We officially switched Clive full time to his new daycare. He's thriving there and no more tearful handoffs in the morning. So refreshing! He will still have a month off, but will start again in August

Has anyone tried the amber teething necklaces? Do they seem to help?

Gabe is popping out teeth like a baby shark lately (8 in the past 2 months).

Also, how to dissuade teething babies from biting while they are nursing? I've tried lightly tapping his nose, and I've tried blowing gently in his face. He is surprised and stops the first time, but he tries again. Painful!

We have an amber teething necklace. I wouldn't bet it helps with the pain (although it might, she's not very fussy) but it seriously reduced her drooling during teething so that alone was worth it. Plus they're cute as heck.

I stopped breastfeeding before teeth, but general consensus of the mommy and me group is give them one warning "ouch!" Or "no!" Firmly, and if they bite again, end the nursing session. Put them down, turn away, etc. Repeat this until they realize biting = ending the nursing session.

I'm absolutely loving toddlerhood!

I don't like the trapped wind/stomach pains this baby causes me! Not sure what sets it off, but it HURTS!

In other news, apparently it can hear now so I'm gonna be talking to it a lot. And looking mad as I don't look pregnant at all. Just chunky!

Hannah had her first sleep over tonight with some friends in the neighborhood. They had a great time. Dress up, make up, hair chalk, movies, snacks, etc. only one crisis. The air mattress sprung a leak lol so we had to improvise. Moved the mattress onto the floor and piled up the boxspring with blankets to make it comfortable. We had to fit three girls and the bed itself is a single. It seems to be working out. They are sawing logs now lol.

How did she grow up
So much and so fast that we are now hosting slumber parties? Lol

16 teeth at a year and no complaints. Maybe she's just a good teether or maybe the necklace helped.

For biting, I agree with MM, though if I had said "ouch!" Ev laughed and thought it was a game. When she bit I would calmly tuck m breast away, calmly say "No biting, that hurts mama" and set her down on the floor. Then try again in a few minutes. Also, I took it as a sign that she was uncomfortable so I would give Advil.

Oh, also, it appears that Ev is well and truly growing up. She now STTN in her own crib and only nurses once a day on average. Huge sigh.

I never really had to deal with biters but Cian did try it once or twice. But yes, basically a quick lesson in consequences, when you bite, the milk goes away. Keep it very calm and simple.

The amber necklaces, they did seem to work for me. Nothing miraculous or anything but kind of a steady low key influence.
