A definite design flaw!
It’s teething season in our house again. Why is cutting teeth just so hard? I think I jinxed us last week when I noticed that Little Man had cut a new tooth with no fuss whatsoever. Such a difference to the first six teeth, each of which lost us a couple of weeks of sleep. Anyway, when I saw that new tooth last week, I was overjoyed. You see Little Man had cut that tooth in the middle of one of the best month’s of sleep we’ve ever had with him.
But all good things must come to an end, because it looks like that one tooth was just a fluke. Maybe it found a weak spot in his gum to break through! You see this week, he seems to be cutting one or two more teeth, and we’re back to sleepless nights. To be fair to him, Little Man is not actually waking, but he’s moaning and restless in his sleep, and it’s keeping us awake! And if I’m not getting sleep, then it counts as a sleepless night in my book!
Last night we resorted to Calpol at about 1am, and he slept fairly well for about four hours after we’d administered it. Tonight he starting crying in his sleep soon after we put him down, so we’ve given him Calpol already, and he seems to be sleeping more soundly now. Fingers crossed it lasts all night, because I’ve been getting used to our good nights of sleep and I’m not willing to give them up again without a fight! Poor Little Man – he’s not even half way there yet when it comes to cutting teeth.
