Teething is a process that almost all children go through at some point during their early years. Teething is the result of teeth erupting above the gum line for the first time, which can often be accompanied by pain and discomfort. Listed below are a few keys to treating teething:
– Various treatment tools that can be used to help treat teething in children include using cool or damp materials gently pressed against your child’s gums, such as gauze pads, small spoons, cold utensils, teething rings, and even your finger if it has been disinfected.
– As soon as teeth begin to break the surface of the gums, teething systems should be applied to help your child.
– Some of the usual signs and symptoms that your child may be teething include an increase in irritability, excessive fussiness, issues and abnormalities with sleeping, a loss of appetite, and even drooling more than usual.
– If your child shows any extreme symptoms, such as fevers, rashes, and diarrhea, contact their pediatrician as soon as you can.
