The honeymoon's over...

The Bean is officially teething. This morning I could see (as she opened her mouth to cry) the front of her gums all puffy and white, and I can feel sharp little jagged blades at the front of her mouth.

She is currently sitting in my lap, actively sucking on an ice cube in a small mesh bag. She is sad. My boobs are frightened.

You might be lucky with the biting. We had a few incidents early on, but I haven't been bitten in weeks. Although, I do jokingly call Minnow my vampire baby for the enthusiastic way that she latches on.

Don't be afraid to use Tylenol at night with the teething. It's a lifesaver.

The honeymoon's not necessarily over! Sciencewoman's right; you might be lucky about the biting thing. My older daughter only nipped me once or twice when she first got teeth. I just took her off when she did so, and firmly said NO. She cried, of course, but she learned very quickly.

And Tylenol is always good.
