The Teething Monster

Every once in a while an unwelcome guest visits our house, every parent will know him. We call him The Teething Monster!



He's a horrible old thing who takes my lovely happy girl and replaces her with a dribbly, cranky gremlin child.

We've been quite lucky, The Teething Monster hasn't been around for a while. But on Sunday night he thought he'd pay us a visit, very kind of him. At 10.30pm Ava woke crying, nothing that I could do for the next hour helped. She didn't even want any of my mummy cuddles and pushed me away (which did hurt my feelings a bit I must say.) Ava has struggled with her teeth but some Nurofen or Calpol usually helps to settle her.

One of the things that I use to find indispensable when she first started teething was Ashton & Parsons teething powder and guess what? The discontinued it in Boots! WHAT?! Crazy right! It was clearly discontinued by a childless person. No parent in their right mind would discontinue such a gem. I miss it.

The Teething Monster is also full of germs and usually bring Ava a nice little cold or tummy bug to go with her poorly teeth. At the moment we have a stinking cold, horrible cough and atomic nappies. Good times!

I'm hoping that the Teething Monster goes soon and that I get my happy girl back.

I know!! I asked a while ago and they told me they'd stopped it. They never have it in my local Boots any more and it's always "out of stock" online. Gutted!!xx

Boots do their own brand powders - purple box with a yellow stripe at the top, about £4.99 I think - they've always worked for Aiden. I've recently been using abensol teething liquid too, which is quite good as well (got that at a pharmacy, which should also stock Ashton and Parsons!) xo

Thank you! You have possibly saved us from teething misery! I should really broaden my horizons and look further than Boots!!xx

My baby is teething at the moment too, he is usually pretty good but he's handling two at a time and it's awful! He also has a baaaad cold to go with and I hate teething nappies! But one look at those big red cheeks helps me forget how cranky he's being!

Oh the poor little darling! My son was the best teether ever - I didn't even notice when his 2 year old molars came through (CRAZY!) but my daughter is the same and suffers terribly with snotty noses and upset tummies. Poor little things! :( I just grabbed a swap spot for April - thank you! If you get a chance head over to my page and grab one for yourself, or if you don't get time let me know and I'll try and put it up for you!
