Forest has been out of sorts and may just have given up on sleep. He had a double ear infection that is just getting better during that power outage fiasco. But now is having serious teething pain. I was worried his ears were infected again after a high fever and another night of screaming and no sleep, so I dragged him to the doctor yesterday morning again. But, no they are just about back to normal but the doctor said his gums are swollen and it looks as though more teeth are coming in. Really?!
What this means for us is that he gets up every 2 hours during the night atleast screaming in pain. Then is pretty much done with sleep around 4am. I feel really bad for him. We tried tylenol but that only seems to work during these 2 hour stretches then it starts all over again. He really seems to be uncomfortable and nothing is helping. Seriously, what do parents do in this situation?! (Do they sell baby sleeping pills? Just kidding!) I tried a frozen washcloth, baby orajel, teething rings, etc., but nothing helps.

(did niko and juniper know he was sick? they snuggled with us too!)
This all started during the week when I decided to get serious about putting him on a nap schedule too. So, that will have to wait. Possibly even wait until he is 2 years old and has all of his teeth...
