The terror of two year old teething

February 17, 2010 · 8 comments

We’re just passing through what will be our last experience with two year old molar teething.  I was up seven times last night (yes I count, can’t help myself).   I hate seeing them in so much pain – and I also hate not getting good sleep myself.  This to shall pass………..I reminded myself a thousand times today!  You’d think I’d be getting better at this after so much practice …… such luck.

such good advice from everybody. I know nothing about two year olds so may I suggest vodka?

You sound just like me.
My 2 have all their teeth now (thank God) but I always count how many times I get up, too.
And my manta is the same as yours, 'This too shall pass'…and it does, though it feels like it never will on the 7th 'get-up'.

PS I'm with Lucy, Nurofen!!

Thanks so much for the ideas! Nice to have some mummy support on my side. Good night last night. Think she was so tired from being so grumpy (and refusing her afternoon nap) that she zonked out. She didn't wake up until 6.00am – Blissful mummy 🙂

I'll throw another teether in there – Hylands Teething Tabs, from the chemist. Worked a charm for the bug. Hope it's over soon, teething sucks 🙁
