    Help What could this be??

    Advertisements
    My LO has been a Mr. grumpy pants for the past week, but the past two days have been brutal. At first I thought he was teething (he's been teething for the past month, the doc confirmed that) but now I'm not so sure that's the reason for his crabbiness. He's had a lot of the classic teething signs for the past month or two but no teeth, the doctor confirmed they were there and probably just shifting and taking their sweet time to come through. He told me to us orajel and tylenol if it got bad. Well, this week it got BAD. So I started using the orajel (tylenol only if he's really bad at night) and for the first few days it helped but yesterday and the day before they didn't do squat.

    He's been screaming, and screaming... and clingy. He won't let you put him down at all. And god forbid you put him down while he's sleeping... it is not pretty if he wakes up bc you put him down (which you can imagine does not make for good nights...) His appetite is decreased, he eats the same amount of his solids, but he'll only really take bottles at night. he doesn't even want to chew on the nipple of the bottle. He isn't running a fever, or showing any signs of a cold. I'm at a loss, idk what's going on and I'm about to loose it. Last night was sooo bad and i was all by myself for most of the night I eventually just had to lay him down and see if he'd cry himself to sleep and I never do that... needless to say when my dad got him he rocked him to sleep and held him until I could pull myself together again. it's been that bad. Idk what to do anymore. help??

    not at all. we haven't tired a new food in 2 weeks. that was my first thought too, I haven't even tried the sweet potatoes I made yet. I'm too afraid too! I'm afraid anything new will just make it worse.

    Also, orajel didnt do anything for his teething. Teething tablets worked, and so didnt tylenol.

    If he is under 6 months, only tylenol should be used.

    Oh, okay. Sorry, I didn't know that. Teething tablets do work great though.
