Teethers 101 – All about our favourite teething toys

Somewhere in her third month, V2 was extremely fussy three evenings in a row. Now, as a second time mum, I’m much more relaxed and accepting of scenarios like this. But something seemed uneasily familiar about this and I checked her gums. Sure enough, those whitish shadows greeted me. V2 was teething! 


Teething signs

Here were some simple signs that I looked out for.
1. She was fussier than usual and it was not because of temperature, hunger, sleep, etc
2. V2 kept sticking her fist into her mouth all the time.
3. Drool all over the place, it looked like there was a tap open somewhere.
4. Difficulty sleeping- she would take longer to sleep, and keep waking more often than usual.

Obviously, giving V2 food sticks to calm her was out of question. I started scouting for teethers.
