We had a VERY rough night last night. Eli would only sleep if Mommy was holding him. He kept grabbing his gums & screaming. He's been teething for a few weeks, but its getting worse. He's in so much pain & I can't do much but give him something to chew on & it breaks my heart.
Unfortunately, the only thing he really wants to chew on is me. I always try to nurse him when he's upset because it soothes him, but here lately all he does is chew, so I am very sore!
I really hope this teething doesn't last too much longer. My little Eli needs his sleep & so does Mommy! It is very hard to go to work when you only slept for about an hour! I guess we're lucky Daddy is a heavy sleeper so he still gets good sleep when Bubby is up screaming all night! (Yes I did just call Eli Bubby. I have no idea where it came from, it must be a combo of Bubba & Baby...but I have been calling him that since day 1!)
I hope he takes a good nap today!
