It can't be that bad right?

Teething. It can't be that bad right? Wrong. Very wrong. The way Siena cried last night, I halfway expected to wake up to a whole new Siena with a full set of teeth. But no, just the one. Is this how it's going to be for all of them?
This is how I feel..and I'm sure how Siena feels too, poor thing. I

found this picture here.

For those who don't know, we live in a one bedroom apartment and therefore Siena sleeps in our room. Well she started crying even before we got in the room to go to sleep. I got her up and gave her some tylenol. Man do I wish Tylenol lasted longer. She woke up crying after a few hours and cried about every 5-10 minutes. I got up and got her some more Tylenol, but when I got back in bed I could not get back to sleep. Before I knew it, Joel's alarm was going off for him to go to work, which I have no clue how he's going to survive the day!lol he's not a nap taker..however I think that after last night he just might become a believer.

Any tips or tricks anyone? I don't know what else you can really do besides Tylenol, but if you know something I don't, please let me know!


p.s. Only 3 more months of sharing a room with Siena! We can do it!


  1. Teething IS pretty awful. For Lilah, after the first few ones, it started to get a little better. It's almost like she got a little used to the pain, as sad as that sounds. Tylenol is great; you can also alternate that with Ibuprofen. And teething gel (Baby Oragel), helps A LOT! They have two different formulas for daytime and nighttime- the nighttime one has a higher concentration of the medicine in it. It's worth a try. It gives them more of an immediate relief.
