The Tooth is Out!

After a couple of suffering weeks, my baby's teeth were finally out last at 6 months and 8 days. Two of her lower teeth showed up this afternoon, I thank God because she didn't had a fever, only last December 18, just an irregular bowel movement. Her pediatrician had told us that it will happen because Yna will frequently suck her fingers (or hands!) to rub her gums to lessen the itchy feeling.

I was able to help her by putting on xylogel on her gums to lessen the feeling of irritation while she's waiting for her tooth to come out. At the same time, I always brush her gums using a gauze pad wrapped carefully around my pointer finger. It helps in massaging her gums while removing the milk stains.
