Ease Baby's Distress during Teething
- There are special rubber toys or teething rings which contain gel that you can offer to your baby to chew on when he's teething. These will help relieve soreness around his gums.
- If your baby has started on solids, you can also offer him cold foods like yoghurt, cold stewed and mashed apple or banana, as these foods will help ease teething pain and reduce gum swelling.
- Use a cold washcloth and press it gently on baby's gums.
- Never use any medication without consulting a doctor.
