Ember Jean Roloff, the newest Little People, Big World baby, is giving her family many reasons to smile. Jeremy and Audrey’s daughter has just turned 2-months-old last week, and already she’s hitting remarkable milestones.
Audrey Roloff shared an update about baby Ember on her latest Instagram Stories. The 26-year-old first-time mom gushed about how her daughter seems to be advanced for her age. Audrey revealed that baby Ember is now teething at only 2-months-old.
According to Audrey, she noticed this development on Ember the other day, but couldn’t believe it herself. After all, infants usually start teething between 4- to 6-months-old. At first, Audrey thought her daughter was just drooling excessively. But she excitedly confirmed that baby Ember is really teething.
“Actually, we can see the tooth coming in. So it’s definitely a tooth! She’s got one that’s coming in on the bottom right side, and then you could barely see the start of one coming in on the bottom left side,” the reality star excitedly said on her IG stories video.
“So it looks like we’ve got a teething two-month-old!”
According to the website, Parents, “tooth eruption” means that the baby is getting ready to eat solids. Though this happens at around six months, there are infants who may start teething earlier. As they begin to exercise their oral-motor muscles, teething babies also start making sounds that spur their language skills. It looks like baby Ember is on the way to becoming a talker.
All cozied up with my sweet little Ember. She warms my heart, get it;) Snuggling her is my favorite. ???? • Ok so... I’ve been convicted on something lately... As much as l love sharing my life with y’all and what I’ve learned/am learning, l never want to be someone who spends more time sharing on social media than l do seeking the Lord and searching His truths. I know this might sound a little contradictory, cause here l am sharing this, but maybe some of you can relate? ????????♀️ In a world that invites us to share share share, l want to seek seek seek. Instead of always reaching for my phone to document a moment or share on social media, l want to be more concerned with seeking God in those moments and listening for what He might have to share with me! Don’t get me wrong, l love sharing and engaging with you all in this space, but it should always come second to time with my Creator and redeemer. I want to be someone who spends more time reading truth, engaging wisdom, and listing for His still small voice, than sharing my own incomplete oversimplified perspectives. • Photo by @jeremyjamesroloff and blanket by my friends at @sackclothxashes grab one (they are seriously dreamy) for 20% off this weekend with code: DARLING #alwaysmore #sackclothxashes #emberjean
Interestingly, Ember’s 6-month-old cousin Jackson has also just started to teeth himself. Tori Roloff shared her monthly update on baby Jackson and revealed that her son “has cut his first tooth.” The Little People, Big World grandchild is now on solid food and is getting more active by the day. Pretty soon, the Roloff household will have two energetic and adorable toddlers.
While baby Ember’s amazing development is truly exciting, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have tough times ahead of them. Teething makes babies irritable and cranky due to swelling gums. Some babies even get a fever.
Currently, Audrey is still suffering from mastitis in her attempt to exclusively breastfeed her firstborn. The LPBW star recently opened up about her breastfeeding struggles, which she described at one point as “excruciating.” She confessed that feeding Ember became too painful and she was “badly blistered and bruised.” Audrey has since overcome her postpartum pains and was able to exclusively breastfeed Ember for five weeks now. However, she stated that her breastfeeding journey is far from over.
“Two days ago I came down with mastitis again…but I was reminded that even though this journey still poses its challenges, being able to feed my daughter from my own body brings me incomparable joy.”
l always thought breastfeeding was a choice. People would often ask me if l was going to breastfeed when I was pregnant and l always answered with a determined yes. But after Ember was born, l realized that for some people, it’s not a choice. My breastfeeding journey has not been easy. After sharing with you all a little bit about the struggles l have had feeding Ember, l realized that so many of you have gone through, or are currently going through, similar pains, heart aches, and challenges. About 24 hours after Ember was born, l became severely engorged. The nurses at the hospital admitted to it being the worse case they’d ever seen. l couldn’t put my arms at my sides or hold Ember - except to feed, and feeding was so painful because l was also badly blistered/bruised (we later found out Ember had a significant lip and tounge tie). Not to mention, what they had to do to “get me flowing” was excruciating. l thought the pain was supposed to be over once they laid her on my chest? But people just don’t talk enough about the after labor pains... ???? • Three days after coming home from the hospital, l came down with mastitis. The antibiotics for my infection, stress, Ember’s lip and tounge tie, sleep deprivation, and some misguided medical advice caused my milk supply to completely tank. l was devastated and even told by a pediatrician and lactation consultant that l would probably not ever be able to exclusively breastfeed Ember. She was having trouble gaining weight and they were concerned. They also thought l had insiffienct granular tissue.. ???? • Here we are two months later and Ember has been exclusively breastfeed for the past 5 weeks!!! So much hard work and prayers have come to fruition???????? • Two days ago l came down with mastitis again... but l was reminded that even though this journey still poses its challenges, being able to feed my daughter from my own body brings me incomparable joy. l will defintely be sharing more about this journey on my blog eventually, but l just wanted to share this here and now in case there are other new mamas out there that could be encouraged and filled with hope by my testimony. #alwaysmore #emberjean
Little People, Big World is slated to air a brand new season early next year, which will most likely include the two new Roloff grandchildren.
