I think Zakiah is teething!
Lately, Z has been having trouble sleeping longer at night when previously she had been doing 7-8 hour stretches at night. Not to add that her bedtime is all out of whack. Last night she didn't fall asleep until 11:30ish and she was on the breast when she fell asleep. She woke up again around 5:30. I fed her, and she went back to sleep. She didn't get up again until 8:20ish this morning. Josh and I have been giving her teething rings for her to suck on to help relieve the pressure under her gum. She has been drooling a lot, sometimes coughing and choking on her on saliva. Her stools have been extra loose lately also. From what I read online about teething, the first tooth doesn't cut until 6-7 months on average but can happen as early as 3 months. Also, some babies can go through the symptoms of teething for several weeks or months before the first tooth comes in. So, I am guessing she is going through the process right now since she seems to show all the major signs. I just have to take this process as it goes. I hate her being uncomfortable and crying at night and not falling asleep until almost midnight when I put her to bed around 8:30-9ish. She has to be overtired by now! I hope that I can get her back on routine within the next few days so she can get back to getting 10-11 hours of sleep at night instead of 7-9 hours.
