Signs and symptoms of teething can vary for each child and family. Sometimes you will suddenly notice the first gleam of a white tooth popping out of either your babies upper or lower gum. Other times however you may notice your baby beginning to show a change in behaviour making you wonder what on earth is going on!
Teething is a term that we all come across in early parenthood. It’s a normal developmental stage that every child goes through as they approach the right age. As parents, we all know to expect teething and see it as one of the first major milestones for our babies.

“Are we there yet?” It’s the question that my partner and I will undoubtedly come to dread when our monkey is a little older. For the time being however we have other challenges to face whilst travelling with a six-week-old.
Teething started early for us, at around three and a half months - my little cherub was replaced by a grizzly, grumpy monster and no matter how many baby books I read nothing prepared me for this. What did help was speaking to friends, family and reading online for help. Thankfully we have a wonderful local pharmacist, who offered advice and some teething gel, which initially helped take the edge off, but it didn’t last.

There is nothing quite so testing in the first year of parenthood than the misery and exhaustion of a teething baby.

This last point is of course hotly contested by parents the country over.
My Christmas craft projects are but a distant memory so it's hardly surprising that I have been rather excited about Easter and the chance to do some seasonal crafting!
