My Poor Baby!

Ugh I am almost positive that any mother out there would agree that seeing your children , in pain or hurting in anyway is the worst! Well I think Brianna is teething, and man is she ever miserable! She has diarhea, and her little tush is just bright red :o( I have been using ointment on it, but it stil hurts and she just screams when I have to clean her up....Ugh I hate it! Then tonight, as if it wasnt bad enough that she is cranky and miserable and sore, she gets a runny nose......*long sigh* My other kids never had these symptoms when they were cutting teeth, but this is how it goes for Brianna. So I think tonight when Terry gets home I may run up to walkmart or Meijer and buy one ofthse handy dandy little mesh pacifier gems. We have used the wash cloth and the orajel....Now Im going to try one of these little doo dads, just another thing that wasnt around when the other kids were little. 
Anyway Im praying tonight for some relief for my poor baby, and a good nights sleep. There is nothing worse than a tired stressed momma, and a unhappy teething baby.....Calgon...Take me away!?

Micah is teething too - and it is AWFUL!!

Marj Cooley recommends Hyland's Teething Gel. I've not tried it, yet may pick some up next time we're in a Walgreen's or some such place. Micah really bites at his clothing though, so I may try a cool cloth next time and see if that helps at all. Poor guy - I usually end up going with Advil/Tylenol if he can't sleep.

Hope your lil' gal feels better soon ~ and you get some rest!

Oh, those little mesh things that you can put food in are awesome! I used to put cantelope and watermelon in them and Asher loved it! It was soothing to him and of course tasted yummy, so it was perfect. I got some good use out of those puppies.

So, Hadassah has the same rash problem with teeth that you described...horrible. The only thing that I found to work was Butt Paste that I bought at Meijer. It works, its a little bit more pricey than the others, but hey....you get to say you put Butt Paste on your kid....LOL.
