Well last week Alex had a really hard time sleeping through the night. I tried numerous things to get him to go back down. Every time he was asleep I would lay him down peacefully, and then boom he was back awake. I don't know if his bedtime routine was disrupted, if he was teething, or just lonely. But at 3:30 am (after having listened to him for 1 1/2 hours) I really didn't care how I got him to sleep, I just wanted to have peace and quiet for him and for me. It was pitch dark and so I reached for my trusted Hyland's teething tablets which usually work like a charm. Popped a few of them into my hand and felt around for his mouth. I found some place to put them and he seemed to get quiet. Yes! Victory, silence! It must have worked because I didn't hear him make a peep the rest of the night and I fell asleep after being so exhausted. The next morning I went to go get Alex out of the crib and was changing his diaper. I noticed that something powdery was lodged in his right nostril. What could it be? My trusted Hyland's teething tablet was the culprit. I guess they can be used in the nose and in the mouth to aid in restless nights due to teething or sleep-deprived pregnant mothers. So go ahead and reach for Hyland's teething tablets the next time you need some peace and quiet.
