the eric update - day 233: the ol' frozen washcloth teething trick.

we're almost certain that odin has begun teething. he doesn't seem to be drooling as much lately ( although not as much drool is still a lot ), but we can see small white spots on his lower gums where one might expect to see his central and lateral incisors appear. presumably the white spots are little baby teeth pushing close to the surface of his gums.

we have a one a plastic teething ring that we keep in the fridge for emergency use which does an adequate but not stupendous job of soothing him; so we thought we try freezing a washcloth and were amazed to find that it was nearly instantaneous effective.

perhaps he liked the changing texture of the washcloth as the ice melted compared to the smooth plastic teether? or maybe he just likes sucking on frozen washcloths.

Zak (our 2 year old), still likes to suck on washcloths, either grabbing one out of the sink or sucking on the one in the tub (yuk). At least he doesn't eat them.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
