View Full Version : Screaming, teething baby

25-01-2010, 01:19 PM
The nine month old baby I am looking after seems unwell to me. His dad told me he is teething and left some bonjela for me to use but he is so uncomfortable and upset. Can I ask the parents to come and pick him up or is teething too trivial a reason to inconvenience them?
I am also looking after a two year old but am hardly getting to spend any time with him because of the baby!

hi poor you if it is making you feel uncomfatble and that any off the mindees in your care are not getting the attention they require i would ring them teething can be a worring time the docs blame everything on teething at this age but he may have a little niggle else where suggest they pop lo do docs or nurse
