There are a lot of ways to help your kids relieve from teething pain.

You should not rely on gel filled plastic rings because they might leak when your kid starts biting it and they may cause a choking hazard. Try to avoid these things. You can start with a raw carrot or a celery stick that has been cooled in the fridge or you can as well start with just a cold wet flannel.

You should also be very careful while relieving your kid’s teething pain. You should not make use of any gel for relieving because there are not many explanations about its working, either it works better or not but instead you can relieve your kids’ affected gums by rubbing with your clean finger. The gel may have an adverse effect on your kids’ gums and may cause severe pain and itching instead of relieving.

In case everything fails to relieve your kids’ bleeding gums or pain in gums then you may give a dose of sugar free paracetamol or ibuprofen to your kids but remember to use this treatment on the last priority and before you give the dose to your kid make sure to read the instructions first or as prescribed by the doctor.

Teething can make your kid feel discomfort and irritated but it will not make your kid ill.

If you see that your kid is having the symptoms that generally don’t appear in teething then you are highly recommended to visit your doctor.

Some parents really want to soothe their kids’ gums but they don’t know what should be done and how to be done? Parents can calm their kids’ gums in the best way. What parents need to do is to apply a gentle pressure on the gums and then slowly rubbing and pressing on the affected gums to relieve from pain. Make sure that your finger is clean otherwise germs will enter in gums and may cause severe problems and burning effect.

Your kid might not eat properly as he has lost his appetite, during the teething phase. In this case you can make your kid eat chilled yogurt and it’s really soothing and pleasing. In the teething phase, breastfeeding or else bottle feeding can be more painful instead of relieving as sucking causes the blood to rush quickly to the swollen areas and make them more susceptible. Try making you kid drink from cup or glass with help of soup spoon, that’s pretty easy and will not cause any pain.

At the end of the topic it is advised to you to be careful while your kids are teething, don’t make them swallow or bite things that may harm them. In case of any severe symptoms immediately consult your physician for the sake of your kid’s health.
