Teething Is An Important Milestone as Well — TIps On How TO Help Your Child Through It

Normally, teething is an overly distressing stage for all children. However, there is no one-fit-for-all approach to resolving the issue. Some of the tips here will work better for some babies than others. One thing is, however, universal — children at this age tend to chew so much that it is very important to get rid of objects that could choke them.

How do you know that your child has started teething?

The following signs can be observed:

  • Swollen and reddish gums
  • Red cheeks
  • Excessive drooling
  • Gum sucking and rubbing on hard objects
  • Sleeplessness, restlessness and a loss of appetite

Teething Rings

Babies in this stage like rubbing their gums against something hard. Teething rings are a safe distraction to help your child throughout the painful process. With modern technology, there are many varieties. Some can even be cooled first inside the fridge and then given to the baby to numb the pain. However, it is important to read the instructions first. Fastening a teething ring around your bay’s wrist or neck is a bad idea that could result in discomfort or even possibly choke your child.

Teething gels

Consult your doctor to know the right teething gel for your child. Sugar free gels, for instance, are often a better option. What makes them so effective? They contain a mild anesthetic that numbs the pain along with antiseptics that help prevent infections from wounds caused by the repetitive chewing on hard objects like toys.

Distraction

Every child likes to play, so frequent play sessions could be a great distraction from the pain.
