My baby was teething.
You never know when it’s going to happen, or how your child may react.
Looks like a pretty awesome way to spend a week, right?
Nope. Not in the slightest! But there are ways to tackle the woes of teething.
- Rub your baby’s gums Use a clean finger and rub your baby’s gums – the pressure really helps! You can also rub your baby’s gums with a teething toy.
- Something cold Chill a teething toy in the refrigerator, or get a chilled facecloth, and allow your baby to chew or suck on it.
- Watch out for drool Utilize bibs and keep wiping your baby’s face try. Sometimes excessive drool can cause babies to have pretty nasty diaper rashes – so possibly keep a layer of diaper cream on their tush.
- Infants’ Advil – This is my favorite over the counter remedy for my babies!
It is available for infants ages 6 to 23 months old in a non- staining, Dye-Free White Grape liquid, and is available at most drugstores — I bought mine at Walgreens. The concentrated Drops are alcohol-free and come equipped with a syringe for easy dosing, contains ibuprofen, and can relieve babies’ pain with up to 8 hours of relief in just one dose.
