FINALLY!!!!!! Even though most of you moms that have already experienced this will probably tell me I am crazy. Kaylee is finally getting teeth. Okay 1 tooth. I am so happy though. I know it is good the longer they are under the better the teeth but it is so hard when it comes to food. She doesn't eat baby food anymore. And finding foods that we eat that are appropriate for her is not an easy task these days. She wants everything that we are eating. And that is not always easy with no teeth. So I may be insaine for being happy but I am happy she is finally getting them. I also am glad cause I feel like she is behind when it comes to that. She is 10 months old. I know many her age and younger that have almost a mouth full of teeth. I know she really isn't behind but it just feels like it. So far we have had one bad nite and whiny crabby. I am sure I will be eating my words about this subject sooner than later.

So to the moms out there your advice with teething would be greatly appriciated.

You'll have to ask Laura for sure, but Sean was like 14 months old before he got his first tooth, and look at him, he's just fine!

Every child has his/her own milestones. You can't stress out too much about her being "behind". Especially when it comes to things out can't do anything about like teeth!

As far as knowing when Onna was teething, most of the time I never really knew for sure. She was such a sickly little thing with her asthma, that it was hard to tell when she was being crabby because of teeth, or if it asthma, or ears, or something completely different! Thankfully that stage is just about over!!

Teething tablets work really well for Caymen.
