Is your baby teething Heres how to soothe him

A baby teething is when his or her first set of teeth, primary teeth, break through the gums. Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. When a child starts teething, it is quite a difficult time for both the baby and the mother. The child is irritable and in pain and the mother is clueless about how to help her baby during this difficult time. Our proparent Shikha Garg shares the signs of teething, and some tips that should bring relief to the baby.

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.
