So we’ve all probably made a promise that we shall not be one of those mums that gives our little angels (and not yet tantrum throwing toddlers) our phone or any tablet just for a moments peace or to stop an earth shattering meltdown of tears, especially in public! I was one of those pre mums who didn’t have a clue why so many mums did it!
Just when I thought I was done with teething the next tooth painstakingly comes through. And Xavi has always been a bad teether showing the typical symptoms and a whole lot more. But no one warned me how much worse it’s gonna get past 1… I mean how many molars does a kid even need exactly?! At 15 months old I’m definitely getting the hang of spotting a tooth coming so below is a list of Xavi’s top symptoms and my top remedies for each. They help Xavi at a minimum most of the time but hopefully one tip will help your kid better than my little teething monster.
Sorry guys for the very delayed blog post! We’ve been busy taking Xavi on holiday to Dubai and ever since he came along I’m a firm believer in no social media updates and minimum phone use when away to really cherish and enjoy the precious time away from reality. So what better for my first blog post after a holiday telling you all about Xavis adventures abroad so far.. starting with his first one to St Lucia! Yes he is very spoilt but despite being a terror at times he totally deserves it for being so god damn cute!
So ever since Xavi turned 1 he has become a bigger pain in the butt than usual. And I’ve been an extra softie since his hospital visits but now he’s better the only thing keeping him waking up and invading my bed is 1. Habit, 2. Clingyness 3. Those damn molars!! Here’s how its currently going down after 7pm…
So we’ve had a tough time with Xavi the past couple weeks.. In and out of hospital on two separate occasions following severe asthma attacks. We had no idea he suffered from this at first but ever since those god damn 1 year jabs Xavi got a cold, which then turned into a nasty cough he hasn’t been able to shake off for over 6 weeks now.
‘Sleeping through the night’ – a phrase that has haunted me since Xavi was 4 months old and according to Google was fully capable of sleeping through the night by then with no milk, no cuddles, no rocking, nada! Well Xavi is now 13 months old and i can probably count on two hands the times he has slept through the night… and this isn’t that magic 7pm-7pm sleeping through.. no no no this is Xavi’s version… 7.30pm-5.30am at best!
So this is the little ball of cuteness that inspired me to start this blog.. my Xavi! Told you he’s cute right? Other fun facts about Xavi:
