We went to bed and I started listening to positive affirmations and timing the contractions. I couldn't sleep and kept waking up every 10 minutes. At midnight we got up and went into the lounge.

Is your baby coming up to teething? If your baby is around 6 months old, it’s likely you'll see those little teeth starting to break through baby's gums. Their first teeth will probably be the ones at the front in the bottom gum, and be followed by the front teeth on the top gum. During teething, most babies will get dribbly mouths, gnaw and chew EVERYTHING and maybe get a little bit cranky. You can see your pharmacist for teething gels or other cover-the-counter remedies if needed but most importantly, it’s time to start your little one’s oral health routine to look...
