Baby Teething? | by Kristen Bason

Don’t despair, chew on this:

• Gum massage: Use a clean finger and rub baby’s gums

• A teething ring: Try one made of firm rubber; avoid the liquid-filled variety

• Keep it cool: Chill a wet washcloth (If baby’s eating solid foods, offer cold items, such as a frozen waffle or applesauce)

• Try an over-the-counter remedy: Acetaminophen or ibuprofen help (Avoid teething medications that are rubbed directly on a baby’s gums—too much may interfere with baby’s normal gag reflex)
