How To Help Babies (and Parents) Through Teething

Baby teething can be a trying time not only for infants but also for parents. Fortunately, there are various solutions to help parents get through this essential stage of a child’s life more serenely.

A natural phase in the development of infants, teething usually starts around 6 months.1 But what exactly is teething? What signs and actions can parents take to relieve their baby during this period?

Teething can extend into a long period presenting multiple phases.

Teething is a long phase starting at around 6 months and lasting up to around 36 months1 and is frustrating for the baby and parents. As a result, it is crucial to know and understand the symptoms properly and how to cope with this painful stage.

How to recognize the symptoms of baby teething?

According to Naturopathic Doctor Stephanie Yaremko2, teething symptoms are easy to recognize. Signs that the teething process has begun are usually painful gums, restlessness, irritability, diarrhea, rosy cheeks, excessive drooling and nighttime wakefulness.

Fortunately, there are solutions to help your infant go smoothly through these ailments. Here are some useful tips:

  • Let your baby nibble on a refrigerated but not frozen ring. Choose solid teething rings made of a safe material (silicone, for example).
  • Lightly massage the gums with a semi-frozen washcloth.
  • Make sure your child feels safe by increasing cuddles and hugs. These can go a long way to calm your child down and contribute to well-being.
  • Since diarrhea is often associated with teething, make sure your baby’s diaper is comfortable and dry by changing it frequently.
  • Prevent diaper rash by using an effective diaper cream.
  • Give your baby a warm bath to help calm irritability.

A bit of tender loving care goes a long way for a baby’s well-being.
