Got tooth?

I'm a bad mommy because we officially have a tooth that has broken through the gum and I didn't come here immediately and post about it! But there you have it, Spence officially has the beginnings of a tooth!

I first felt the tooth last week but getting him to show me was very hard work. I should have known something was up when he began acting a bit fussier than usual and getting him to eat solids was like going to battle! And the sleep...he fights it and when he does sleep he moans and groans and moves around keeping me on alert all night. But there has been no fever and no diarrhea and for the most part he's been quite the trooper.

On the occassions when he can't be consoled I reach for Hylands Teething Tablets. They are homeopathic and work like a charm! I find they are especially good just before attempting to coherce him to nap! They ease the pain and allow him to sleep more soundly. As a matter of fact just last week Daddy got him to sleep for 2 whole hours! I didn't know what to do with myself.

As soon as the tooth makes a full appearance there will be pictures! Let's hope all subsequent teeth are as easy as this one has been!
