First were the two lower centers, then the fangs, and now the middle top two have decided to make their debut.
She really is a cute toothy monkey until it comes time for a snack.
It's not that she's biting but with a mouthful of chompers, the angles at which she chooses to suck are quite painful. So what's a mom to do? 9.5 months into and it seems a shame to stop now. We have proudly avoided formula thus far. Not that there is anything wrong with it but since we are just a few months away from cow's milk, it seems pointless to introduce it now. Plus, nursing is still totally soothing to her.
At first it was a real bonding experience but now that she is all over the place. It seems that she barely has time to savour what she is sucking. Aside from pre-nap/bedtime, her snacks are a game of on and off, drops of milk streaming down her cheeks, leaving mommy in slight pain in the process.
The early days of nursing were hard enough and I imagine weaning will be just as tough. So what's a mom to do in the interim?
I wonder if they make baby sized mouth guards...
