A Second Culprit!

I knew Pudd was teething and that of course was making him grumpy, but I felt something else was off too. This morning I called the Dr and took him in. I am glad I did, he has a bad ear infection! Thank goodness I went with my gut! He is now on Amoxicillan and I am waiting for the messy diapers to begin. No wonder he was so crabby! 4 molars and an ear ache! To all the Moms out there- How long do these Molars take? It seems like it's been weeks now!

Weeks is a good answer. I found with my crew that once they started to break through the skin the grumpiness started to ease up. I have had several molars that ended up looking pus-ish under the gum and that is normal as well. It goes away once they start breaking through. I think Lucy took about 2 months through the whole process. Hang in there. The second molars are no where near as bad!

Dr Rahman said there was some Bruising of the gums. I had never heard of that! One of the top ones is broken through, so I am hoping the others soon follow!

Will he eat yogurt? That always helped when mine had to take antibiotics. I hope his teeth come though quickly. Does he like to eat cold things. That might soothe his gums a bit if they are really sore.
