Hello everyone! I am so excited to let you all know that bean #1 is expecting two beautiful white pearly teeth in the next few days. We are beside ourselves with joy.
After a lot of discussion we’ve decided to have an UT (unattended teething, for those of you not in the know).
My husband and I feel that humans have been teething for millenia and we know that humans were born to teethe and that our baby knows how to do it. We’ve done all kinds of research and are very informed. Our parents are not very supportive, they feel we should give him horrible chemicals to “treat” the perfectly natural sensations he’s experiencing but we know better.
We’ve decided to just let our son go with his instincts and allow him to chew on whatever completely natural items he can find on his own. He’s pre-mobile and so far hasn’t shown interest in finding things to chew on which means he must not be too uncomfortable. He’s expressing the sensations he’s experiencing beautifully and we feel so privileged to be a part of his support team. It’s been a few long and late nights, but everyone knows that you can’t rush teeth and they know when to erupt.
Have any of you decided to UT too? We’d love to hear your inspirational stories. This is a very special time for our family, supportive comments only please.
