Teething can be a difficult process. Your baby will likely be uncomfortable, which means they may not sleep. Your baby may also experience diarrhoea while teething. They may also bite things (like their parents) to try and soothe their gums.
Most babies start teething at around six month. However, some may not start teething until they are around a year. Some babies are even born with their first teeth! Some babies may not experience any discomfort from teething. However, others can become quite grumpy and unsettled during teething.
Teething can be a troubling experience for your baby. You should look out for:
- Red gums
- Flushed cheeks
- Increased dribbling
- Gnawing or chewing on things
There is a lot you can do to help a teething baby. Make sure they feel comfortable and safe and provide things to chew on. These can be soft teething rings. However, your baby may prefer to chew on something hard like a wooden spoon. You can also soothe your baby’s sore gums with teething gel powders.
