Tips for helping your teething baby:

  • Rash/Drool 
    • Wipe away, use a non-irritant fabric (such as bamboo) / use an absorbent bib that is soft, that doesn’t cause too muchheat to develop around the neck and chest area.
      • This will help prevent any chest infections from developing / use a barrier cream on it at night to help heal it and prevent further irritation.




  • Swollen Gums
    • These can be very sore, baby may refuse bottle of breat when teething hard
      • Pressure from chewing may help to relieve it
      • Find a safe, soft, texturized item that your baby can put into their mouth to help alleviate some pain (some soft silicon teething items are very good for this)
      • Or you may even find that your baby ends up chewing your clothes / blankets, etc. – they are looking for relief from different sensations & sensory stimulation
    • Give them something cool to bite on can help
      • Using a clean finger, if you rub along the gums, the pressure on the gums can help alleviate the pain.
      • Sugar free teething gels and homeopathic powders/granules are also helpful.
      • You can also give an infant paracetamol or ibuprofen.
