Blaming Everything on Teething

It's a great scape-goat when you don't actually know what's wrong with your baby but don't want to admit it to anyone. The symptoms are both varied and vague, so no one will question you.

Runny nose?
Crying that can't be consoled?
Not sleeping through the night?
Biting other babies?
Low score on the ACT?

It's so great. And a lot of the time, it's actually the truth.

Question for you: Have you ever used this Mama technique? Be honest.

Bonus question for you: Do you own fashion teething jewelry? You know, the necklaces and bracelets that look like your own jewelry but are actually made for your tot to teeth on? Be honest.

LOL!! The funny thing is I often hear other mom's use the teething line and think, "seriously?" But yet anytime Noah's drooling like crazy I do assume anything else going on is teething related.

As for the bonus. I do not have any and it seems to me that would result in your child trying to "teeth" on all your jewelry.

I have definitely used the "Mama technique!"

Bonus Question:
I definitely own the teething jewelry and it worked wonders with my twins when they were teething. I love the dentist invented, Dr. Bloom's Chewable Jewels (!
