Breastfeeding and Teething

Breastfeeding and teething are topics that are covered quite a bit in articles and via parenting sites. We usually talk about the two separately to cover all the issues that can crop up but I think sometimes we overlook the fact that teething can impact breastfeeding.

Just when you think you’ve overcome the latch issues, you’ve got your boobs balanced out perfectly, you’ve learnt how often you need to change your breast pads and you have a good natural rhythm with your little treasure, they begin to sprout those teeth!

The Perfect Bedtime Routine for Your Teething Baby

As you know, a teething baby is hard work at night time. The pain tends to wake them more often, their ears can ache when laid down, nappy rash can make turning over uncomfortable and you will certainly know about it if a tooth decides to cut in the early hours! It’s tough. I am experiencing it all over again and it is just as bad the second time around. However, Continue reading “The Perfect Bedtime Routine for Your Teething Baby”

What’s in my Teething Essentials Kit?

You may have noticed by now that I have a big bugbear… it’s teething! From the moment my first son began until his last molar eventually erupted, I despaired. The pain, the crying, the endless symptoms, the sleepless nights, all for 20 little teeth which will fall out anyway! I’ve enjoyed having the break from it all these last couple of years but now the second one is suffering just as badly and I have found myself immersed back in the world of teething and remembering exactly why I wrote my book in the first place!

Review: Teething Solutions with Amber Pumpkin

Teething has to be one of the worst parts of having a baby. It can begin from the moment they are born and last for three years, what other development stage lasts that long?! With the experience of having an early teether the first time around, I knew I would have my work cut out for me the second time around too.

And I was right, William is also an early teether, Continue reading “Review: Teething Solutions with Amber Pumpkin”
