...and the teething continues.

Ugh...teething is no fun! We haven't seen anything pop through yet, but Ollie has been crabby and miserable for the past week or so. We started using Hyland's Teething Tablets and absolutely love them! They seem to calm the restlessness and make him more comfortable, plus they're all natural so I'm not putting chemicals in my baby.

Another great tip that I got from an elderly lady at church is this: Take a large carrot out of the fridge and wash/peel it. Cut a length of at least 4" and give to baby to chew on. (Make sure the carrot is fat enough that baby can't break off a piece--and make sure to supervise) We used an organic carrot, and he loves it! What a cheap, earth-friendly way to deal with teething!
