Vampires are cool... especially when their fangs would slighty show when they talk so matter-of-factly, cold but full of mystery. Imagine Mick St. John of the TV series Moonlight, that was unfortunately cancelled after less than a year due to poor critics received. It was really unfortunate for me because I loooove the series. and Mick St. John is one of the cutest vampires I've seen. I would say hottest vampire too but my husband reads my blog so I'd skip saying that :-D
But on fangs Little Spanish Pinay? No fun! Her fangs or canine teeth as its proper name, are cutting through for it seems like a month already! Then to make matters worst, both lower canine teeth have also started to cut through! Poor LSP, when it gets really tough, she's cry with her whole fist stuffed in his mouth. And then yesterday, she woke up with a fever. Last night we woke up at around 5am with her on 39ºC. I gave her paracetamol to help the down the fever. She's especially irritable through the day but she still keeps her humor. She'd sing and dance and would play with me. But then from time to time, all of a sudden she would start crying for no apparent reason and would stuff her fingers inside her mouth or he would be touching her teeth with her fingers and then drool all over her. It's tough to see her go through this but there's really nothing much I can do but double the affection and attention and love I can give her.
She woke up with 38ºC fever today but the smile is still indispensable
Frozen delights help her sooth the pain so sometimes we'd let her chew on some popsicles. Paracetamol is my other option if I see her really bothered by her teething. There are also gels that can be brought from the pharmacy but it's not really recommended by pediatricians. And there's this latest hip: amber teething necklace/bracelet/anklets. It is supposed to work as a natural analgesic when it comes in contact with human skin. Healing stones are becoming popular these days. I have no idea how effective they are but I am not closing the possibilities either. So, if desperate measures come, I might have to try this... I'd do anything to ease LSP's pain even for just a little.
Anyone who has experience on trying this amber teething necklace? Any postive result?
