Is Your Baby Teething Heres how to soothe him

Teething marks another achievement of a developmental milestone in your baby. And though it is exciting for you as a parent to see the first tooth of your baby, your baby may or may not be quite comfortable during the teething process. S/he needs extra care during teething. This is the time when the doctor would suggest you to take care of their calcium and Vitamin D3 requirements. Also, along with teething comes a host of other problems such as constipation, loose motions, headache, stomach ache, gum pains, and lack of sleep among others.

 

Tips while Baby Teething :

1. To avoid constipation give ample of fluids to your child.

2. During loose motions, give mashed banana with curd.

3. Give them a head massage whenever you get time. You will notice whenever you press their head or give them a head massage they will feel relaxed and will become sleepy, which is good for them.

4. For gums care, take one teaspoon honey and give the gums a massage once a day (but check with your doctor on this)

5. Your child should sleep a lot during teething which makes them happy, energetic and minimises the pain

6. Give them body massage, especially legs and head massage which decreases pains and makes teething easier to tolerate.

7. Give Calcium and Vitamin D3 as per the doctor's prescription.

These are just suggestions and you may check with your doctor in case the child is in too much pain or is irritated.

how to deal with baby's loose motion

during teething there is chance of having cough?

Hi Iti Raghav it's not teething that causes loose motions... it's because of the things that's kids tend to put in their mouth which leads to loose motions... all because they tend to put every thing in their mouth and sometimes dirt enters the system through these things and leads to loose motions....

Hi Swati, No need to give paracetamol to your child unless child is suffering from fever. For gum pains give gums massage. For head ache head massage and other home remedies. Better to avoid medicines so frequently.

@ Shelani No fix time for teething. It may start any time betwwen 4months to 1yr. Some childern suffer problems because of teething before six months and some are too late. No need to worry.

@ Archana naresh this is one of the most popular ways of helping infants deal with mouth soreness from teething is to let them chew on cold things such as Freezy cucumber, orange carrot. onion spring etc. But that also after completing six months. Because digestive enzymes does not develop before six months, baby would not be able to digest them before time. However, Water teether would be fine for baby.

@ Aman Purba, Archana Naresh And Sana Baig parkar, As per my opinion start calcarea after completing six months. and I would say better to consult some PEDIATRIC. Nutritionist can tell you about diet not about medicines.

@ Pravallika It's absolutely fine. Some children take time. Take care of your baby's diet. Give gums massage with SUHAGA once in a week. Give him/her teether. Some children take 1yr some times for their first teeth.

@ Pratibha Hi Pratibha, For medicine concern to doctor. Vitamin C is important during the teething, for which no need to give medicine. For Vitamin C give citrus fruits to your child. Grapes, Orange (seasonal ), Mausmi, Give apple to chew, Lemon water etc.
