I tried natural remedies to help him with the discomfort. I tied a knot in a burp rag for him to chew on. He got crankier. I tried to give him ice in the mesh bag. He just got wet and crankier. When I dug around some more in his mouth, he seemed to be content chewing on my gloved fingers. I started losing feeling in my hand so I decided it was time to give him teething tablets.
My attempt to place those two little tablets under his tongue proved to be a difficult task. He ended up getting it down. Thank goodness it is quick dissolve because I was afraid he would choke on it. He seemed to settle down a bit an hour after I gave it to him
I have read that teeth can move around for quite some time but I am wondering how long before it really starts growing in. It is surprising to me that Sam got a tooth first. Dean being bigger and much droolier, I was certain he would cut first. You just never know with kids.
Pretty soon Sam won't look like a toothless old man.
