Rachel has been showing more and more signs/symptoms of teething, including:
- drooling (ALWAYS)
- having the urge to chew and bite
- loose stool (about 2 weeks now)
- more fusses at night and wakes up in the middle of the night (this week)

*YAWN* yeah, she woke up yesterday at 2am! Making noise and don't want to go back to sleep for a while, even though she was yawning, probably as big a yawn as mine... So, I was checking her gum, still did not really see any white bumbs, hubby mentioned he THINKS he see it, but we are both not very sure...

Talking about dental, I heard on the radio (MyFM) about how much toothpaste to use when brushing your teeth? They mentioned that some research shows that if you brush without using toothpaste, it will cause deterioration of the dental protective layer by 20 (err, I don't understand what is the unit that they used, so lets call it 20#)... If you were to use toothpaste, it causes deterioration of 25-60#!!! Surprising eh? So the suggested amount of toothpaste is about 1/3 or 1/2 of the length of your toothbrush.

It made me think, if all this brushing friction causes the 'deterioration'/'corrosion', meaning that the less we brush, the better right? hahaha... Pretty contradicting isn't it? Anyhow, remember not to use too much toothpaste from now on wor... Good thing also, save more money also... :D
