Please could anyone help.
My 6 and a half month old daughter is constantly crying in the day, biting her fist, fingers, muslin etc, she won't let me leave her alone, and very clingy.
She does not want her food all the time now and her whole routine has gone out of sync so not sure whether i am coming or going. She seems very tired in the day but will not have a lunch time nap just 15-30 mins every now and again.
The only good thing is that she sleeps through most nights sometime just waking up once for no reason.
Would u say that she is teething because she won't let me anywhere near her gums to have a feel please help. Anxious mum trying to cope as mum lives abroad.

imho sounds very much like teething.

Just been through a bout of it here with dd2 who is 4 months.

The peak of each push shouldn't last more than a few days though, and then hopefully you will get some time before the next one!

good luck!

bump to give you some more useful responses!

Also wanted to add that I think teething is the hardest thing to get through in the first year or so. Or it has been for us anyway.

Because you settle into some kind of routine and then each time teeth come through, that routine disappears, your baby gets very clingy and needing full time entertainment, and sleep goes out of the window etc

Am very of people who have children who weren't reallyaffected by it.
