Is your baby drooling more than normal. Is your little one struggling to eat? Do his or her gums seem sore? If so, he or she could be teething. If this is the case, there are many things you can do. Some of our suggestions include:
Cool Gums: Try giving your baby something cool to numb their gums. If your baby isn’t eating solid food, try a teething ring or spoon. If your baby is taking solid foods, try something like a carrot or cucumber.
Drool Excess: During teething, your baby will be uncomfortable, but you can help. For example, your child will drool while teething, which could cause a rash or skin irritation. To stop this, we recommend that you clean off additional drool and apply a cream or lotion.
Distractions Help: Try distracting your little one. Showing them a video, offering toy, or playing with your baby can help. Also, giving your baby flavorful foods (preferably cool foods) can distract them from their discomfort. If none of these recommendations prove effective, try holding your baby.
