What Can I Give My Child for Teething?
Teething medications you apply directly to irritated gums offer quick relief of teething discomfort.Although some parents may use teething medications, there are questions about how safe and effective many of these products are. Be sure to always check with your doctor or dentist to make sure that a teething product is suitable for your child before you use it.
How Do Teething Rings Work?
One of the safest ways to ease teething pain in a baby is to offer them a teether. Teething rings
filled with gel give your child something soft and safe to chew on. Simply place the teething ring into the refrigerator to cool it down before your baby chews on it. As your baby chews, the teething ring cools their irritated gums. Most babies love chewing and it's a natural medication-free way to ease gum irritation and distract baby from teething pain at the same time.
Natural Teething Remedies
Homeopathic teething products made with 100% natural ingredients offer a non-medicated way to ease discomfort when new teeth begin appearing. These teething products are available as tablets you place under baby's tongue and suitable for babies 6 months of age and older. More research is needed to confirm that these natural remedies are effective for helping to relieve teething pain. Talk with your child’s doctor before using any natural teething product.
How to Care for Baby Teeth
Once a baby's teeth appear, it's important to take care of them. Most dentists recommend gently cleaning a baby's gums even before their first teeth break through the gum line. For this, baby needs a toothbrush. Adult toothbrushes are too large and the bristles too hard for a baby's delicate mouth. Get them off to a good start with a toothbrush designed just for them. For baby's first toothbrush
, choose one that's soft and easy to handle. Brushes made of 100% silicone are free of phthalates and BPA. These specially-designed brushes gently massage a baby's gums and are designed for a tiny mouth.
Once baby is old enough, treat them to a fun, flexible, brightly-colored toothbrush in the shape of an animal or character. Choose from ones made of medical-grade silicone that are free of BPA. These brushes are soft and gentle enough for a baby's small mouth. Don't forget about tooth gel to make brushing more fun. Choose from gels made of natural ingredients and pleasing flavors. Make tooth-brushing a fun experience for baby with the right toothbrush and a tooth gel made just for them.
Taking care of a baby's teeth and keeping them comfortable when they're coming in will make everyone happier. Make tooth-brushing easy with the right toothbrush and tooth gel.
