Little Q was born in water (in a Rubbermaid horse trough in our bedroom). She has loved it--in all forms--ever since: baths, showers, pools, in a bottle... . I'm thankful she loves it enough to even distract her from teething pain. There was a day last weekend when nothing else helped, so we filled up the sink and plopped her in.
It was magic.
Finally...relief (for all of us)! We still didn't get many smiles, but as the splashing and kicking began, the tears stopped.
Such big, sad eyes. Though babies will quickly forget the trauma of teething, parents never do. It's heartbreaking! We are all happier now that our water baby has made it past the pains of one more tooth.
