I figured we had solved the problem and didn't give it another thought. Then, this morning about 7 am (she usually wakes between 7:30 and 7:45) she started SCREAMING. We knew this was not a passy thing so we went to get her after 3 minutes or so (we wanted to make sure she wasn't just dreaming or something and give her the chance to go back to sleep). Well we brought her to our bed and laid with her and she STILL kept screaming. She was shoving everything in her mouth - her clothes, her hands, the blankets, our hands.... I thought "hmmm, runny poop and screaming yesterday, screaming this morning, shoving things in her mouth... teething?" I figured it wouldn't hurt anything to just try putting some orajel on her gums to see what happened. I'm telling you, the moment that stuff hit her gums she stopped crying. It was like the magic passy button or something. Anyway, what do you guys think? She is four and a half months old and has been drooling/chewing for a little over a month. I could also use some "its not so bad" talk since I am terrified.
Thanks readers! Look forward to hearing some age old remedies and moral support! hahaha.
