About 6 weeks ago (when Maletch was 3 1/2 months old) he began showing signs of teething. Everybody told us that even though some babies start teething that early, we shouldn't expect anything to start coming in until around 6 months of age. Then about 2 weeks ago (age 4 1/2 months), what was obvious discomfort- turned into- completely unbearable pain for him. None of the remedies were working anymore and poor Maletch was miserable! So it was time to break open the Baby Ora-Gel and Tylenol. When I went to rub the Ora-Gel on his gums, guess what??- my finger ran over something very sharp! Yep- his first tooth had already broken through his gums! So that explained the increased pain- the tooth was cutting through!
It won't be long now before he will be flashing everybody his pearly whites- OK maybe just one pearly white for now! It is one of his upper front teeth.
Anybody that has a baby timetable chart- just might as well throw it away right now because Maletch clearly has his own!
