My little lad will be 6 months this week and his teeth are more or less sorted by now. The tears have almost stopped but his ears are still a little soft. They will strengthen now the teeth trauma is over. I have been wiping his eyes down with a soggy tea bag a few times a day, I'm sure it has helped but I think the main reason the tears have stopped is because he's getting less discomfort from his mouth.
I have a lovely photo of him in stance from last Saturday ... I'm going to hang onto it and post it on Thursday when he'll be 6 months. It would be nice to get a headshot before then too.
