3 baby teething tips you should knowTeething is part of the kid's growth. It usually starts at 6 months and can be a nerve-wracking moment for the caregiver since it comes with discomfort and oral issues. Most kids experience pain, irritation, and soreness in their gums. Your friends and family members may give you teething tips, but do they work? In this article, you'll learn effective tips to relax your teething baby.

Massage the gums

Soreness and pain are some of the symptoms of baby teething. An effective way to alleviate the discomfort is by applying pressure on the baby's gums. The gentle massage technique is highly recommended since it helps to ease the pain. This may involve using clean fingers to rub your kid's gums with gentle motions. You can also use a gauze pad or cold washcloth to soothe the irritated gums.

Consider Teething toys

Teeth toys are another way to comfort a kid in pain. It helps to alleviate pain, soothe irritated gums, and offer the kid something to chew. Does your baby use pacifiers or rubber toys? These items may be helpful when relaxing your teething baby. Start by placing the toys in the fridge and allow them to cool. Cold items are good options for easing baby teething pain. Make sure the toys are clean and do not leave them in the fridge for too long since they can harm your baby's oral health. When an object stays in the freezer for too long, it develops layers of ice that can harm the kid's delicate gums.

Baby teething medication

In some cases, home remedies may not ease discomfort. In this case, it is good to consult a pediatric dentist to find a medication that suits your child. Pain relief medication can help to alleviate pain and allow the kid to relax. Are you worried about baby teething discomfort? Contact us for all your child's oral care needs.
