Teething may make your baby restless and irritable. If fever, vomiting, or diarrhea occur do not relate this automatically
Some signs that your baby may be teething:
-red cheeks or rash on cheeks
-loss of appetite
What to do?
Let your child chew on a cold, hard object, such as a teething ring. The coldness helps ease the discomfort and the hardness will speed up the eruption of the tooth.
Massaging your child's gums with a clean finger can help reduce pain and discomfort during teething.
Teething gels or ointments (ask your pharmacist for a brand name) are used to numb the gums and reduce the discomfort.
Teething cookies or biscuits are not a good choice as they contain sugar and may lead to tooth decay.
