The joys of teething

Here’s how we know Eliza is teething:

  • she’s drooling like a rabid dog
  • she’s gnawing on everything she can get her hands on, including her own hands and ours
  • random fussiness and crying, very unusual for her
  • when offered a cold or frozen washcloth, she sucks on it like it’s the best thing she’s ever tasted
  • excessive saliva = more spit-up than normal
  • excessive drool, especially at night = little pimples on her face
  • excessive saliva = a weird little cough like an engine sputtering
  • Overall, our verdict is that this teething thing sucks (pun intended). I understand that it’s necessary, but it’s hard on poor little babies who have no idea why this is happening to them. Can’t wait to see a little tooth pop up, though. Problem is…it could be a month or two of this before we see any results!
