Tips On How To Help Your Teething Baby

 

No, not my babies. They have now fully grown milk teeth. Thank goodness for that! But my friends’ babies teeth have just started coming out and I wanted to help out by getting advice from our fellow bloggers who has some tips for baby teething.

Before we go into that – just a note that all babies are different when it come to baby teething.

Some babies are born with their first teeth. Others start teething before they are 4 months old, and some after 12 months. But most babies start teething at around 6 months. Evelyn’s teething started around 10 months whilst Ethan was around 4 months.

Teething symptoms

Some baby teeth may feel no pain or discomfort at all. At other times, you may notice these symptoms:

  • your baby’s gum is sore and red – this mean the milk tooth is coming through
  • one cheek is flushed
  • your baby is dribbling more than usual
  • they are gnawing and chewing on things a lot, especially with their hands.
  • they are more feeling or expressing distress or irritation than usual

Some people think that teething causes other symptoms, such as diarrhoea and fever, but there’s no evidence to support this.

You know your baby best. If they have any symptoms that are causing you concern, then seek medical advice. You can call NHS 111 or contact your GP.

 

So from our fellow bloggers, I give you their tips on how to help your teething baby…

3. An amber ankle bracelet.

Erica, The Incidental Parent: “I was dubious but it seems to work!”  

4. Anbesol Liquid, & Dr Browns Watermelon freezer teether

Sophia, Tattooed Tealady found this be the quickest and most effective method for helping out little one with teething on a day-to-day basis, alongside Ashton & Parson’s teething powders and the Dr Browns Watermelon freezer teether, which is super slim and easy to grip with little hands! 

5. Breastmilk ice lollies

 Nadia, Scandi Mummy: “Breastmilk ice lollies served us well!”

6. A damp clean flannel in the freezer

Emma, Ready Freddie Go used to place a damp clean flannel in the freezer and then let Freddie chomp on it to provide relief. “I have heard of people doing this alternatively by soaking it in chamomile tea and freezing to provide relief too.”

7. A cool cucumber or carrot stick

Emily, Emily and IndianaIf they’re little, a cool cucumber or carrot stick is great for little gums to chew on!” 

8. Ice cubes in the frozen fruit feeder & Nelsons teething powder

Lynne, New Mummy Blog“Put ice cubes in the frozen fruit feeder net for little ones to sit and chomp on. Also Nelsons teething powder.” 

9. Biltong to chew on (dried meat!)

Hannah, Planes Trains and Meltdowns: I lived in South Africa for 5 years and there they use biltong to chew on (dried meat!)” 

10. Your Teething Baby: From one parent to another – The Book!

Emma, Emma Reed has gone a step further! We had an awful time with teething and tried so many products. It got to the point where I’d hunted for answers and books on the internet but couldn’t find much so I decided to write my own book. I made contact with the largest teething companies and spoke to other parents to create a one stop guide full of tips, advice, remedies, symptoms to look for, old wives tales, oral care and even ice lolly recipes. It’s out now on Amazon (if you wanted to include it). I also have plenty of posts about teething on my site including a sneak peek of the book.”

 

So there you have it. I hope the above advices help you and your little ones lives a little bit more bearable.

    Fantastic tips and I love that they’ve all come from fellow parents 🙂 My two year old is currently getting her molars and wanting to chew everything!

    Some great tips. I agree that the powders seem to be the only thing that work for my little one. Cucumber is also a winner!

    Amazing tips and tricks. It must be so heartbreaking to see the little one cry because of the pain.

    I think one of the major symptoms is that baby starts chewing hard things. It is already mentioned in the post. All other symptoms are new to me. Nice post 🙂

    Good tips. We’ve had good luck with wet washcloths.

    These tips are great! We are way past teething here, but the cold/frozen washcloth is a great tip. My youngest niece just ended her teething stage and she used to chew on everything! The washcloth was a great help for her.

    Great tips. The teething powders were the only thing that seemed to work for my two but interestingly they both responded to different ones, so if one doesn’t work try another.

    It’s such a tough phase both for mother and baby and I remember using the teething powders with a vengeance. And calpol and cooling rings, and Farley’s baby rusks, they seemed to help. #FabFridayPost

      Oh yes! Calpol definitely helps – a lot! & Farley’s baby rusks too. I have forgotten about that one. Good call. x

    Keira seemed to suffer so bad when she was teething – we used anbesol liquid and I also bought an amber teething necklace from a shop in Greenwich. Sarah #FabFridayPost

    Fantastic tips Su, and timely too. As we holiday with family and a new cousin is teething. I will share this with the momma’s and see what they do! As for us, we put bagels in the freezer and let the girls gnaw away! #FabFridayPost xoxo
