Bubba has sore gums. They’ve been hurting her all weekend.
I know this because apart from the redness in her cheeks, she has been gnawing on anything available to her. Her poor little fingers have had bite marks in them, and each time I’ve offered her gel for her gums she’s chomped down on my fingers too.
When I went to get her out of bed, she’d undone her little gro bag and was chomping on the edge of it.
In (and out of) the bath, she has been gnawing on her rubbery bath toys.
And then last night, when I gave her some pain relief, she kept the dropper and sat chewing on it until she’d completely destroyed it. At which point she came to me and offered it up as if I might fix it.
I almost caved on Saturday and gave her the num num (dummy/binkie), but we’ve come so far (ten whole days without it now!) that I didn’t want to start the habit again.
So: dear toothie pegs, please just hurry up and cut through so I can have my happy bubba back with no sore gums. Thanks!
