Not owning a dog, I never thought I would own chew toys.

Wrong.  They are in my fridge, scattered all over the house, and tucked in strategic locations in our cars.

About a week and a half ago, I noticed an increase in Olive’s fussiness level (which is normally pretty miniscule).  She also started chewing on everything she could get her hands on.  I immediately suspected teething and when I checked her mouth, she was the proud owner of a small, barely discernible bump on the front right side of her lower gums.

Fast forward to now – giant lump on the front of her lower gum.  Multiple teeth coming up.  I can feel them under there, but you still can’t really visualize them yet.  My poor girl.  She’s still only a little fussy, but her mommy is absolutely fraught at the idea of my sweet, sweet thunder-thighs in pain.

What am I ever going to do when she has her first real boo-boo?  I mean besides weep in a corner somewhere…

    Numbsit is great stuff and works well with the chewing. You and Matt should still remember the taste. Brings relief to child and parent alike. You chewed well on a chew toy whereas Matt did most of his serious chewing on the leg of the maple breakfast table. Love ya…Dad
