Is your baby crankier than usual, drooling more, or grabbing objects to chew on? If you answered yes, then chances are your baby is going through teething. Most babies hit the teething stage around the 6-month mark and it can be a tough time not only for babies who experience tender gums and mouth soreness, but also for parents who have to come up with creative ways to soothe irritable babies.
Here are just a few tricks for helping get baby through teething:
Apply Pressure – Experts say that applying a little pressure to the gums with your finger or a piece of gauze can help ease the pain of teething for baby.
Keep Dry – More drool means more chances of skin irritations. Keep a cloth handy to dry drool quickly before it can cause problems.
Solid Foods- Teething time can be a good time to start getting baby used to chewing on solid foods. Try offering babues vegetables like peeled carrots or cucumbers, but remember to keep close watch in case of choking.
Try Teething Tools – Providing babies with teething tools like Teething Bling -teethable safe jewelry - that is fashion-approved by mom and baby safe for teething and playing can put a smile on both mom and baby’s faces.
