And finally the tooth came out yesterday, 5th October 2010! And I can feel the sharp enamel already!
Zahra is still her usual self but a little bit restless last night where she keep on tossing herself here and there even in her sleep! I tried to offer the boob but she can't sleep still! I guess she feel a bit uneasy with the tooth coming out. And she had a slight fever this morning (37.7 degrees), I didn't give her any medication yet as it's nothing serious. Anyway, do you know that fever associated with tooth coming out is a total myth?
"Viral and bacterial infections cause fever, not teething." However, a temperature might be due to broken gums that are exposed to bacteria or from the eruption of cysts on the gums, which can occur from teething. Dr. Hanna says to keep in mind that your infant is also putting a lot more things in his mouth right around this time and has probably (or will soon) begin crawling. Both of these things expose him to more fever-causing viruses and bacteria unrelated to teething.
Anyway one thing that I'm waiting for is, for her to bite my boob while breastfeeding! Not that I WANT her to do that, it's just I wonder how I'll react. Should I scold her or just pinch her nose? Haha..hopefully she will be an easy baby and won't bite when I say NO ;)
