No.7 & No.8

Sarah lost her appetite these few days. She drinks not more than 8oz of milk in a day. Every three hours, she only sips maybe 1 or 2 oz of milk. Besides, she also had interrupted sleep at night. She likes me to cuddle her a lot, and will show her impatient & frustration at times.

Yes, these signs are obvious, I have a feeling that she is growing another tooth. After a checked on her gum, it is confirmed that she is having teething problem these few days.

This time, she has 2 upper lateral incisors. No wonder she feels so much discomfort and cranky.

As parents, we are experienced enough to recognise the symptoms of teething and knowing exactly what is happening; now I just need to do something to make her teething a less painful one.

Hang on there, Sarah.

Poor Sarah. When she get used to the discomfort everytime she cuts her teeth, it will be better. Shower her with more love and she will be herself again soon. :)

This is the hard time for us. Try to feed her with spoon.

Dear all mommies, feeling touched when saw alot of encouragement and comments from you all..Thanks ya.
Actually today Sarah is feeling much more better. She can drink quite alot of milk. A big relief for me.

Michelle, Nicholas will fever also while teething.. I think some baby is like that. So I believe you had a tough time to take k him during that period of time.
- Thanks ya.

Violet, Mommy Gwen and Kylie - Thanks!

Serene - Yes, another 2. Yeap, now I tried to feed her more soild than pureed food.

Doreen - I have yet to try this method, but I have heard it from forum. But never remember to buy it. Old mommy, poor memory!

Caroline - Actually she has stopped from teething since last 2 months, and now "they" are back. But is a good news also, coz I can feed her MORE solid food now.

Su Ying - Yes, is really a hard time. I did suggest to my husband, but he said, try to feed with bottle first. And everytime he said that, Sarah tends to be able to drink more milk.
So end up, tak jadi pakai sudu..
Anyway, thanks for suggestions.
