TEETHING ??????

If you ask me if Chloe is teething my answer would be YES … For the past 4 months ! Was she really teething for so long? God only knows,as the teeth have a long way to go and it doesn’t happen overnight … What I know now is that she is DEFINITELY teething now. My usually very happy baby for the past 2 days has been so  upset, crying every 5 min and having small temperature. 

 We all keep waiting for those first teeth, now finally at the age of  8 months I can see tooth coming through !!!!!

 We all think that dribbling and putting everything in to the mouth is a sign that baby is teething-wrong !!!! I have reed an article which explains that this is a normal phase in baby’s development and has nothing to do with teeth. 

 So how do we know if baby is teething? 

– dribbling lots and lots more than the usual lots ! 

– temperature

– one red cheek (apparently not both)

–  red bum 

– swollen gums

– moody, clingy 

…. But it’s still a little bit of guessing game as it is with everything when it comes to babies  😉

Jumpero 

Should you buy it or no ?

  
 Things to consider:

– It’s very big and takes up lots of space.

– It’s expensive 

– How much use will you get from it? 

 We bought it when Chloe was 4 month old as she only wanted to stand! I thought that this will be a great solution : she can stand, jumped and play.  In our case it was a waste of money. 

 We got Fisher Price Discover ‘N Grow Jumperoo which costed £80 and we used it only a handful of times. Chloe didn’t mind standing in it for 15 min max and then was getting bored. She wasn’t really in to jumping, and as soon as she started crawling she refuses to go in to it. Lots of my Mum friends agrees that in they case it wasn’t worth it. 

My advise would be buy used one, or borrow one from a friend/family. You can see if your baby likes it and if not then you can just return it or get rid of it 😀
