Teething Woes

Mum totally didn't expect me to get teething pain because I've been fed gripe water since I was 4-5 months. It's like holy water (not really but you catch my drift?) to teething babies but apparently it doesn't work on SOME babies and I'm one of them! I have older twin cousins and they were fed gripe water like I was and they didn't get any teething pain and Mum's sister swore on gripe water for their painless teething period!

High fever of 40C for 4 nights + Vomitting for 3 days + Loss of Appetite + Red Swollen Gums = Sick Me + Sleepless Mum + Sensitive Dad (x 10)

You can figure out how the house was with the above summary of my teething woes. Incase you're wondering, I've 5 teeth trying to pop out of those gums at the same time. I slept a lot after meds and antibiotics but the ones who had to stay awake to look after me was worse for health (mentally!!). Mum took two days off work and then came the weekend so we both got the much needed rest and love. I got better by Saturday but woke up to find horrible red rashes all over my face and body. Oh Great!...NOT!!

Mum took me to the doc and she said that the rashes were an automatic reaction to my high fever who got too comfy in my body and decided to over-stay. A dash of calamine lotion everyday, made the rashes go away!

I'm back to my happy self to the relief of Mum & Dad. They just worry too much. If I could've said it aloud, Mum would've said, "Wait till you have your own kids!!" - a famous sentence of her Mum tattooed in her mind, which I'll be hearing it for years to come.

hahaha...Ash, that's all mom's love!!
Actually the lil kid like you experience the same on that age...
but your mom and dad were worrying you too much..., but you dont need to speak it out loudly...coz it would make your mom hurt.. and will yell like this : "Wait till you have your own kids!!"

Hope you'll more better now, Ash!!
have a nice day.

I'm glad it was just temporary, but I understand that it was hurting. Understandable to complain a bit. :)

I'm glad the fever's gone. Wow, 40oC --that's pretty high!

I got Z an amber teething necklace that she wears every day (the one you see in all her pics). I don't know if that had helped (no teething woes that I can remember), but it's pretty. Heh.
