9 month old teething/mind changing

Theresa - posted on 11/13/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have a 9 month old. She is teething big time. I love this little girl and she is my world. i hate seeing her in pain like this. This phase is so hard and being a stay at home mom is a bit hard at times. Which I'm sure is always hard at times. Now, this phase has made me second guess having a second child. Am I a bad person? I've always pictured myself with 2 or more kids. People do it all the time so it can't be too too bad. I just don't really know what to do. I know it'll pass and it will get better but it's so hard. I just sit and cry when she's going to bed and screaming and fussy all day. I don't know what to think or what to do. I've tried everything. Nothing seems to work. I would like to know how some other moms out there deal with it. I feel like a bad parent & selfish.

It's normal to not want to see your child in pain! It would make u a bad mother if u didn't feel anything! I have three kids so I've already dealt with the teething 2 times over and yes it sucks more the first time then the second because by then you have some idea of what to expect and what to do don't let it tun you off from having another baby because they're are so many times when they are happy and have fun that they do remember don't let this one little thing ruin it I mean do you remember screaming and crying your eyes out when you were teathing? Did it ruin your life? No I bet you don't but your mother probably does lol try icey teething rings,bonjela distractions!!! And ice cubes with like apple sauce or jam on the top (to make it appeal to her) it is normal and it will b okay although that doesn't help you now! Stay strong,she will still loe you just as much and it will pass ,then she will have a nice set of teeth to prove it!! :)

Feel free to message me if you'd like to chat! :)
