Baby teething is part of the baby’s growth process. Children usually start teething in the sixth month. However, it varies from child to child. Some children begin teething early in comparison to others.
Baby Teething Signs
Trust me it’s hard to believe a lot of fluid can come out of a baby’s mouth unless you see it yourself. In fact, teething stimulates salivation and starts when the baby is between 10 weeks to two months – three months, although my daughter started when she was older.
As a result of continued salivation and drip, the child begins to have a reddish rash around his mouth, which according to the dentist is a sign of teething. However, this was treated by applying cream and taking care of the baby cream at regular intervals.
Drooling and dripping all the time can also frustrate your baby and his / her health. Do not worry if your child does not have any other signs of cold and flu.
If you are breastfeeding, your child may choose not to feed too, or he may not be fed at all if he is teething. Sucking increases the pain they feel. This is perfectly normal, nothing to worry about unless they refuse to eat anything for days. I recommend that you contact your doctor if it takes more than two or three days.
Trying to suck or bite fingers
The repeated action that he directs to his mouth, or holding his fingers in his mouth is a certain ticking sign.
Some children suffer from a lot of pain during teething, while not suffering a few children. Consult your doctor about how, when, and what painkillers to give your child
Waking up on the middle of the sleep
Your baby may be as restless during the night as they are during the day, especially if they are still working on that first pearly white.
But as said earlier, it is not mandatory that all children show the same teething signs. While some will experience symptoms as mentioned above, others will show other signs or no signs at all.
Inflamed red gums are also a sign of teething, as noted by my pediatrician. For a quick rest, rub your finger gently above the gums.
Refuse to eat
Often due to pain and irritation during teething, children refuse to eat too much. If it lasts for a long time, contact your pediatrician and ask for a solution.
