Baby Blues / Teething

Oh no we are not settling, week 15 and teething is really beginning to set in now, the dribbling is constant and baby K is chewing on almost everything.  I noticed she has been even more clingy and wanting constant attention from me this week.IMG_2242  Getting her off to sleep in the evening has been challenging but luckily she is almost sleeping through the night, with just one short wake for nappy change and quick feed.  Yesterday she slept almost all throughout the day.  Her mood has been really low and she just wants to be held all the time when she is awake.  Nothing seems to settle her until she finally falls asleep, until then she is constantly clingy.

The only thing that seems to comfort her is rubbing  the soles of her feet gently as much as I can and this has the effect of comforting her.  She is more wanting to breastfeed during the day and not only on waking and before her night time sleep, as has been her usual routine for the last few weeks.  So rubbing up and down the reflex zones on the soles of her feet and breastfeeding seem to be doing the trick in keeping her calm and content during this phase of initial teething.  She is not so keen on the organic formula milk at the moment and choosing breastfeeding instead !

No thank you, only breastfeeding will do
