Although teething is a normal part of childhood, it can be painful. However, it can be treated. For more information about teething, see below:
– If when your child starts running a fever or develops rashes that cannot be attributed to anything else, she should be treated as soon as possible.
– Symptoms of teething include changes in sleep patterns, fussiness, a loss of appetite, or an increase in drooling.
– If you are looking for safe and effective products to help your child deal with the pain and discomfort of teething, try using products designed for teething such as teething rings. Teething tablets should not be given to children under 2. As an alternative, small spoons and gauze pads are acceptable.
