My New BFF

Mary Connor's poor little gums have been causing her a lot of pain and making her wake up during the night...not good for any of us.  We have tried the natural teeting tablets- I couldn't even get them to dissolve.  We have tried orajel, but she can't stand the way it tastes and makes the most pitiful face.  Several people have mentioned a teething lotion that was developed by a pediatrician in town, so we decided to give it a try.
Sound the music

Seriously, this stuff is magic in my book.  She has slept 13 hours for the past 2 nights and is napping her normal amount during the day. That equals a very happy momma!
The lotion has iodine in it and says it will stain clothing, so being the paranoid person that I am, I woke up from a dead sleep at 3a.m. (and then woke Todd up) to discuss whether or not it was going to stain her teeth whenever they do decide to make an appearance.  He loves when I do that, by the way.  The pharmacist has assured me that it won't and besides, I'm so happy to see her back to normal that I might just risk it.

Glad you found something that is doing the trick. hahaha waking up in the dead of night worried about a possible iodine stain is something I would totally do. Too funny.

Good to know I'm not alone! Why do these thoughts come at such random times?
