Toothy problems.

Well it's been one heck of a week. TP spent the first part of the week with a temperature, he was hovering around the 39 degrees mark and jumped up to 40 one night. After a quick call to NHS Direct I felt a bit calmer, but he went off to the Dr's the following day and the Dr decided it was teething and I was most annoyed that she didnt even bother to take his temperature (!). Anyhoo, a couple of nights in bed with Mummy & Daddy later his temperature went back to normal and his sleep got worse! Up every hour and a very tired Mummy & Daddy are hoping that the teeth will make an appearance very very soon.

On the plus side, TP's three 30 minute naps a day are changing and for the past 2 or 3 days, he has been having a 90 minute nap mid morning and then another 30 minute nap at about 2pm, Im trying to get him to take a further nap at about 4.30pm which seems to be key to him going to sleep alone at night without the need for having a booby in his mouth to sleep. The question is, how on earth do you make a baby sleep?! It's going to be late afternoon walks with him in the pushchair I think!

TP is comlpetely off his food at the moment, we've been offering him all 3 meals but are lucky if he puts anything to his mouth; most of it is ending up on the floor! Nevermind, he's been taking lots of milk and that's the most important thing.
