All babies are different, some will get their first tooth at 3 months others nearer to a year old. It’s understandable to worry about your little one but keep in mind that both of you can get through this milestone as long as you know the signs to look out for and the home remedies that can relieve your child’s teething discomfort.
Drooling. Drooling is normally stimulated by teething so fasten on a bib to keep him or her more comfortable and carefully wipe the chin throughout the day to avoid a teething rash.Teething rashes.The constant drip of your little one’s saliva may cause redness, chapping and rashes around his or her mouth, chin and even neck. Simply patting the drool away can help prevent this or consider a skin cream prescribed by your paediatrician.Swollen gums.
If you see an area on your baby’s gums that appear to be swollen, try to gently rub your finger, if there is a slight bump, it’s where the tooth will soon emerge.Biting.
Babies often try to alleviate teething discomfort by chewing and biting on whatever they can find. At this point, consider wearing a silicone bead teething necklace or offer them a teether that is certified and safe to use.Ear pulling and cheek rubbing.
Your baby may create another counter pressure to ease the pain of teething by pulling and rubbing at his or her ear, cheek or chin. This is more of a baby’s administered self-massage.
