Dealing With Teething
Teething is an important milestone in your baby’s development. However, it could be a difficult time for your little one too, so you need to know all that you can about teething so that you can help and support him accordingly.
Your baby’s gums will be quite irritable, so offer him a teether or a clean washcloth to gnaw on. Keep these chilled in the fridge as the coolness will provide relief to his sore gums. Clean and sterilize these after each use.
If your baby is continually crying and his gums become red, consult with your baby’s doctor to see if a gel can be applied to the gums. Keep his face dry and free from drool. You can also use gum soothers for temporary relief.
