is still not eating cereal so he has started "requesting" a bottle around 3am. Maddy on the other hand is sleeping like a rock. She loves her cereal and is ready to move forward. We are still trying to get Thomas to eat so we are patient. I have changed from rice to oatmeal, added applesauce, bananas, etc. I don't think it has anything to do with his not liking it but that he still has the thrust reflex and just pushes it out. Again....we are just being patient. I do believe all these changes are due to teething as he is chewing and drooling so much more lately. I made them both homemade teethers yesterday......an ice cube in a baby bath cloth...they loved it! I would appreciate any stories, words of advice, suggestions, etc. Thanks!!!! P.S. Please don't hold it against me.....I did give my son the pink washcloth.....I was a bit distracted!
