1st bottom tooth sprouts. 2nd follows shortly.
Although they look adorable, they made you sleep so poorly.
3rd one comes in from the top and 4th one follows suit.
That gap resembles Letterman, but I guess it's sort of cute.
You're new found teeth can do many things I think you're going to find,
they've helped you chomp your Cheerios, and you've even tried to grind.
I've nurtured your swollen gums and watched over you with care.
I even applied the Orajel during evening hours when I was barely there.
So now that you've got those pearly whites on the left and on the right,
I ask of you to be kind. When it comes time to drink your milk...
please oh PLEASE, DON'T BITE!!
What is a nursing mama to do? I've tried delivering a stern "NO" with the result of sinister laughter in my pain stricken face. I've reluctantly tried cheek flicking which doesn't seem to phase him and leaves me feeling guilty. I've tried completely removing him mid bite with the result of anquished bawling followed by a look of complete deprivation. I'd really like to continue nursing for just a couple more months, but these aren't exactly ideal circumstances.
