Symptoms will be different for every baby as will be the severity in which they get them. Some babies will sail through the teething period like it’s a breeze. Others will really suffer. This may be because some babies’ pain threshold is higher than others, or because some babies’ teeth come through easier, without as much impact on their gums. Who knows!
There are certainly no rules for teething, but as a general rule these are the most likely symptoms a teething baby will experience…..
It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction when it comes to what we can and can’t eat during pregnancy. You hear old wives’ tales, information from different countries which can often be different to our guidance, and stories from different generations about ‘back in our day…'
And it can be confusing!
I haven’t met a mum yet who doesn’t worry about her parenting skills or sometimes believe that she’s not good enough for her children.
Personally speaking, I probably think about my role as a mum at least half a dozen times a day. Becoming a better mum is what I always aim to be and yet it’s so incredibly hard at times isn’t it?
Congratulations you’re going to be a Mummy!
Do you suddenly have the urge to clean out the garage and rearrange the kitchen cupboards? Yep – I did!
If you have suddenly started wanting to organise your home (and your life) then it’s safe to say you are NESTING!
Around twelve hours after my first child was born, I can still remember the utter panic I felt when visiting hours were finally up for the day and my husband, together with my big sister, stood up to leave the maternity ward.
My heart pounded and my mouth went dry as the enormity of looking after my new daughter - beautiful but tiny and totally reliant on me to keep her alive - hit me like a ton of bricks.
