The situation is ironic. Two weeks ago, I was at the point of seeking medical advice because Fern hadn't grown any teeth for a good 6 months. I knew she should be developing more teeth, and I was worried there was something wrong. Be careful what you wish for.
Almost overnight, everything changed. My sunny, vivacious little girl because miserable. She wouldn't sleep. She wouldn't eat. She started drooling. Her face broke out in an evil rash. She got two ulcers on her tongue. And she was clearly in terrible pain.
I tried kids Panadol. I tried kids Nurofen. I tried Bonjela. I gave extra hugs. I offered warm milk when she wouldn't eat. I got up 5 times in the night to help settle her back to sleep. I gave her a teething ring. A washer. A gel teether.
But none of it was of any use. At all.
She's exhausted and miserable. I'm exhausted and miserable. Her dad is exhausted and miserable. And we feel powerless and unable to help her!! We want our little girl back!
Bloggy friends, if you have been through this and have any advice you can lend to us, we'd be so grateful. Is there anything I could do that I havn't already? How LONG will Fern (and us!) endure this?
