Could It Be A Simple Solution?
Maybe we have this all wrong? Maybe Baby MPB’s recent horrible night time screaming isn’t the result of teething pain? Maybe, he’s just thirsty?
After an absolutely horrible scream fest in which Baby MPB was completely inconsolable from 12am-2am, we finally got him back to sleep last night and he slept until 6:45am without any pain relief. We did it with just with a sip of water.
We live in a really dry climate, maybe it’s literally just that he’s thirsty? And just maybe his teeth aren’t the significant source of the problem. He gave up his middle of the night bottle in early December, so maybe maybe he just needs a sip of water?
At what age is it acceptable to leave a straw cup (NOT a bottle) with water (NOT milk) in the crib with him overnight? Could this be our solution? Could it be this simple?
Oh gosh, I have no idea. I know without a doubt that 2 top canine teeth and 2 top molars cutting through has to be very painful, but maybe there is more to this? Or maybe I’m just getting desperate for some sort of solution?
What I do know is that’s soooo hard watching our little guy so upset and it’s getting harder every single night as neither Mr. MPB or I are getting any sleep. It’s been well over a week now, maybe 2? We are pretty desperate, as it’s been almost a week now. So, we are now we are thinking giving him a straw cup with water in his crib and seeing what happens. But I’m worried we may be creating a future potty training issue. Thoughts??
