The Power of the Boob

Not that I wasn't already convinced, but here's yet another reason to continue breastfeeding past a year: MOLARS. As I type this, I am standing in my living room, wearing Sprout in our carrier & he's latched on, calming down slowly from the hysterics he was in earlier. No amount of cuddling, distraction with toys, favourite foods, singing, water or massage worked to calm him down. Breastfeeding will keep him from screeching any more until the acetaminophen we just gave him kicks in. The top two molars are mostly through the gums & the bottom ones are visible, so I'm hoping we're almost through the worst of it. Twelve teeth down (or up, really), eight to go.
