    So it's almost 1am and Reagan is currently snuggling between us in the bed. She woke up crying because her mouth was hurting her.

    They went to the dentist for routine cleanings last week and he confirmed that she has molars coming in. She's complained some lately so we did talk to the dentist about it.

    This is the first time she's really cried though. I gave her some Motrin and I'm hoping that helps.

    So now I have a teething almost 6 month old and a teething 6 year old.

    Any tips or tricks for the big kid? Jason didn't seem bothered when his came in, but he wasn't really bothered by teething as a baby either.

    Poor girl. I did feel around and her guns feel swollen. :(

    I've done motrin.  Both Luke and Sophia have molars in or coming in.  I've offered them popsicles, thinking that would also help with the discomfort and they did not go for it.  I've also noticed that they are drooling more and that's definitely due to the molars.

    Popsicles sound like a good idea! And as hot as it is today, I'm sure they'd love that.

    My girls never really had bad teething issues (except when meara got her first 6 teeth ALL.AT.ONCE!), but their 6 year molars did cause some pain.  I just gave motrin if they complained.
