Save your fingers…and your furniture! {Giveaway/ 2 Winners} #Munchables #YMCCommunity

When our first born began to teethe, we used the Razzberry soother, and various liquid filled teethers to try to ease her pain. We resorted to Camillia and Tylenol and they managed to get us through it. Several books, an ottoman, window sills and my boobs, all didn’t fair so well.

Fortunately, her teeth poked through pretty quickly, so the suffering, and damage throughout the house ceased in a short period of time.
With kid #2, his teeth pretty much followed suit behind his sister. The first twelve came through quickly and mostly pain free. We still provided Camillia and Tylenol on the difficult days.
Unlike his sister, get didn’t turn into the family dog by chewing the legs off any chairs.
For the past few weeks, his eye teeth have decided to make an appearance. These new fangs are taking their sweet time breaking through, causing Mr. Gooberhead to gnaw incessantly on his hands and leave a trail of slime all over whatever he touches.
Poor Little a Dude.
Enter Munchables.
