I’ve been seeing little signs that Aria is starting to teethe for about a week or two but its getting real! Ms. Teething Aria has been a little drool monster for about a week (is is weird that I think that her drooling is adorable?), on the one crazy day she would drink 2 oz. of milk every 1 to 1.5 hours, now she only does that a few times a day and always goes back to normal at night. But when she wakes up you would have thought she just woke up from the craziest nightmare (during the day and during the night)! So I try to be ready to feed her ahead of time.
I was a little worried about her eating so little during the day. I found that bringing a bottle of breast milk with us when I go to change her diaper is good because she is so focused on me when I change her diaper that sometimes she keeps on drinking to make the total for that feeding 3 to 4 ounces!
She loves her teething toys…and sometimes grabs the buckle on her highchair while I strap her in to chew on it, she also loves her index finger (I’m hoping she forgets her thumb all together haha). I’m going to try freezing half damp baby wash cloths so that she has something chewy, cold, and soothing to easily grip onto the mom frozen half and have at it since she’s always gripping by clothes and the burp cloth. My sister-in-law also suggested milk popsicles! Super fun and cute!
I’m definitely a little worn out. Always Yesterday I poured a little bit of orange juice in my cereal! Thank you Tropicana for making your jugs white haha…not tired mommy friendly. I just said oh well and poured some milk in; strawberry plus orange Honey Bunches — adds character 😛
