How to Soothe Your Teething Infant 

 We have toothpastes specifically made for new baby teeth. Check them out. 

Your baby is currently going through something he has never experienced before. Remember, he is still new to the world. He has no idea how to tell you how he is feeling, what he needs, or how to let the pain go. So, it is up to you to find ways to help take the pain away. Or at least find someone or something that can. Here, we’ve compiled tips on what to do to relieve your child of his teething pains.
 

1. Massage the Gums

Help your baby find relief by rubbing your hands, which must be thoroughly washed clean, on his sore gums. Rub in circular motions. 

2. Cold Washcloth Therapy 

Your baby’s gums are very sore right now such that even the softest touch can irritate him. To help soothe the gum, take a clean soft cloth submerged in water, squeeze out the water, and place the cloth in the fridge. Leave it for a few minutes to cool. Then, fold it till it is small enough to fit into your child’s mouth. Let your baby chew on it but stay close so he doesn’t swallow it. 

3. Give Your Child Non-Sweetened Pacifier to Chew On

You might be tempted to add a little sugar or honey on your child’s pacifier or teething toy, you know so that he can enjoy chewing on it. But, sugar and sweets worsen tooth pain. Apart from that, it can weaken your child’s gums such that when the teeth do appear, they are out of shape. Place your child’s teething toy in the fridge and let it cool a while, then give him to chew on. 

4. Clean the Drool

As your child teeth, there is bound to be drools. Although some babies don’t drool, majority do. As the drools come, wipe them off. Keep your child’s face and clothes as clean and dry as possible to prevent worsening the irritation he already feels. 

5. Chilled-Fruit Therapy

If your child already eats solid, you can give him/her some chilled fruits like banana to munch on. Mash the banana and put in his/her feeder before you give him/her to prevent choking. You can also use apples, mango, or pears. 

6. Cold-Spoon Compression Therapy

You can also put a spoon in the freezer and let it get cold, but not chilled. Then let your baby bit his gums into it. Don’t yield to the temptation of coating the spoon with sugar, to prevent cavities from forming. 

7. Keep Your Baby Cuddled

Even as adults, we know how much comfort a loving hug can bring. Now, imagine how much comfort your child will experience in the loving embrace of his mother. When you’ve massaged his gums and you’ve done all you can to soothe his pain, cuddle him in your arms. Sometimes, cuddling even helps calm down the fussing. 

As your baby’s teeth come out, you will need toothpaste and soft brush to wash them clean. We have toothpastes specifically made for new baby teeth. Check them out.
