Ryan has started sticking his fists in his mouth, slabbering & dribbling, hes also been crying & fussy since approx Mon. He got his first injections on Wed & he has been gurny since then but thats now 4 days later (Sat). I was allowed to give him baby calpol (paracetamol) which the doc perscibed, i think its helping but hes just not happy at times. Sometimes I can console him close to my chest other times i cant. Im also scared im going to spoil him if i nurse him 24/7.
At the min he will feed 7oz say every 3-4hrs during the day then play in his bouncer, chat & smile for about 1-2hrs then he gets cranky for a little snooze jus before the next feed. I usually nurse him to sleep with his dummy when he gets cranky & I know its sleep he wants. He baths later in the evening every night ranging from 6-9pm then he gets another bottle, thats not usually his last feed the latest last feed could be anything from 11-1.30am. He might then sleep to 6.30-7.30am. Some days hes on this track & other days its all our of wack he just doesnt have a wee routine yet.
Is it possible the injections have just annoyed him or would it be teething??! He is slabbering & ive felt his gums but im really not sure what i need to find. There are ridges but maybe they are always there... Can anyone help??! Im for asda early tomorrow morning to get baby bonjela & a cool teething ring & anything else I can find to help him. Xx
