Tips to Make Teething Process easy for babies

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 her/his teething stage. 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 to deal with Baby Teething Problems:

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.

 

What Precautions Should I Take When My Baby Is Teething?

It's very easy to receive advices, though they always call for cautiousness. Every remedy is not for every child. So be familiar with the pros and cons before you implement it on your ailing baby.

  1. Essential oils and honey are not advisable for the babies less than a year. In case you wish to apply, ask medical advisor for the proper usage
  2. Babies are prone to choking hazards. So never offer them too short or too large objects, which may pose threat to their safety
  3. Never leave baby unattended. It is not possible for a mother to be around her baby all the time but remember, not to leave baby alone while she is having a mouth full of chewable
  4. Chewable shall always be offered in a clean regime. Finger food, cold cloth or massage, shall be done maintaining health hygiene
  5. Remember the first molars, big tooth are more painful, so be extra careful with them

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

@Vaishali , give head massage to your little one. Gums massage sometimes with honey 1/2 tsp+ one pinch of baked suhaga powder. @ Richa, Don't worry Richa. She is just 8 months old. Give her Keenu (Orange ), Kiwi, papaya in fruits. These fruits will help her. If she doesn't want to eat don't force her.

@ Sarita and Neha, Don't worry! It differs child to child. It depends on an individual growth and health + healthy diet. Right intake of calcium, iron, vitamin D3 and protein.
