Thank the Lord above for friends who are also dentist. My friend Jill was over last night to borrow some baby items for her new little one that is on the way and she observed Elliot in one of her teething meltdowns. Luckily for us, Jill is a dentist and was prepared with a new treatment I had not tried yet. As you know as a faithful blog reader of mine...we have tried EVERYTHING. So what harm would one more thing cause? The best it could do is help right?
Well, help it did! She told me to rub liquid Benadryl on her gums. It taste better that Orajel, so she would be more willing to let me do it, and it numbs the gums on contact. Literally with in a split second Elliot stopped crying and started smiling at us. WHERE HAS THIS REMEDY BEEN ALL MY LIFE???
So for all you mom's out there, give it a try. If anything, you all might get a little extra sleep out of the deal!
