7 1/2 mos DD has been really cranky lately. She got her two bottom teeth about 2 weeks ago. We figured we'll have a break before more teeth will start making their way into her mouth but...nope, a couple of days later, she was exhibiting similar behavior as she was with those two bottom teeth: chewing on her fists, increased salivation, crankiness. Today, I got a chance to take a good look in her mouth and I saw white spots on her bottom gums as I did with the lower bottom teeth. Does that make sense? Shouldn't she be getting her upper front teeth before she gets more on the bottom? Thank you for your input.
Yep, it sounds like she is teething again. 2 of my kids didn't follow the pattern they are "supposed" to get their teeth. My daughter had a lot more bottom teeth than top teeth for a long time. So I'm sure it's nothing to worry about.
Try giving her some teething tablets. They worked awesome for all of my kids!! And they loved the taste of them. You can get them at any drug store and some grocery stores carry them now.
Good luck and I hope they pop out fast!
I have been using Hyland Teething Tablets and they help DD also. I use them once in a while when I see that she's in a lot of discomfort. I'm very against meds and she's already on Prevacid for her reflux so I try my best to give her as little meds as possible.
